We had a group of junior/seniors from Idaho there in May. Rained the two days we were there, but being from Idaho, the 19 of us still enjoyed the historical community. Seeing the area, the historic community, and re-enactments taking place brought the earlier development...More

Several blocks of original or reconstructed buildings designed to transport you back to 1770's. See the house where Thomas Jefferson studied; see the Virginia Legislature where many founding father's argued the points of England's increasing demands on the colonists. My favorite stops were the wheelwrights...More

We are travelling in mid June with two grandchildren, 7 and 10, so we are conscious of what will interest them. Does anyone care to recommend which ticket is best? I know you can walk the grounds but is the sampler ticket best given the age of our group. Opinions appreciated.

Do you need to get reservations in advance or can you get tickets the day you want to go? We are going in Mid July and I am not familiar with how it works visiting Colonial Williamsburg. We aren't sure our week's plans yet but wanted to make sure we didn't miss out on visiting Colonial Williamsburg.
