Historical reenactments succeed where time machines fail: transporting guests back in time without turning them into disfigured human-tadpole hybrids. Peek into the past sans mutation with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a 400th commemoration all-access pass to Henricus Historical Park (a $50 value) in Chester.

Commemorating the 400th anniversary of the founding of Henricus, the second successful English settlement in North America, Henricus Historical Park whisks timesplorers through history with period-dressed interpreters and special commemorative events. Amid the smell of black powder, the sound of tamping cornmeal, and the tremor-causing footfalls of giant badgers, guests witness life as it would have been for the original 300 settlers. History buffs can visit any of a dozen recreated colonial structures and join the militia, sow seeds, help with blacksmithing, or just sit back and watch interpreters reenact battles and traditional fantasy baseball drafts. In the recreated Virginian Indian Arrohateck village adventurers can help make a canoe by scraping charred wood from a fallen trunk or climb inside a Virginian Indian long house filled with artifacts.

In addition to free admittance to Henricus Historical Park for two adults throughout the year, guests with the all-access pass can attend special commemorative events. Also, with 20% off in the recently remodeled gift shop, history wanderers can peruse hundreds of items, such as early American colonial children's games, as well as an extensive selection of hard-to-find books on local history and wooden denture decorating.

Wow--what a wonderful park and the actors were fabulous--especially the one in the Reverend's home.

Was so enjoyable and learned a lot. The park was beautiful and even enjoyed watching the bald eagle above us in the tree! Got a great picture when it took flight. Watching the James River was so soothing. Highly recommend this experience and look forward to returning.
