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.
Escape the urban bustle at Cape Charles Beach and Carova Beach. Explore hidden gems such as Pamplin Historical Park and Historic St. Luke's Church Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Shirley Plantation (in Charles City), Blandford Church and Cemetery (in Petersburg) and Historic Christ Church (in Irvington). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Yorktown Beach, get engrossed in the history at Stratford Hall, steep yourself in history at Jamestown Settlement, and immerse yourself in nature at Westmoreland State Park.

For more things to do, traveler tips, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Williamsburg trip itinerary planner.

Expect a daytime high around 92°F in July, and nighttime lows around 74°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
