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.
Head to Carytown and Yankee Candle Companyfor some retail therapy. Visit Historic Jamestowne and Jamestown Settlement for their historical value. Get out of town with these interesting Williamsburg side-trips: Richmond (Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Hollywood Cemetery, & more) and St. Luke's Historic Church & Museum (in Smithfield). There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Governor's Palace, get some fabulous bargains at Williamsburg Premium Outlets, make a trip to Colonial Williamsburg, and take an in-depth tour of American Revolution Museum at Yorktown.
