This was our second trip to Colonial Williamsburg. We were able to see everything and experience all of the tradespeople doing their work. Highly recommend that you schedule two days within the Settlement.

I love winter in Williamsburg. The streets are quieter and you can get a real feel for the colonial era that is sometimes lost in the summertime crowds. Dress for the temperatures and you'll have a blast!
