You have to drive through or around this campus to go to Colonial Williamsburg. All the buildings are brick and the grounds are just manicured so nice. Students are lucky to attend this prestigious college.

I, too, would recommend you go to their web site. We visited during the summer, and the College offered tours and reenactments through the Williamsburg Foundation.
