Went here with our grandson for the day. Loved the interaction with the historic citizens. One of the greatest lessons was hearing Patrick Henry share about his life regarding how he started working here and the work in volved in playing the role. Then had hot chocolate with George Washington Fantastic

I grew up in the area and have been many times, and it never got old. If your a fan of history on any level this is a must see. I think it's one the biggest outdoor museum, if not the biggest. Beautiful and so much to see and experience. Williamsburg is a must visit, with Busch gardens and water... More

Guides are friendly and very knowledgeable. Great storytellers. Horse carriage is fun but pricey. Go to the court reenactment. It was a blast.

Walk down the one mile Duke of Gloucester street and stop at the many different tradesmen's shops. You can walk around Colonial Williamsburg for free, but to visit the shops and learn about their trades you will need to purchase a ticket. It's best to view the film at the visitor's center before going to the village. Parking at Colonial... More

I had the honor of visiting Colonial Williamsburg for a week. I was able to visit all of the shops and observe the interpreters perform different skills, my favorite was wig making. The taverns provide great food and service. One can also participate in the evening walking tours that take visitors inside some of the buildings. They offer court sessions... More

It was just nice to take a step back into history and to also see the staff, dressed up in colonial times. It made you think about how it was back then to how it is now. It makes you appreciate what you have, where your are and not to take life for granted.

Colonial Williamsburg has new and different events every season. I've lived in Williamsburg since 1987 and still enjoy going to CW for the many event they have. Chownings is my favorite!

A great day out with something for all the family. Things to see, hear, taste and buy. Character actors give the place an authenticity that is both charmin and endearing.

Williamsburg is my happy place! You will want to bring the kids here and walk back into time. Go into each building and listen to the stories. Stop outside and sit down and let Thomas Jefferson tell you a little about himself and answer your questions. But when the drums and fife corps come down the street be ready to... More
