We walked around the first day, without going in the buildings, and enjoyed the restaurants. The second day, we paid for everyone and went back to the buildings that looked the most interesting. We loved the apothecary!!!!!!

Take at least three full days to explore Colonial Williamsburg as there is so much to see and do. Begin at the Rockefeller Basset Hall and be sure to watch the film before proceeding into the house. This will give you much of the background...More

This is our 2nd trip to C.W. The first time, the kids were 10 and 12. This time, they were 12 and 14. I think these ages are perfect for the trip especially if your kids are into learning about how to make things. The...More

Enjoyed the personal experiences with the craftsman. The 5pm skirmish was entertaining. The old mental hospital was especially interesting. We needed more time

It's been a long time since we visited Williamsburg. This place never disappoints as there are plenty of things to do and see. Very kid and dog friendly too.

Stay in a nearby resort so you can walk to and from and go back to swim, rest or eat. Very friendly and knowledgeable guides, great hands on exhibits

You don’t have to buy the tickets to enjoy . You can walk the streets and enter the taverns and shops that sell goods. Not a good place for young children as there isn’t enough to keep them occupied. Clean restrooms and Coke machines can...More

Glad we made the trip. We purchased the 3 day pass. You need at least 2 days to see most of it. We visited early March so not everything was open for the season. However there was plenty to see for the days we were...More

We make it a point to go every other year. My kids are preteen but love the historic downtown area and we also hit Busch Gardens on each trip. The townspeople are extremely nice and we always have a great time.

This is a politically correct pseudo historical attraction. Aside from underpaying their employees, except for the legion if Vice Presidents they have, they treat their employees badly and the price of admission is ridiculous. They continually attempt to build a Berlin wall around the place...More
