The settlement was absolutely wonderful. It was the first day open after Tropical Storm Arthur. A few of the people weren't there which was understandable. Everyone seemed to be in good spirits and in character. It was interesting to learn about the settlement, and there were lots of animals to see and pet. The only disappointment was lunch at the Kings Head. I paid $9 for the entree tossed salad, hoping for a nice big fresh salad... and it was served on a dessert plate. It was extremely small for almost $10, I'd hate to see what the "side salad" was. It also said it was garden greens with fresh veggies. It was romaine lettuce with a bit of carrots, radish and celery... and one slice of tomato. They also forgot to bring the bread it was supposed to come with, I actually figured they had given me a side salad as a mistake which is why I didn't get the bread, but the bill told me otherwise. A friend ordered fish and chips and said it was pretty good, and the maple brand squash pie was delicious. Overall Kings Landing was a delightful experience, just don't order salad, it's a ripoff.

King's Landing is a "in character" village depicting life in the 1800's by showing you how family lived in decade segments of the 1800s by letting you into their day to day living in their homes. All guides are dressed in the fashion for that decade and their position in the community.
You will visit lawyers, farmers, shop owner, clerics and doctors as they go about their daily lives. Many of the family are "Empire Loyalist " who left the United States to stay true to the British Royalty.
The King's Head Inn is an excellent eating place with fare to match the era but not the prices. Their Sunday supper is really good with Yorkshire puddings and perfect roast of beef. Desert are diet breakers!!!!

This recreated town and outlying farms and homes was a great way to spend the afternoon. The costumed interpretation of the workers was great. Everyone was friendly and outgoing involving visitors and treating them as if they were visiting in their time. It even has a nice restaurant in the village to have a nice relaxing lunch.

We had never heard of this, however, we were recommended to go there by our campground, My Brothers Place. We are really glad we went.

The village was very realistic and there was a restaurant that had great food and drink. With or without children it is a great place to visit. The cost is very minor compared to the entertainment. There is considerable walking, however, they do have horse drawn wagons you can get rides on.

Do plan to spend the full day there if you want to see all of it.

This is an amazing collection of historical buildings from the surrounding area, and the park is well operated. We arrived about about 11 am and left when it closed at 5 pm, but still did not see the entire park. It is very extensive. We had lunch at the 1800's restaurant, where we were served by costumed pioneers. What surprised me most was the large number of reenactors on staff at the park, and these persons were located in every building that was open. (Virtually all buildings are open.) Each reenactor portrays someone from the era representing the building, and many of these are performing trades (woodworking, blacksmithing, printing, cooking, etc.) with equipment of the 1800s. These persons were obviously well trained for their parts, and they made the park come alive as we talked with them.
I HIGHLY recommend this park to anyone that likes history. It is a real gem and well worth a day of your time if you are in the area. The entry fee was very reasonable for a day of fun and learning.
