About these ratings

According to many, this site is like a Disney theme park for history fanatics. Like Disney's land and world, Colonial Williamsburg's appeal isn't just for kids but also for anyone who feels young at heart.

"I honestly think Colonial Williamsburg is just as fun without kids as it is with them!" gushes one of its patrons to TripAdvisor. "Awesome place to walk around and spend a few hours in. … Lots of opportunities to ask questions, take great pictures and get a ton of exercise." This history-themed park also earns kudos for employing knowledgeable guides and maintaining pristine facilities throughout.  A Yelp.com user even notes, "The visitors center itself is filled with overpriced goodies, but I think they are worth every penny."

Colonial Williamsburg sits in the center of its succeeding city of the same name. Popular stops include the Governor's Palace, the Magazine (home of the colony's weaponry and ammunition), the old-time church, tavern and theater, and the period homes. And because there is so much to explore, you might want to consider purchasing a multi-day ticket (offered for between $42 and $46 per adult). Single-day tickets cost about $38 for adults. You also have the option to splurge for a bounce ticket, which includes entry to Colonial Williamsburg, Busch Gardens and Water Country USA for between $103 and $129. Also keep in mind the multiple-day Williamsburg Flex Ticket that allows you to visit several area attractions, including Colonial Williamsburg, for about $177. For specific information on park hours, children's ticket pricing and more, check out the official website.
