This past weekend had extremely nice weather, and I happened to be in Virginia visiting a friend. We decided to go to Colonial Williamsburg, and got there around 1:00. We all got day passes 25.99 for adults and 13.99 for children, and they had a nice military discount of 50% off. Our check-in person was not as knowledgable as some... More

The moment I stepped into the visitors center, I knew this was going to be my favorite vacation spot. Not only is it surrounded with loads of places to stay and eat, but the overall experience is magical. Every employee is dressed in colonial garb and perfectly in character. Walk the streets to see live historical reenactments, or visit any... More

We went with another couple for a getaway. Decide to get the "annual" pass..w/ veterans discount, by far the best deal going.We went there for three partial days and visited everything we could.(practically all the buildings!) Very informative and well done.Not much crowding, so we got very personal tours. We've been there 5-6 times but never went into many of... More

For Colonial period history buffs this is a must see. However, CW is a place for everyone, especially the younger folks who have been missing out on receiving history/social studies in the classroom. Often that subject isn't available anymore in elementary grades due to the "teaching to the test" for math and reading. This is an incredibly important place to... More

Great day in colonial Williamsburg enjoying the unseasonable warmth. Took the winter discounted prices and spent the day meandering around the old town. Recommended visits to the governor's mansion and capital. A little disappointed that most of the old town restaurants were closed but quite a bit of choice west of old town at the market place. Check out the... More

We loved every second of this trip. My kids are 7 and 8, which I thought was the perfect age. We stayed about a mile away and drove to the visitor's center. The parking was easy and the shuttle was great! We spent an entire day in colonial Williamsburg...walking around, participating in activities, and eating lunch. It was fantastic!

There is ust so much to take in, you need more than one day to do it. Still, preparation will increase to number of activities available.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Williamsburg. It was a fun and educational experience for two of our children that are ages 15 and 9. I researched buying a pass vs. not buying a pass. Just buy the pass. Not only are you touring the property, but you are supporting the kind, knowledgeable, employees of the Foundation. Yes, you... More

Went here with our grandson for the day. Loved the interaction with the historic citizens. One of the greatest lessons was hearing Patrick Henry share about his life regarding how he started working here and the work in volved in playing the role. Then had hot chocolate with George Washington Fantastic

I grew up in the area and have been many times, and it never got old. If your a fan of history on any level this is a must see. I think it's one the biggest outdoor museum, if not the biggest. Beautiful and so much to see and experience. Williamsburg is a must visit, with Busch gardens and water... More
