My wife and I both visited when we were in grade school. We took our kids when they were young. We just revisited again after our youngest went to college. Still the same wonderful experience.

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.

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.
