Colonial Williamsburg is beautiful and well-preserved but few buildings are open at this time of the year. (The ticket prices are reduced accordingly.) It's larger than most "living history" attractions and is probably more interesting when alive with activity.

We loved walking around Colonial Williamsburg on a lovely Sunday morning. You do not need tickets to take it all in. You still get a great feel for what it was like to live there just by taking a stroll down and back. I loved...More

The restored section is very well done and gives a good feeling of what was like in the eighteenth century. Always a good visit in the Colonial Capital of Virginia.

We visit Colonial Williamsburg every year. This year we went at Christmas. Going to Christmas Town at Busch Gardens is a must. Ice skating, Santa and hot chocolate were highlights this year. Activities for all ages. We love Shields Tavern.

Lots going on in the area of Colonial Williamsburg. The reinactors take it seriously and you can not get them out of character. We participated in the trails and enjoyed this perspective of historical events that actually happened in the area.

Would be best to contact Colonial Williamsburg. I would think you are not the first with the same concern, they would have felt with many times. A call would let them tell you what the can offer and provide.
