There is a lot of free stuff to do here without buying a ticket. The church is free. The stores are free, the garden is free, and the market is free. Enjoy the free stuff.

We came to Williamsburg and was so excited to go to Colonial Williamsburg. We got a late start so decided we would just go and check out Merchant Square and walk around. We are glad that we did not purchase a ticket to Colonial Williamsburg....More
