On a recent Williamsburg Weekend Getaway we also went to the Jamestown Settlement. It has a very interesting display of an Indian village, fort settlement and three replica ships. While they may not be actually be "clipper" ships, they were amazing replicas. It was awesome...More

Remember there are two Jamestown parks. One is federal the other by the state of Virginia. This is the one with the ships. Call and ask them for an answer. Laquinta hotelin town allows pets small fee. Enjoy.
