A person can just walk into Williamsburg, but the admission pass allows entry into the historical buildings and interact with the tour guides. Many businesses and shops have been restored to the colonial period, and allow visitors to see how things were done in the...More

Not everything was open when my kid and I were there, but enough that it was a lot of good learning, tours, demonstrations, added depth of understanding of who was there, from the rich to the enslaved, farmworkers to a.rtisans

Our family visited Colonial Williamsburg most recently near Christmas time. This is a great time of year to visit because they still have many sites and buildings open, but the crowds are very low. There are also beautiful natural decorations for the season and special...More

Just spent 4 December days in Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown. Beautiful places. Full of tons of accessible early U.S. History. Recommend it for all ages.

Having last visited Colonial Williamsburg many years ago, to see on this trip how much has changed, and how commercial it has become was disappointing.

Whatever you do, go to the Visitor Center for Williamsburg to get a lay of the land. The colonial area takes you back to the 1600's time frame when the country was just getting explored by England and the colonists.

I am not a big fan on history but it is kind of nice to come here and walk around. You get to see streets preserved to have the same appearance as the time during the independence war. There are also staff wearing those costumes...More

That’s something I can’t answer but I suspect there is a service in the city. I would google that question.

It is, but I would take one with larger wheels, in that some of the older streets and buildings have the original roads and floors. Things are at a fairly slow pace so you should not be hurried to go anywhere.
