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

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.

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

The visitor center closes at 5pm but the park is open 6am until sunset. Also the historical town roads that are closed for foot traffic during the day open up to vehicles in the evening.
