I have seen couple other questions & answers regarding activities (things to see and do) in Williamsburg area.
But my reservation is in the middle of March, 2009, it's my sons' spring vacation week (not easter week). I am staying at Marriott's Manor Club with my 3 children (2 teenagers and a 7 year old boy). I checked google and found out Water USA and Busch Garden are closed that time :(
Please experienced tuggers, what would you recommend me to do in March in Williamsburg? I put Jamestown and Yorktown on my list after I have read other thread, but what else in March (March 15-22)? I will stay a week there and need more things to do to keep my boys busy. Thanks.

Average temps in March are highs in the upper 50s and lows in the 30s which is why the parks are closed.

I dont know too much that there is to do in March but there is a Ripleys Believe it or not Museum, havent been there but drive by every summer. There are also several outlet malls and as you mentioned Jamestown and Yorktown.
