    If you just want to walk around and not see inside all of the exhibits, you don't have to buy a ticket.

    You don't need to take the bus into the colonial area, there's a walking bridge/path. Look down while you walk, there are cool historical tidbits embedded in the concrete!

    $42 for a 1-day adult admission?! Most of the historic areas and buildings in Williamsburg are open to the public without an admission ticket. Save yourself the money and support the local merchants.

    My family loves Colonial Williamsburg; we've been coming since I was little. The tours are different each time we visit, and all of the workers are well-informed. Highly rec the refillable mugs!

    Tickets totally worth it. pay attention to the schedule- lots of shops will close throughout the day due to staffing needs so if there is something special you want to see/ tour, make sure you go!

    Visitors Center worth a trip - fab buys on hand made soaps and powders - sustainably produced and packaged!

    Make sure you see the movies before hoping on the shuttle bus. It's a good foundation for what you're about to see, and in our case, it really helped to get the kids hooked.

    Worth every penny. Spend a week; you won't see it all.

    Teachers be sure to bring your id for a 50% discount on tickets!

  • Heather N.

    this place was great agreed with prior tips needs 2 days to go through everything but definitely a great place and very educational on how things were in the past

    Heather N. · May 9, 2013
  • Cory H.

    Tickets are consecutive. Not separate days. The didn't tell us until after we purchased

    Cory H. · March 31, 2013
  • Taylor S.

    Buying a ticket is the only way to experience all the place has to offer. You could walk the streets for free & see a bunch of buildings & miss 95% of what makes the place the key history site it is.
