United States Virginia Williamsburg

King's Arms Tavern

Tips from the community

For an authentic 18th century meal complete with 18th century musicians, you have to dine at the King's Arms. While today you can get a good meal and some entertainment, in the 1770's visitors would have also stayed in the rooms upstairs in the tavern. I highly recommend the peanut soup and although it sounds weird, try the pickled watermelon rind!

  • Virginia's Historic Triangle

    I have spent my whole life visiting different places in Virginia and was lucky enough to live there for six years. In that time I have visited countless historic sites and even had the chance to work at some. From archaeological sites to historic trades, Williamsburg, Yorktown, and Jamestown have a lot to offer any visitor to the Historic Triangle.
