Overview

Colonial Williamsburg is the only place that takes you back in time to the dawn of America. This isn't just a place where things once happened. They're happening, right now, here in the 18th century. We're the place where the idea of our country is being born; the place where the ideals we stand for as Americans are being defined. We are the 18th century "live," filled with the stories of the women, men, and children—free and enslaved—whose values and visions gave us a new world. Step back in time and meet the people who made America—sing with them, dance with them, eat with them, and have fun with them. For every person who wants to understand this country, this is your place.

We have visited Colonial Williamsburg 3 times in the past 10 or so years. Our first visit (2008?) was incredible ~ there were numerous interpreters who "lived" their trade or went about regular day-to-day activities. They were friendly and eager to share their knowledge with...More

We had the weeklong pass for the colonial triangle, which was great since we spent two days in each area. Williamsburg requires a little strategy. It is not great during downpours as there are limited spaces where you can take extended cover . If rain...More

This is a bit harsh, I'm afraid, but if you've been to other historical villages, Colonial Williamsburg is just as they are. The time period will show the same printing, apothecary, blacksmith, bakery, etc. But it is a wonderful reminder of where we came from...More

Despite the heat and humidity, both the adults and the kids enjoyed traveling back in time to the colonial era.

Great place to take the family, especially if you love history! Stroller friendly. Restaurants are good. It is a little costly, but in my opinion worth it! If you are or were military they have a small lounge to cool off in. That was nice.

The best choice ever for a weekend with your family, specially if you have kids. The enactments, the ambience: everything is reminding us of the times when our country was born.
