While history buffs from around the world have long made Williamsburg, with its many venerable sites, a much visited destination, the city boasts a range of attractions for visitors of all ages and interests. Relive the past at Colonial Williamsburg, the largest outdoor living history museum in the United States, with almost 500 public buildings, homes, stores and taverns meticulously restored to 18th-century glory. Ask a blacksmith, dressed in period costume, about his trade or learn good manners from a school-age George Washington. For thrills, head to Water Country USA or to Busch Gardens, renowned for award-winning roller coasters like the Alpengeist and Apollo's Chariot. After a good dose of history and hair-raising rides, do some wine-tasting or pop into Shields Tavern for a pint and authentic 1700s fare, then settle in at a Colonial period inn or a modern hotel. A weekend in Williamsburg is sure to impress the whole family.
