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.
You'll get in some beach time at Cape Charles Beach and Yorktown Beach. Get some historical perspective at Colonial Williamsburg and Governor's Palace. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Williamsburg: Cape Charles (Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel & Eastern Shore of Virginia National Wildlife Refuge) and Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (in Richmond). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Historic Jamestowne, take a memorable drive along Colonial Parkway, explore the world behind art at Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum, and take in the history at Yorktown Battlefield.

To find maps and tourist information, read our Williamsburg day trip planning website.

In July in Williamsburg, expect temperatures between 91°F during the day and 73°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
