When I saw yankee candle rated so high on here I was thinking "seriously? it's candles, how good could it be?" Boy was I wrong, it was AMAZING! There was SO much to see here besides candles, they had a beautiful Christmas display and other stores that had all sorts of knick knacks, garden stuff, kitchenware, scarves, fragrances, etc, etc,...

Candles are the main attraction obviously, but don't forget about all the Christmas items, Country Store, Popcorn, Fudge ... Too much to name it all. Center stage shows by the animated clock for the kids, big and small.

The Yankee Candle Co in Williamsburg, VA, is a awesome place to visit. The place is huge, the staff are super friendly. There's even a small inside courtyard with tables and chairs, where you can sit and eat lots of treats they sell there. It's a place where young and old can enjoy. And when you are done with your...

Even if you don't love candles, you want to make time to stop here. In the back of the store is a huge room with many Christmas "coves" -- it SNOWS every few minutes! They have lots of cool ornaments!

We went with 12 children. . Ages 6-13. All of them made candles. We shopped in fun craft shops.. had fudge, candy and popcorn. The little ones got to meet Santa and experience an indoor snow storm in July. Pretty fun place if you need an indoor excursion.

This Store is awesome and huge and big inside. The ceilings are painted like clouds in the sky. They have a Christmas shop inside to purchase special ornaments and a train runs along the ceiling too. There is so much for children to do inside the store like make their own candles. Its definitely worth a visit if you have... More

This store was like a wonderland for candle lovers! My teenage kids were even enjoying themselves walking around. And I think the best part was seeing SANTA.

The first time I visited here, I was skeptical because I had my pick of Yankee Candles MUCH closer to my house. Why travel an hour to get to this one? I remember walking in and was immediately overcome and flooded with holiday memories from my childhood. It's like a little mini Christmas town within Williamsburg. There is so much... More

This was my first visit to this place. I was actually reluctant to go in as I really did not want the 1000 different candle scents to explode on my nose. But I was amazed that this place had a little of everything. The candle making was great. kids did the ole dippity do thing. The say Santa in another... More
