Our fourth time and we never fail to discover some new insight that delights. Get the app. Try the Christmas party at Raleigh Tavern.

Nice part of town with people dressed in historic outfits. Horse and carriage rides are available. Along the street there are many small little stores and and boutiques as well as few restaurants. Overall very nice place to visit.

How can you not love it? Living history at its finest. Often copied but rarely surpassed. The role players are astonishing. They remain in character and know their point in his5ory. The restaurants are fun and again are living his5ory at its best.

We did not bother buying a ticket to enter any of the buildings/exhibits. We simply walked around and took pictures of all the various buildings. There was enough to see to keep us occupied. Plenty of shops selling foodstuffs like chocolate, snacks, and gifts.

We absolutely love visiting Colonial Williamsburg and this was another wonderful experience. We enjoyed a carriage ride with a very knowledgable driver, ate at the King's Arms Tavern and havd a fantastic meal. Loved the service, our waitress was one of the best.

We visited Colonial Williamsburg November 6-10, 2017. We enjoyed it, as we have several visits over the last many years. In the past, there was a lot of what I will call pageantry in the old city. We noticed there was nearly none of that...More

It was the one recommended more for adults. We walked to 3 locations with a guide and listened to a ghost story in each location. The story tellers were very good. Not sure what it was called, but hope that helps.
