It is an amazing place and really neat to see the crafts done like they did over 200 years ago. It is great they preserve the old practices. Great learning about how it was back then. The people are really interactive with all the guest. Really enjoyable experience.

Williamsburg has a lot of places to visit, making the right decisions for the days we were going to be there was important to us. Colonial Williamsburg was one of our top priorities. It was amazing! Make sure to plan ahead. We only purchased one day tickets as that included the governor's house and other tours. This ticket will also... More

Welcome to the time machine that transports you back to Virginia's colonial capital, to immerse yourself in the world of the 18th century in the years just before the American Revoluntary War with England. Buy your tickets at the Visitors Center -- the best bargain by far is the multiple 3-day pass -- and then take a short shuttle ride... More

Rainy Sunday, but great stop at the Cheese Shop. Great value for your money. Good wines by the glass, and cheese plates are easily shared.

We come here periodically and it never disappointments. I was pleased to see they are working on painting and restoring the buildings. We also enjoyed some new historic interpreters and activities. It is clear they are trying to make it easier to find your way to attractions. This summer there will be more kids activities and more family friendly venues.... More

First day here! Regrouping will see what it's like tomorrow and the rest of the week! It's been raining so outdoor activities are limited.

The Governors Palace was definitely the highlight for our family as it was the first stop we made and so 'grand.' The gardens were quite pretty too. A lot of photo opps. The rest of the town was interesting in particular the Wythe House and the old Gaol (jail). We enjoyed just walking around looking at individuals dressed in colonial... More

We spent a week at the Revolutionary City, amidst the spring breakers and school groups - not an ideal time to come if you don't have children. However, we still saw new things and learned about a new $40M art gallery expansion, and the building of a porch on the front of the Raleigh Tavern. There is so much to... More

Colonial Williamsburg is a very fascinating living museum. The story of the reconstruction of this town, alone, was fun to learn about, however, there are many, many interesting stories to discover there. Many of the US founding fathers resided in the town. I learned things I never knew and I am a lover of US history! I only had a... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the living museum. Plenty to do for all ages. Our kids (9,9,11) enjoyed interacting with the cast members. Great family fun.
