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.
Historic Jamestowne and Colonial Williamsburg are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Take a break from the city and head to Colonial Parkway and Colonial National Historical Park. Explore Williamsburg's surroundings by going to Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (in Richmond), The Noland Trail (in Newport News) and Hughlett Point Natural Area (in Reedville). There's much more to do: explore the striking landscape of Colonial National Historic Park, take in the history at American Revolution Museum at Yorktown, steep yourself in history at Jamestown Settlement, and get a taste of the local shopping with Williamsburg Art Gallery.

In May, daily temperatures in Williamsburg can reach 79°F, while at night they dip to 59°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 24th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
