Candlelight Tour by the James River

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

Experience Virginia by candlelight.

There is something inherently romantic about candlelight. Perhaps it wasn’t so when candles and lanterns were the only source of light after sunset, and eyes grew weary from struggling to see. Yet these days, when bright electricity pierces the night, the gentle glow of candlelight seems only warm and inviting. It smooths sharp edges and softens expressions; it beckons lovers to sit by it, quietly.

Celebrate Valentine’s Day weekend this year with a romantic getaway at a Virginia Bed and Breakfast and a Candlelight Progressive Tour at the James River Plantation. Experience the historic buildings of Piney Grove (1790), Ashland (1835), and Ladysmith (1857) as you would have experienced them when they were first constructed. See the luster of the Piney Grove at Southall’s Plantation collection of antiques by flickering candlelight. Wrap yourself in warm clothing and circumnavigate Dower Quarter (1835) and Duck Church (1917), then head indoors to sip cider and nibble on baked goods by a large, warm fire.

There are dozens of Virginia Bed and Breakfasts in and around Williamsburg, close to the James River Plantation. The Candlelight Progressive Tour would make a delightful addition to any romantic getaway.

The Candlelight Progressive Tour takes place February 12, 13, and 19, 2011. Call (804) 829-2196 or email for additional information and reservations.
