In February, I stayed in Suffolk, Virginia for two weeks with my daughter, niece and nephew. We had a blast exploring the area. One of our little side stops was the Yankee Candle Flagship store in Williamsburg, Virginia. After exploring Colonial Williamsburg, we got back in the car and decided to make a quick stop at the Yankee Candle Flagship store. It is set up like a small mall inside. There is a huge Yankee Candle store where they have every scent you can think of. If you are with the kids, bypass the browsing to the back of this area for the Candle Dipping Station. You can choose a candle to dip in different colors.
You can also create wax hands! Each of the kids chose a candle and had so much fun dipping it into the hot colored wax.
Afterwards, we wandered through the Christmas area (which doesn’t hold as much allure in February as it probably does in November!), used the restroom (which was one of the cleanest we saw on the entire trip), and bought some of the best caramel corn I have ever had (they give free samples too!).
Visiting the store is free. The smallest candle to color yourself is $2.99 so a trip to the Yankee Candle store won’t be too expensive. The store is near Colonial Williamsburg so it would be a good quick stop before or after your visit there.
