This park encompasses Yorktown Battlefield, Jamestowne Historic Site, and Civil War history! The town of Yorktown dates back to the 1600s, Plan to spend multiple days here if possible or at least one very very long day.

They've done a great job recreating the villiage. The highlight are the three ship reproducations. Tour guides are fantastic--the museum is a hidden gem.

A stroller can navigate everywhere but onto the boats. The staff is amazing and very informative and immersive. Definitely recommend

You can't visit Williamsburg without visiting the colonial national historic park. Very neat and so interesting to walk through. Lots of neat historical things to see and experience. Our children really enjoyed this trip. Yes, we will visit again someday.

Learned a lot and will go back again very soon. This is a place where you can take your time and enjoy the demonstrations, ask questions or just sit down and take in the atmosphere.

Just walk around and enjoy all the beautiful scenes and history. Great place to take kids to learn about how it was to live there all those years ago. Things are explained very well and just ask any questions that you might have.

Colonial Williamsburg is NOT (repeat NOT) part of the NPS. They might offer a senior discount (check their website, it is not difficult to find) but the NPS senior pass is NO good at Williamsburg.

It's not super walker friendly, but it does tend towards flat areas in these locales. The road itself is flat and better than the sidewalks, which are not as even and at times fairly crowded.
