Having visited over many decades, this was a return trip with two granddaughters, now 9 & 11 who were here two years ago. They knew they wanted to visit the palace, the wig maker, and the Milliner for sure. It is good to take the...More

This was the second trip my family has made here. Both times we were able to spread our visit out over a few days. The package deals offered by our hotel made it a good value. Looking at the pricing separately, it seems kinda expensive....More

A great place to follow history and to walk around. There are several period correct restaurants that can put you back in time. Allow at least half a day to get the most of it. The meals can be expensive but they will be unforgetable.

I have been visiting Colonial Willamsburg since 1964. Every year That I return I find something new to learn. Whether you visit the palace, capital building, Barret Hall, eat at a tavern or take a carriage ride there is something for everyone here.

Loved this historical park. As a history teacher, I loved every moment of walking the streets of historical Williamsburg. I loved how people are in character in all of the shops and streets. You feel like you stepped back in time...

First a tip: If you visit Yorktown know that if you visit Jamestowne you can get half off your entrance fee to Jamestowne. I was here on a Sunday in June and I think that's a regular deal, nothing special going on. But check for...More
