    Stafford is surrounded by some very beautiful countryside. Some of the places you might want to visit are Prince William Forest Park and the Chopawamsic Backcountry Area. Stafford is also the home of George Washington's boyhood where the site of Ferry Farm can be visited. While you are in Stafford, you can take a driving historical tour of the African American and Civil War points of interest. I hope these suggestions help you in your travel planning. Have a wonderful trip!

    If you get the opportunity, I would suggest visiting Williamsburg. The Historic Area is beautiful and rather extraordinary to see. Should you venture into Merchants Square in Colonial Williamsburg, be sure to stop by the Cheese Shop for gourmet goodies, delicious sandwiches and more! I would also recommend Historic Jamestowne - just a short drive from Colonial Williamsburg, if you take the Parkway. It too is beautiful and "untouched." Plus, the archaeological excavation is extremely fascinating. Riverwalk Landing in Yorktown is quite fun as well - with the beach, shopping and dining. I can't seem to narrow it down... Hope this helps! :)

    Not sure if this counts as historical or not but a tour of the infamous Eastern State Penitentiary might be a fun. You can see some of the sites in Philly's Old City and catch a bus near the Constitution Center for a short ride to the prison: http://www.easternstate.org And of course everyone can run the Rocky steps in front of the Philly Art Museum.

    Why not head down to Skyline Drive? it's definitely the quietest time of the year, but it'll be a nice contrast to the hustle and bustle of NOVA. You can walk the many trails it offers and enjoy the clean, crisp winter air. Or you could just spend your time indoors next to the fire place or in a hot tub outside.
