Good for the whole family. A blast from the past. Really friendly characters. Lots of walking in pretty green spaces.

Always enjoy stopping in to Colonial Williamsburg. We often visit briefly and do a walking tour. On this trip, we did the Behind the Scenes Tour (about 2 hours long, sponsored by Colonial Williamsburg itself, does not also require general admission) with very knowledgeable hosts,...More

This was our first time here. We quite enjoyed visiting the various locations and had quite a good time. It was a short visit though, so we barely scratched the surface of all we would have liked to see and experience. We'll be returning soon.

If you have small children definitely get the two day pass. Between nap times and get back and forth to the hotel we did not get to go inside all the buildings that we wanted.

A great historical site that was restored/reconstructed to show life as it was in precolonial times. We have been there many times and each time we learn something different. There are docents in character who tell visitors about the house and if a tradesman demonstrate...More

Didn't see any while we were there. There are bike rentals though, which is a nice way to see the town.
