Founded in 1632 as a fortified settlement on the high ground between two rivers, Williamsburg served as a colonial capital of Virginia for over 80 years.
Venture out of the city with trips to Kings Dominion (in Doswell), Smithfield (Smithfield Farmers Market & Historic St. Luke's Church) and Shirley Plantation (in Charles City). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 14th (Sat) at Water Country USA. There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Jamestown Settlement, take in the history at American Revolution Museum at Yorktown, take an in-depth tour of Colonial Williamsburg, and admire all the interesting features of College of William & Mary.

For more things to do, maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read Williamsburg sightseeing planner.

Expect a daytime high around 91°F in July, and nighttime lows around 73°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
