While I enjoyed the bit of history it is quite boring to most, especially young children and teenagers. Older people will like it!

Everything about Williamsburg is charming. The ambiance, open spaces, history, architecture, actors, crafts, shops, merchandise, the Bruton Parish church, the gardens, re-enactments, and more. Benches to sit and rest and people watch, small streets to wander, great food to eat. It doesn't get any better...More

We visited in late April. The weather was nice for walking around outside. Different shops and places are open on different days so if you stay a few days you can see something new every day. I especially recommend the history maker talks that they...More

Free to just walk around and enjoy people watching; or you can pay to have access to tours of most popular buildings.

This town is the recreation of ye olde Colonial Williamsburg. Every building is a functioning store, shoppe, or tavern complete w people in period clothing and in character. The silversmith is actually producing silver products by hand while you walk through that you can buy...More

One of those places that teaches at every step. Yes, it is big and requires considerable walking. The building tours are important and well worth the time and possible wait. It is a fun place to wander. I loved the decorative arts museum and the...More

Semi-authentic (most of the buildings are restored), but if you purchase a day-long ticket (or optional 2 or 3-day ticket), it's a bit more affordable and worthwhile. The "hosts" at each building or venue do a decent job of trying to re-create the early days...More

Our remembrance from 20 years ago was that it was easy to walk into the various "homes" and "shops" and "taverns" to witness life in the 1700's as portrayed by the actors at Colonial Williamsburg. With this visit we found that we had to wait...More
