We left Yorktown as our last battlefield destination before we moved out of state and were glad that we wrapped up our Virginia adventures this way. Arriving at the visitors center I showed my military ID as was able to get my national park pass...More
We did the tour aound the visitors cente that takes around 45 minutes, and was very informative. There is a short video presentation in the visitors centre and some displays.
We then went on the driving tour of the battle field, I think around sixteen...More
We did the driving tour of the battlefield. The CD is only $5.00 and gives great directions to each of the sites, plus interesting commentaries of what occurred at each spot. There is a good deal of walking at some of the stops, but what...More
If one is in the area this historical site must be visited along with a trip to Jamestown.
This was where the British army found itself bottled up and finally had to surrender beginning the end of the Revolutionary War.
Everything is well presented and...More

Our favorite thing at the park was the driving tour,...More
When visiting Williamsburg, do not miss going to Yorktown Battlefield, part of the National Park system. You can reach the battlefield from Williamsburg by taking the Colonial Parkway, a beautiful drive. Once there, stop at the visitor's center and watch the short movie about this...More
This place is run by the National Parks Service. The ranger guide was very knowledgeable with the “Siege of Yorktown” explicitly explaining the details of the siege. Part of the Historic Triangle which should not be missed.
We enjoyed our visit to the Yorktown Battlefield. We watched the film first and afterwards, we went on a guided tour with a ranger. The tour, which lasted for a little over an hour, stayed around the grounds of the visitor center and we learned...More
Our family thought this was the best part of our trip to Williamsburg. Everything was quite close to the Visitor Center. They had a movie there to give us an introduction and then a tour guide was waiting for us as it ended to give...More
This is a National Park and we attended a talk by the Park Ranger, which was very good and informative. We really learned a lot. The museum is good, but after seeing Jamestown Settlement and Colonial Williamsburg the driving tour was a let down. We...More

There is no app for the battle field car tour. Take your time and go through the museum first and take a few notes. There is so much information in that museum you will not be able to remember at least I didn't. Start on the car tour there are stops and information signs along the way. They need to upgrade their audio information but I suppose that takes bucks.
I was by myself so I could move along at my own pace. I did the visitor Center and took my time on the roads around the park, reading each sign. I spent at least 3 hours. I would highly recommend the American Revolution... More
I was by myself so I could move along at my own pace. I did the visitor Center and took my time on the roads around the park, reading each sign. I spent at least 3 hours. I would highly recommend the American Revolution museum on the other side of Yorktown. This would take a full day for both. I would also recommend the Yorktown Pub on Water St. for lunch.
