After living in Virginia and visiting the shops numerous times, we finally got around to getting the paid "Colonial" experience. We enjoyed the courthouse skit, the Governor's Mansion and seeing the canons and rifles fired. The wigmakers, blacksmith, clockmaker, etc were all very interesting and...More

Grab your ticket at the Visitors Center and start exploring. The town , for me, only had modest changes since the last time I visited. Highlight of my visit...the Coffeehouse. There had always been a Victorian holdout in that spot. The archaeology was done and...More

The buildings were very cool, but it definitely is a tourist trap. Parking on the weekends is an adventure in itself. We enjoyed the few "in character" folks we ran into.

We spent 2 weeks in Williamsburg and revisited most of the historic sites. We were lucky enough to catch the last day of firing the bricks in the brickyard which is done at Thanksgiving time every year.

I had not been to Williamsburg in many years, but returned with some friends who had never been there before. We even stayed in one of the colonial houses. (Some are nicer than others; some have canopy beds, some just feel old). We had been...More

We enjoyed visiting Colonial Williamsburg. It has changed from the last time we were there. The buildings were more modern but a long walk to visit the various buildings. The downtown area is about two blocks long. They have a horse and buggy ride on...More

It is, but I would take one with larger wheels, in that some of the older streets and buildings have the original roads and floors. Things are at a fairly slow pace so you should not be hurried to go anywhere.
