Come and see some of the earliest surviving homes in Virginia when you visit the James River Plantations, and don’t miss out on visiting Yorktown and Jamestown, the neighboring towns that form the famous historical triangle.
Family Fun
If you’re looking for some good old family fun in Williamsburg attractions, be sure to visit Busch Gardens, a fantastic park that boasts two of the top ten roller coasters in the US, as well as gorgeous lands and themed villages. Enjoy the three electrifying fast lane tracks at Go-Karts Plus, where you can also find a mini-golf course, Bumper Boats, Bumper Cars and Kiddie Land. Don’t miss out on the wet adventure at Water Country USA, the largest water park on the east coast! Get your history lesson in while you enjoy yourselves at President’s Park, Williamsburg’s newest exceptional attraction.
Tip: Busch Gardens is busiest on Saturdays and so lines are the longest. Enjoy yourself most during the week if you have that chance.
Most Famous
Tourists pour in to the city to visit what’s called Colonial Williamsburg. One of the Williamsburg attractions that is considered the most popular, this town is a reconstructed version of place as it was during the 18th century, displaying 88 refurbished original buildings, as well as a total of 400 reconstructions formed through documentation. Not only does it look colonial, visitors will discover every aspect of colonial life including hardships and triumphs through the re-enactment of colonial lifestyle. The history doesn’t end there. The historic Williamsburg attractions are only one point of the famous historical triangle. Yorktown and Jamestown are nearby towns where you can experience even more colonial attractions! All three towns are living museums that take you back to the past and let you explore the trials and tribulations faced by the first European settlers, Native Americans, and the African Americans who were brought involuntarily.
Plantations
When making your way down the list of Williamsburg attractions, be sure to include some of the James River Plantations in your schedule. Go to Bacon’s Castle to find one of Virginia’s earliest surviving homes built in 1655. Learn the fascinating history and explore the antique filled home that was built in a way that is nearly extinct. Come out to Piney Grove at Southall’s Plantation to see this National Register Landmark. Sherwood Forest was home to President John Tyler, and is known as one of the longest framed houses in America.
