National Geographic : 1977 May
Ykeour wife For the price of a dozen roses, you can show Europe. On this side of the Atlantic. The place is called The Old Country-Busch Gardens. And it's 360 acres of fun and romance nestled in a centuries-old forest just east of Williamsburg, Virginia. Stroll the cobbled lanes of Britain. Begin in a land of mandolin-strumming minstrels, twirling Scottish dancers, and dragon chasing knights complete with shining armor. Here you can take a contemporary look at classic tales in our double-size version of Shakespeare's famous Globe Theatre. Then let Bil Baird's high-stepping puppets dazzle you with their lifelike maneuvers. And for an eagle's-eye view of what's ahead, climb aboard our high flying Aeronaut Skyride. We dare you not to feel romantic in France. Step into a world where sidewalk artists sketch, fresh-flower vendors stop to chat, and strolling fiddlers fill the air with Parisian melodies. Browse for imported treasures in an open-air marketplace. Sample rare vintage wines in an outdoor cafe.
