Be Part of the Story
Discover Colonial Williamsburg and immerse yourself in the 18th-century capital city of Virginia. See all that the Revolutionary City has to offer, explore our Art Museums, or engage in recreation at our companion Resort properties. From revolution to romance, things are constantly changing here, creating a unique experience for our guests. Opportunities for adventure abound, but how you choose to spend your visit is up to you.
Become a part of the two-day saga as the city comes alive to depict the days, months, and years leading up to and during the Revolutionary War. Meet the locals—townspeople, tradespeople, shopkeepers, political figures, women, and slaves—and learn of their hopes, struggles, and fears in these uncertain times.
Step into a historic tavern and transport your tastebuds back in time. Taste a meal that patriots like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry would have enjoyed. Experience how some of America’s most illustrious figures ate and socialized, without ever leaving the 18th-century.
Rent a child’s colonial costume during your visit and become part of daily 18th-century life. Children’s costume rentals are available at WILLIAMSBURG Revolutions in the Regional Visitor Center and seasonally at the outdoor sales booths on Market Square in the Revolutionary City.
We’ve made it easy to plan your evenings with Live after 5 events. Enjoy lively, engaging performances nightly. Take a ghost tour, attend a candlelit concert, or participate in a heated witch trial.
Be at the center of it all with access to endless recreational opportunities—such as golf, tennis, spa services, fitness classes, mini golf, swimming, and lawn bowling—as well as special guest-only events and opportunities.
Whatever your tastes, the Kimball Theatre is at the center of Williamsburg’s community activities. Creative programming alliances with the College of William and Mary, community organizations, and Colonial Williamsburg link our past with the present.
