Explore the challenges of daily life set against the backdrop of revolution and look for opportunities to play a role as a citizen of colonial Williamsburg.

At the Governor's Palace, enter the years immediately before the Revolution and experience the grandeur of royal government in Virginia just before its collapse. Step into the tumultuous year of 1776 at the Capitol, colonial Virginia’s seat of power. Experience the stark contrasts of freedom and slavery at the house of one of the most prominent families in Virginia at the Peyton Randolph House. Watch a blacksmith take a red-hot iron from the fire of his forge and, with hammer in hand, beat it into a variety of tools, hardware and weapons at Anderson’s Blacksmith Shop and Public Armoury.

See how and where the residents of Williamsburg made a living. Explore the buildings where revolutionary ideas were born, discussed and disputed. Get an intimate glimpse into 18th-century life with an invitation to enter local homes and gardens.

The vast amount of history in this area is beyond amazing. We did the historic triangle and it was well worth the money. We spent four full days between the 3 areas.

The Williamsburg, Yorktown and Jamestown Visitor Centers are great. The opportunity to view a film prior to visiting the exhibits gives people a good idea about what they will see and ideas about what they will look for.

This was the best thing for our trip. We got our badges at the visitor center the first day and then went to see everything. We purchased the 7 day pass which gave us entry to everything. Well worth the money.

We spent 2 days touring the exhibits and demonstrations in Colonial Williamsburg and loved it even with the rain on the first day. We had come prepared with rain gear so we were able to spend the day walking to many of the exhibits because they are in the buildings and as a result the show went on. The second day was a vacation dream with Sunny skies, mild temperatures and a light breeze and that made it perfect for one of the carriage rides with the informative driver whose demeanor fit the experience perfectly. We were able to interact with several of the artisans, craftspeople and presenters and I must complement all for the excellent presentations we were able to witness. This would be a great adult excursion or family exploration to get a feel for where the United States came from.
