United States Virginia


Historic colonial town in VA, known for its living-history museum and as part of the Historic Triangle with Jamestown and Yorktown.

Tips from the community

Gather on the Duke of Gloucester Street in Colonial Williamsburg, the largest outdoor educational living museum in the U.S., to listen to readings of the Declaration of Independence from the courthouse steps and enjoy live musical performances. Finish the day with the Lights of Freedom fireworks display, which illuminates the skies over the 18th-century community. Visitors riding Colonial Williamsburg shuttle buses must wear face masks.

Founded in 1699 with a historic area restored in the 1930's with the help of the Rockefeller's, Williamsburg is a beautiful place to slow down and step back in time. With actors and historians wandering around in authentic colonial garb, to cooks and shopkeepers offering historic recipes and gifts! Take some time to talk to that "oddly dressed" person standing in front of the courthouse and you may learn a thing or two!

Together with Jamestown and Yorktown, Williamsburg is part of the historic triangle - the stomping grounds for America's OGs. At its center, Historic Williamsburg is the place to see living museum, with real actors depicting scenes from the American Revolution.
