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 Bassett Hall will appeal to history buffs. Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum and Colonial Williamsburg are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Williamsburg: Richmond (Carytown & Virginia Museum of Fine Arts), Cape Charles Beach (in Cape Charles) and Berkeley Plantation (in Charles City). There's much more to do: do a tasting at Williamsburg Winery, take an in-depth tour of York County Historical Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at Bruton Parish Episcopal Church, and visit a coastal fixture at Old Point Comfort Lighthouse.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, read Williamsburg road trip website .

In August, daytime highs in Williamsburg are 89°F, while nighttime lows are 70°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
