You have to see how the governor lived. This spacious mansion is both beautiful and reveals so much of our colonial history. It's been updated recently and beautiful. The tour guides do a great job of providing the history of the home and it's occupants.

You begin your tour in the entry hall decorated by swords and muskets and continue past various rooms to the upstairs bed chambers of the Governor, his wife and their daughters. The house is beautifully decorated with nice furnishings. Outside you can visit a cellar,...More
Beautifully restored palace that also is a venue for various day and evening presentations in Colonial Williamsburg. The grounds and gardens in back are meant to be enjoyed after the tour of the house. Gorgeous!

Go to the Williamsburg visitor center, there, you can get a bundle or like a day or two pass for the events that happen to be open that day. First, get a visitor schedule at the desk when you enter the center to see what is open on which day then, depending on your schedule, you can get the appropriate pass. When we lived in VA, we always had a Patriot pass - good for a year, but you can get smaller passes a day or two.
