Williamsburg East Ghost Tour

72 reviews
The only ghost tour in the world based on the first ever photo-study of ghosts! Real ghost photos, featured in the books Haunted Historic Colonial Williamsburg Virginia with Breakthrough Ghost Photography, Parts 1 & 2, are shown at each stop on a large computer notebook (Samsung Galaxy). Guides will point out the exact location around or in the house or building where the photo was taken and encourage travelers to take their own photos. Tour guides will give relevant historical information pertaining to the haunting as well as personal stories encountered by the book's author and others, including interpreters and security guards from Colonial Williamsburg. Travelers will be given choices about where they would like to stop based on their interests--no tour is ever the same! The East Tour starts at the Capital and continues down Duke of Gloucester Street to the Courthouse of 1770 and walking across the Market Square to the last stop--Williamsburg's most haunted: Peyton Randolph House.

We thoroughly enjoyed exploring this park. From the botanical garden to the reconstructed houses of the early Free Black community, to the hiking and biking trails, you can easily spend several hours enjoying all that this park has to offer.

The botanical garden is incredible. No admission to walk through this beautiful place. Parking nearby and walk about 100 yards on a paved path to the garden and cemetery. Gated to discourage the bunnies and others from munching as you enter a magical space of fairy garden, succulent spaces, wild flowers and therapy garden. Even more as the blooms are amazing as they attract the butterflies and birds. Benches are available to sit and rest throughout, the stroll through the pebble lined spaces to pavers to soil paths is amazing. The garden care takers must be proud of their creation. Roses, hydrangeas, butterfly bushes, wild sunflowers, wild onions and more make you think of the magical world of Dr Seuss. The small water feature is cute as goldfish are present, the butterfly bench is perfect for a photo opportunity. Don’t miss visiting this space if you have the time. A well kept secret for nature lovers.

This review is mostly for the Williamsburg Botanical Gardens located in Freedom Park. This is a delightful very small gardens of about 2 acres. There was a variety of flowers and it was well kept and maintained by the congenial volunteers. We went to the gardens twice while on our trip to Williamsburg and spoke with two different ladies helping in the gardens. The Fairy Garden was a favorite with our granddaughters and one girl commented that it was her favorite activity so far on the vacation. There were many little paths throughout the garden that were fun to explore. There is no charge for visiting, but there is a donation box and on her own, our granddaughter wanted to put a donation in the box. Don't miss this little gem if you are in the area.

I am surprised that this park is not crowded when we visit with our 3 grandchildren. What a pleasure. The one thing I noticed when visiting, was the friendliness of the caretakers of the playground.

So glad we found this park outside of Williamsburg. Very well maintained with a little botanical garden, settlers homes & nice visitors center. Some of the trails are paved. Others are in the woods & marked well and cleared nicely. There is a zip line at this park; although we did use it. Truly worth the scenic drive to this park.
