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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Virginia Capitol Building and Jamestown Glasshouse. The Mariners' Museum & Park and Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Williamsburg side-trips: Seven Pines National Cemetery (in Sandston), Henricus Historical Park (in Chester) and Fredericksburg (Kenmore Plantation and Gardens, The Rising Sun Tavern, & more). There's still lots to do: gain insight at College of William & Mary, take in the spiritual surroundings of Historic Christ Church, steep yourself in history at Shirley Plantation, and immerse yourself in nature at York River State Park.
