6th or 7th time here! Never loses its charm! Go to the Visitors Center first, get your tickets and hop on the free shuttle! Perfect place to go back in time! Many of the structures are original!

Good historical area. Good location, central location,. Prices are a bit high for this type of district.

Our day touring Colonial Williamsburg was filled with relaxing strolls, beautiful scenery, and interesting conversations about Williamsburg’s history. All of the staff are very kind and incredibly informed. Had no trouble with parking and found delicious food in the neighboring markets.

All of the actors/interpreters were more than the average in all aspects. They talked with visitors and it’s like they study the history daily. Will return.

Everyone who visits Colonial Williamsburg will learn something about pre-war for independence colonial Virginia. No matter how learned you may think you are, you will still learn something new. I never knew that history was so fluid and always changing.
