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 cultural insight at Carytown and Governor's Palace. Take a break from the city and head to Cape Charles Beach and Colonial National Historic Park. Explore Williamsburg's surroundings by going to Kings Dominion (in Doswell), The Noland Trail (in Newport News) and Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (in Richmond). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 15th (Sat) at Water Country USA. There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Colonial Williamsburg, explore the galleries of American Revolution Museum at Yorktown, stop by Yankee Candle Company, and cruise along Colonial Parkway.

In June, daytime highs in Williamsburg are 87°F, while nighttime lows are 68°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
