Williamsburg (USA) ... located on the Virginia Peninsula in the Hampton Roads region in southeastern Virginia. It is bordered by James City County and York County, and is an independent city. The Bureau of Economic Analysis combines the city of Williamsburg with James City County for statistical purposes. The Historic Triangle of Virginia, which also includes Jamestown and Yorktown, is among the most popular tourist destinations in the world, with Williamsburg is located in the center. The three are linked by the National Park Service's bucolic Colonial Parkway, a 23 mile-long (37 km) National Scenic Byway which is carefully shielded from views of commercial development. The toll-free Jamestown Ferry is located at the southern end of the Colonial Parkway, State Route 5, another scenic byway, links Williamsburg and Richmond).
Newest Review: ... like we did the day we visited. You buy the tickets from the Visitor's Center near the Colonial Parkway and I believe our ticket was for the historical triangle and included Jamestown and Yorktown as well but as I didn't do the paying I am a bit hazy on the costs and tickets. While at the Visitor Centre you can see a short film, "The Story of a Patriot", which was tells the story ... more

Colonial Williamsburg A couple of years ago we took my daughter and her partner to the USA with us and visited many sites in Virginia before driving on to Tennessee. My daughter is mad keen on American history and so Virginia was perfect as it was here where the first colonists settled in Jamestown, where the declaration of Independence was made and also where significant Civil war battles too place and where peace was signed so a lot of places of great significance in US history to be found. Colonial Williamsburg is a living-history museum based on the historic district of the city of Williamsburg, Virginia, USA. This is a pretty big site ... Read the complete review

Williamsburg, or Colonial Williamsburg, is a living museum based on an old English colony. There are lots of activities to attend and things to see, as well as many performances and tours given throughout the day which are entertaining as well as educational. There are a large number of original shops, non chain, within the town center of colonial Williamsburg including an old style candy (sweetie) shop, a Christmas shop and a number of toy and clothing shops. There are also a number of shops based on the kind of shop that would have been available to the colonists that sell a range of unusual products such as spices, quills and candles. Colonial Williamsburg is ... Read the complete review

Williamsburg, Virginia started as a very small town. And in a way, it still is a small town. It has a distinction for being the earliest settlement in America, which in American terms make it old. To the rest of the world, it must seem pretty young. However, old or young, it holds a lot of history. Our founding fathers lived, worked and went to school here. Pocahontas was from here. Anheiser Busch makes most of their beer here. So for a small town, there is a lot going on there. If you are considering coming to visit Williamsburg, there is a wide variety of things to do while you are there. There is Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, Yorktown, Water Country ...

Williamsburg, or more correctly, Colonial Williamsburg (Williamsburg itself is a modern city) is on a very busy peninsula on the south side of Chesapeake Bay. From the north, you approach this (over and under) the Chesapeake Bay Causeway and Tunnel. Driving on the causeway is the oddest sensation, you feel as though you are driving on a boat the water surface is so close! The Peninsula itself is stiff with history from the first settlement at Jamestown to the place where the Brits finally threw in the towel and ended the War of Independance. There are also Civil War sites and, maybe the best of all, old plantations, to visit. Being the USA, they do ... Read the complete review

If you are going to Virginia on holiday - try to visit Williamsburg. Here is re-created an American town at the time of the American revolution. The town comprises a number of houses, mansions and other building of that age or looking like they came from that age. It isn't like Bath, Edinburgh etc - but don't let this worry you. Nothing was originally located there - but hey this is the US - many plantation houses of the C18 now have air con !! You arrive at Williamsburg and after parking your vehicle in the large car park (there are a number) - proceed to a huge Visitors Centre. Here you can buy what is called a Patriot Pass - which allows you ... Read the complete review
