Tours are one of the best ways to introduce yourself to the city. Once you take one, you'll have a better idea of what you'd like to explore a bit deeper. We recommend visiting Colonial Williamsburg's art museums, witnessing a couple of the historic trades, and ending your day with an evening program.
The United States' first president never permanently lived in Williamsburg, but he did visit! After becoming a member of the House of Burgesses, Washington started to frequently visit the city. Taking Colonial Williamsburg tours is an easy way to get acquainted with Washington's Williamsburg.
You can walk around Colonial Williamsburg for free! However, we recommend buying either a ticket or a pass in order to see trade sites, museums, and important historical buildings like the Governor’s Palace, and purchasing Action Tour Guide’s Self-Guided Colonial Williamsburg Tour to be led straight to the city’s top destinations. Colonial Williamsburg offers different options for tickets and passes in order to suit your vacation needs.
