    What to Expect
    Admission to all of Colonial Williamsburg’s historic sites, trade shops and art museums, with complimentary shuttle service and parking, are included in your voucher. 
    A day at Colonial Williamsburg begins at the Regional Visitor Center. Find the latest information on current activities and events and plan your visit to this renowned historical city. Watch the film Williamsburg—the Story of a Patriot for an introduction to the history of Williamsburg.
    From here, it’s a short walk across the pedestrian bridge to life in the 18th century. Colonial Williamsburg covers more than 300 acres, with 88 original 18th-century buildings, plus hundreds of homes, stores and public buildings that have been rebuilt on their original foundations. Meet the townspeople, tradespeople, shopkeepers, political figures, women and the enslaved who call Williamsburg home. Learn about their hopes, struggles and fears in these uncertain times. 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.
    Hungry? Enjoy a mixture of restaurants, bars, lounges and cafés, for a historically inspired family meal or an intimate evening of creative cuisine. There are also more than 20 unique stores for the perfect gift, souvenir or addition to any home.

    So much to do in one day. We really enjoyed this trip and my younger son and I went on a ghost tour and learned so much history. Next time we go we will definitely visit more than just 1 day here.

    I suggest the 3-day pass to Colonial Williamsburg because it will take you at least that long if you want to see everything. Some of the tours are not given every day - especially on Monday and Tuesday. So I suggest that... More
