Not sure but this is either our 9th or 10th trip to Williamsburg. We love it. New things are learned every day. We brought friends for their first visit. They will return again.

So much history and things to see throughout this National Park. We did the driving battle field tour and loved the scenery and learned a lot along the way. It’s lovely to see America’s history preserved.
