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.
Step out of the city life by going to Colonial National Historic Park and Cape Charles Beach. Visit Historic Jamestowne and Colonial Williamsburg for their historical value. Explore Williamsburg's surroundings by going to The Noland Trail (in Newport News), Richmond (Shockoe Bottom Clay, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, & more) and St. Luke's Historic Church & Museum (in Smithfield). There's much more to do: cruise along Colonial Parkway, contemplate the long history of Governor's Palace, take in the history at Yorktown Battlefield, and learn about winemaking at Saude Creek Vineyards.
