The drive from Alexandria, Virginia was scheduled to take 2 hours and 45 minutes but due to multiple car accidents, it took a little over 4 hours.

Traffic on I95

We still made it in time to walk around Colonial Williamsburg and have dinner at Aromas Restaurant.

Williamsburg Ambrosia Restaurant Patti and Logan
We chose to sit outdoors at Aromas Restaurant since the weather was so beautiful. Aromas is a casual restaurant with a good vegetarian selection. John had the Shrimp and Grits which was particularly yummy. Logan ate a Portobello mushroom burger with pesto. I had the Thai Vegetable Wrap with delicious mango pieces. If you’re in Williamsburg, I highly recommend Aromas as a casual, delicious and not too expensive place to eat. The cost for the three of us was under $30 including a bottle of water and a coffee.
