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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown Settlement. For shopping fun, head to Carytown or Williamsburg Premium Outlets. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Williamsburg: Cape Charles Beach (in Cape Charles), St. Luke's Historic Church & Museum (in Smithfield) and Richmond (Hollywood Cemetery, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, &more). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 23rd (Mon) at Water Country USA. And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Governor's Palace, look for gifts at Yankee Candle Company, get engrossed in the history at Historic Jamestowne, and explore the world behind art at Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum.

For photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Williamsburg trip planner.

In September, daily temperatures in Williamsburg can reach 84°F, while at night they dip to 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
