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 is enough free things to see that warrant a two, or three day visit. Walk the villages and shoppes before indulging the priced locations.
Adjacent to William and Mary university campus which is worth hiking.

Local attractions including performing arts is a great way to enrich your vacation. Some research prior to travel may be a good idea.

Upon arrival check local attraction lists which may include historical reenactments and taking in music, particularity during the summer months.

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 its own.

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 drive, but without the linchpins at either end, the ‘park’ would have no reason to exist. There are plenty of nice drives with scenic turnouts which are not called 'park'.
