There have been a lot of reviews that said "don't buy the tickets." I disagree - we purchase the tickets and were able into the homes and truly experience the living history. The staff (in costume) were SO incredibly knowledgeable and made each home so...More

A National Treasure. I have been there several times and still want to go again. Something new to see and do every time. Be sure to Visit the Museum while there, as good as any in the State

Spend three full days if you can. It's overwhelming at first, but once you get the feel for it, there is tremendous depth and richness to be discovered. Go straight to the visitor center and don't be shy about asking questions. They are patient and...More

Very pretty town and scenery. We enjoyed walking around, paid $44 each for a day pass which wasn't worth it considering the circumstances. The only problem was a storm had rolled thru the day before and the electricity had been knocked out. No place to...More

My favorite part of a mid-summer visit to Colonial Williamsburg was an evening organ recital at the Bruton Parish Episcopal Church. They seem to do these fairly often, so check it out!

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.
