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.
Get some historical perspective at Historic Jamestowne and Colonial Williamsburg. Museum-lovers will appreciate Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and The Mariners' Museum & Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Williamsburg: Hollywood Cemetery (in Richmond), Eastern Shore of Virginia National Wildlife Refuge (in Cape Charles) and St. Luke's Historic Church & Museum (in Smithfield). The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Jamestown Settlement, view the masterpieces at Williamsburg Art Gallery, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Bruton Parish Episcopal Church, and take in the history at Yorktown Battlefield.

For more things to do, maps, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Williamsburg trip itinerary planner.

In July in Williamsburg, expect temperatures between 91°F during the day and 73°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
