Virginia Colonial Williamsburg Visitor Center

Added by Alex Anderson

Visit the location where it all started for our great nation! Great Food, Beer and Reenactments! 

Williamsburg, Virginia , founded in 1632, is one of the oldest cities in America. The city has played major roles in American history as the capital of Virginia and as a political center for the American Revolution. Today the city offers an abundance of museums,beautiful bed and breakfasts, and live reenactments. The city is considered a living history museum, with active role players in colonial attire. The actors tend to beautiful gardens, fire colonial weapons, perform blacksmith work and provide a wealth of knowledge. You can walk around the city for hours, or go for a colonial horse carriage ride. The city is fun for the entire family to learn about our nations history before, during and after the American Revolution. The kids will love to pet the animals and watch the soldiers fire their muskets. The city also offers great hotels or a authentic colonial B&B for that romantic weekend with your significant other. The modern section of Williamsburg has endless shops, and restaurants. The entire city is covered in beautiful gardens, cobblestone streets and red brick homes. After you work up a hunger, head down to the DoG Street Pub. This Gastropub offers over a hundred different craft beers from all over the world and the food is amazing. Try the Ploughman's lunch to start!

How to Get There

Winter

Winter is the best time to visit and photograph Colonial Williamsburg. The interpreters are generally off in January and the streets are free of tourists.
