We did the CD guided tour due to our group having a person with mobility issues. The CD was great and we were able to find all of the sites. The info provided was great and we really enjoyed it.

I really cannot do justice to this place by trying to review it. Recognizing that Yorktown is literally the area that our nation began and grew from is beyond words. So many "dots" are connected as you explore the site and take in the information...More

This is a site full of history, but if you don't get that insight, you'll miss out. Pre-read, watch the film, bring a historyphile or take a tour. The landscape and will come alive. The visitors center is a nice set up with a good...More

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.
