We walked around the first day, without going in the buildings, and enjoyed the restaurants. The second day, we paid for everyone and went back to the buildings that looked the most interesting. We loved the apothecary!!!!!!

Enjoyed the personal experiences with the craftsman. The 5pm skirmish was entertaining. The old mental hospital was especially interesting. We needed more time

It's been a long time since we visited Williamsburg. This place never disappoints as there are plenty of things to do and see. Very kid and dog friendly too.
