Immerse Yourself in History

It’s impossible to experience all of Williamsburg in a single visit. Popular attractions include Busch Gardens®, Great Wolf Lodge, and renowned art museums.

But the most appealing draw is Virginia’s historic triangle: the first settlement at Jamestown, the Yorktown Battlefield, and Colonial Williamsburg.

Colonial Williamsburg is the nation's largest living history museum. The entire town stays in character 24 hours a day — children at play, farm families, marching militia, tavern folks — all encouraging you to have fun immersing yourself in the 18th century lifestyle.

Williamsburg is not just for history buffs, nor is it all about the Revolution. In addition to shopkeepers and townsfolk, you’ll discover governors’ mansions, palace gardens, authentic taverns, and rare breed livestock. There’s something for everyone. Come connect to the thrill of a bygone era, where you'll meet all kinds of people dressed in authentic attire and engaged in colonial life.
