It was a blazing hot day but we really loved hearing the guide's thorough stories about the history and seeing the field. We toured downtown Yorktown after and enjoyed the waterfront with ice cream.

Never visited here before on other trips to the area. Don't pass this by, stop to see the history. Nicely kept.

We took the driving tour thru the battlefield but did not get a chance to stop in the Visitors Center. It was a long and informative tour there are many points to stop, get out, visit and learn along the way

On our trip to Williamsburg we went to Yorktown National Battlefield. We opted to bypass the Victory Center since we had a good dose of Revolutionary life in Colonial Williamsburg. Our ticket for Historic Jamestown was good for Yorktown Battlefield. We spent some time in...More

I wouldn't recommend it. Because of the size of the roads and the twists and turns, it would be cumbersome. It would be much easier without pulling an RV.

Do you suggest we buy tickets ahead? How many people do you expect? Where do you suggest we look for accomodations?

My dad is over 60 and he was offered a lifetime pass for 10 dollars and is good for all national parks. We were there on a Wednesday and had the park to ourselves. They offer an audio tour so you can move at your own pace.
