    I go every year, and stay in the colonial houses. - wonderful step back in time to the 18th century. Love the taverns and trade shops as well as historic homes, and best of all, the music programs.

    I recommend going with plenty of time to walk around and explore. That way you can poke through the shops and get swept up in the re-enactments and demonstrations.

    So much to do...almost need about two days or so if you want to see everything. So much history to be learned.

    Fun and informative. I did find that sometimes the commercialization overshadowed the historical correctness. However, most of the interpreters were nice, helpful, and balanced 2013 and 1776 well.

    All things 18th century are re-enacted here to entertaining effect, but the most hands on fun can be had with the bricklayer, the wig maker, or at the evening dances. - Green Guide Editor

    Fun, but pricey. You can park at Merchants Square (lots of yummy food!) and walk through C.Williamsburg without paying the entrance fee, though you won't be able to enter the homes/buildings.

    A picturesque version of living history. Buying a Patriot Pass allows access to points of interest like the Governor's Mansion, strolling the streets and shops is informative as well.
