Walk down the one mile Duke of Gloucester street and stop at the many different tradesmen's shops. You can walk around Colonial Williamsburg for free, but to visit the shops and learn about their trades you will need to purchase a ticket. It's best to view the film at the visitor's center before going to the village. Parking at Colonial... More

I had the honor of visiting Colonial Williamsburg for a week. I was able to visit all of the shops and observe the interpreters perform different skills, my favorite was wig making. The taverns provide great food and service. One can also participate in the evening walking tours that take visitors inside some of the buildings. They offer court sessions... More

It was just nice to take a step back into history and to also see the staff, dressed up in colonial times. It made you think about how it was back then to how it is now. It makes you appreciate what you have, where your are and not to take life for granted.

Colonial Williamsburg has new and different events every season. I've lived in Williamsburg since 1987 and still enjoy going to CW for the many event they have. Chownings is my favorite!

A great day out with something for all the family. Things to see, hear, taste and buy. Character actors give the place an authenticity that is both charmin and endearing.

Williamsburg is my happy place! You will want to bring the kids here and walk back into time. Go into each building and listen to the stories. Stop outside and sit down and let Thomas Jefferson tell you a little about himself and answer your questions. But when the drums and fife corps come down the street be ready to... More

Colonial Williamsburg is an area that has recreated the streets of Williamsburg as they were back in Colonial Times- You can see and enjoy much of it without purchasing passes, but the passes will give you an insight into the daily lives of the citizens and how they survived- things like the blacksmith- armory-bookmaker etc can all be accessed with...

A must for history lovers! I just came to know that the "origin" of Thomas Jefferson is here - George Wythe! Go see his residence for yourself. It may remind you of Monticello. We visited this place in February 2017, so there was only a restaurant open, next to the Courthouse. We went to the Merchant Square to refill our... More

Fun trip, lots to see. Takes you back to a time long since faded...My son, both his grandparents and his aunt traveled throughout Colonial Williamsburg visiting the apothecary, witnesses cannon fire, sampled the local taverns grub, took a tour of the historic buildings where our government begun and was run.
