The passes aren't inexpensive, but it's a fascinating place to see how our country was founded. Mansions, miners and tailors shops. Gardens, a maze, farm animals even restaurant and shopping. The historical area and William & Mary Universory spill I to each other with a...More

The history of the entire place is incredible. The tour was great and the kids really enjoyed the horse and carriage ride through the town. The visitor center was great and had such great information.

Not everything was open when my kid and I were there, but enough that it was a lot of good learning, tours, demonstrations, added depth of understanding of who was there, from the rich to the enslaved, farmworkers to a.rtisans

Our family visited Colonial Williamsburg most recently near Christmas time. This is a great time of year to visit because they still have many sites and buildings open, but the crowds are very low. There are also beautiful natural decorations for the season and special...More
