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.
Governor's Palace and Historic Jamestowne are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Relax by the water at Cape Charles Beach and Yorktown Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Williamsburg: St. Luke's Historic Church & Museum (in Smithfield), Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (in Richmond) and Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel (in Cape Charles). Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at Jamestown Settlement, take in the history at American Revolution Museum at Yorktown, explore the galleries of The Mariners' Museum & Park, and pause for some serene contemplation at Bruton Parish Episcopal Church.

To see reviews, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Williamsburg travel planner .

In September in Williamsburg, expect temperatures between 84°F during the day and 66°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
