This is a really fun place to take kids of all ages. Mine are 6-15, and they all like it. They are always having different historical events. The day we went, we got to learn some of the old dances like the Virginia Reel, watch people cooking, make Valentine's Day Cards, see someone weaving on a big old loom, and lots of other early American experiences. It was really fun.

Latta Plantation is great for homeschooling families! They have special "homeschool days" every month or two during the school year that include special exhibits, tours of the plantation home and old fashioned games and crafts. The grounds are very pleasant, with farm animals and several outbuildings to explore (an old kitchen building, slave buildings and barns). The Plantation is at the end of a peninsula, and there are many walking and equestrian trails to explore.
