Relive the Past With a Historical Vacation to Colonial Williamsburg
The Williamsburg, Virginia area has long been recognized as one of the most historically significant regions of the country. From the first English settlement in the colonies at Jamestown, to the Yorktown battle site, and the Colonial town of Williamsburg, the area offers a great vacation destination for those who would like to learn about America’s past during their travels.
One way to explore the past is by immersing yourself in a recreated 18th Century village. Colonial Williamsburg allows you to travel back in time where you can view residents passing by in colonial attire, and the city is restored so much that you may feel you have literally traveled through a time machine back to the 1700s.
See the first English settlement in the colonies at Jamestown, where English settlers came during 1607. You will see board replicas of the three ships that made the voyage from England and costumed performers will recreate everyday life in the 1600s to make historic Jamestown come to life. A combination of films and living history performances will help you learn about the area’s past.
Yorktown, where colonial forces fought the British army, will come alive with galleries, films, and live interpretations that will entertain and enlighten visitors. Learn about the history of the Revolutionary War as it was fought in Virginia, and take time to enjoy this informative living museum.
