More than a decade before the Pilgrims made landfall in Massachusetts, America’s first permanent colony was founded by the English at Jamestown, Virginia. The date of the settlement was April 1607. The first inhabitants of Jamestown chose a promising area for their colony, but soon faced considerable problems. You can learn all about them when you make your own voyage to Jamestown. While you’re planning your trip, consider booking transportation through an educational tour company.
You can see the site of the original settlement at Historic Jamestowne. The area is still under an active archaeological dig, and your group can visit! Check out the interactive map of discoveries, including the latest artifacts found in the area. It can help you narrow down exactly which sites you’d like to visit here. Kids in particular love to watch ongoing excavations and ask questions of the archaeologists as they work. There are lots of scheduled activities and programs, so be sure to check out the website as you plan your visit. You should also set aside time for the Visitor Center, which exhibits more than 1,000 artifacts and has an informative film that introduces the history of the region. If those 1,000-plus artifacts weren’t enough, stop by the Nathalie P. & Alan M. Voorhees Archaearium—an award-winning museum with more than 4,000 artifacts!
After your stop at Historic Jamestown, swing by the Jamestown Settlement. It provides an immersive experience into the world of the colonists. There are year-round exhibits and events at this living history museum. Watch the introductory film in the museum theater and tour the extensive gallery exhibits. Then, tour the grounds outdoors and check out the historical interpreters. They explain life during the 1600s. Visit the Powhatan Indian Village to explore the culture of the original inhabitants of the area. Then, stop by the re-created James Fort and the re-creation of one of the ships that brought the colonists to Virginia’s shores.

If you’re holding a wedding, and you have a number of guests coming in from out of town to attend, you may want to consider providing wedding transportation. Part of being an excellent host is providing hotel transportation to and from your guests’ hotel to the rehearsal dinner, wedding, reception, and any other wedding events that you want them to attend. Here are some more benefits of offering wedding transportation.
Make Sure Guests Show Up On Time
If you have guests that are notoriously late, you can ensure that they show up on time to each wedding event by providing convenient wedding transportation. This is particularly useful for your wedding party, who may need to be at several different wedding events on time. You can help your wedding party stay calm, relaxed, and refreshed by proving charter bus or limo service to and from your wedding events.
Keep Everyone Safe
Wedding transportation can help everyone stay safe while celebrating your happy event. If your guests will be drinking alcohol at your rehearsal dinner or wedding reception, it’s best to provide a sedan service or limo service to transport your guests to and from the events. Rather than risking your guests getting a DUI or having a dangerous accident, you can allow them to party and have fun, while staying safe.
Help Out of Town Guests Navigate
When guests travel long distances to attend your wedding, you should do everything you can to make their trip to your wedding venue and reception easy and convenient. If all of your guests are staying at the same hotel, you can easily provide a charter bus or hotel transportation to ensure that they don’t have to navigate unfamiliar streets and stress over traffic.
At Haymarket Transportation, we provide full-service wedding transportation in Washington, D.C., to help make your wedding the most memorable event of your life. You can choose between our elegant limo service, our charter bus service, or our comfortable, luxurious private sedans. For more information, call us today at (301) 778-2007.
