Always enjoy visiting the historic Williamsburg area! Place was very hot the week of July 9th! There were buildings that had air conditioning and was greatly appreciated! If going there during the summer, take water for hydration!

We spent 7 hours there on a day when the heat index reached 108 and it was just the right amount of time for us. Many of the open buildings have tours, so we found that we often had to wait 10 minutes for the...More
