The Yorktown Battlefield and the Visitors Center are both an excellent way to see and understand our history better. The auto tour of the battlefield was interesting and you can stop and see as much or as little as you choose.

We began by watching the film in the visitors' center. We had a copy of the car tour CD and enjoyed following through the battlefield narrative. Because of the extreme heat the afternoon we started, we decided to do just a quick drive though without...More

This was the battle that birthed the nation! Visitor center is the perfect size, not overwhelming; very manageable. The movie is great. Walking and driving the battlefields requires imagination, but I loved it. Come here and honour the men who died for your freedom!

I wouldn't recommend it. Because of the size of the roads and the twists and turns, it would be cumbersome. It would be much easier without pulling an RV.

Do you suggest we buy tickets ahead? How many people do you expect? Where do you suggest we look for accomodations?

My dad is over 60 and he was offered a lifetime pass for 10 dollars and is good for all national parks. We were there on a Wednesday and had the park to ourselves. They offer an audio tour so you can move at your own pace.
