Visiting Yorktown

Yorktown Virginia
There is a battlefield maintained by the National Park Service.
A Victory Center Museum.
A lovely board walk area full of shops along the York River.
And more, I have not spent nearly enough time in Yorktown...

We went over Thanksgiving weekend with our cousins who were visiting from Texas. 9 cousins ages 17 to 6 - great fun!

to visit the Yorktown Victory Center you'll need to purchase a pass
it is $16.75 for a ticket to the Victory Center for an adult
there are also combination passes including the National Parks, and 
the other two living history museums in the area

I'm linking with Sally for Blue Monday: Sally and friends I hope you find blue sky, blue water ways, blue clothing (blue jackets worn by revolutionary soldiers)

We were at Yorktown some years ago after hours and I remember the "redoubt" shown in your photo. As a matter of fact pretending to be Alexander Hamilton I charged up the side enabling the final victory..... in my imagination....:)
