Colonial Williamsburg was reconstructed using original foundations and plans of each building, street and businesses. The actors portraying the people of the time are very good at what they do. You get the feel of what it was like to live during the period of...More

We really enjoyed our visit, a step back in time. Carriage ride, open market, shops and history galore.

First a tip: If you visit Yorktown know that if you visit Jamestowne you can get half off your entrance fee to Jamestowne. I was here on a Sunday in June and I think that's a regular deal, nothing special going on. But check for...More

We walked the old town then wandered down to the water and the beach. Quaint little town with so much history.

Colonial williamsburg is currently a two-headed site. Part of it is no-cost to visitors, and there is a charge for specific sites. For historical interested, do your homework prior to purchasing you tickets. These "admission only" spots bring oral interpretations from paid staffs. Still, there...More

This park is actually made up of three locales: Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown. Jamestown is the ruins of the historic settlement, while Yorktown is the lovely town and notable battlefield. Colonial Williamsburg is by far the most famous and is worth a day all on...More

There were no carriage rides, there was nothing to do except take the trolley around the area because it is only spring time so nothing is open! The saving grace to that was the person driving the trolley was very nice, friendly and funny.

As noted by others, this entry should deal with the ‘park’ which lines the roadway between Yorktown and Jamestown via Williamsburg (see separate reviews). As such, the park is not much. Lots of greenery, and absence of roadside business or advertising makes this a nice...More

It really is worth a visit. We viewed the short movie and then walked through the small museum. The highlight was really the tour guide, a NP ranger. His "history class" was anything but boring. The children were engaged as well as the history/military buffs....More
