We visited Williamsburg a few years ago with my mom and when our son was 10. All of us enjoyed the trip. We stayed at the Governor's Inn which was within walking distance of the historical area and had easy access to modern shopping and restaurants. Be prepared to walk through the historical town, but also be prepared to be amazed. It really is like stepping back in time. There are scheduled events such as the witch trial which reveal specific events of the time. Our favorite things were all of the houses, gardens and industries we were able to see first hand just as they had been. Our son was able to participate in the blacksmith's daily work. We toured a carpentry shop and walked through some gardens and houses where people were cooking as they did in the 1700's. Historic Jamestown is also a short drive away and well worth visiting while you are in the area.
