Williamsburg is know to be part of the Historic Triangle, the communities of Jamestown, Williamsburg and Yorktown. Take a step back in time when you visit Colonial Williamsburg. Located midway between Richmond and Norfolk, Virginia (take I-63 to exit 238), this historic village has changed little from the time of our founding fathers. The capital of the colony of Virginia from 1699 to 1780, Williamsburg was rebuilt in the 1920's. It is a living, working and almost perfect respresentation of the largest outdoor history museum. More than five hundred homes have been kept intact and restored. Many of the breeds of animals can trace their own lineage to the eighteenth century.
The town surrounds the one-mile stretch of Duke of Gloucester Street, Williamsburg brings back the colonial life that represents our simple beginings. You'll find hundreds of wonderful individuals and some dressed in period outfits that are friendly and willing to share the history of our wonderful past.

We made this our last stop. We were very happy in what we were able to see.
