"Colonial Williamsburg: Through the Seasons" Williamsburg Village by Rabbityama
Williamsburg Village Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 28 photos
In the wintertime, during the Christmas season, Colonial Williamsburg changes its appearance a little. The village is obviously filled with snow, but there are additions that form a new sort of beauty! First of all, they do not put up Christmas trees in Colonial Williamsburg. Instead, they create beautiful wreath-like decorations with fruits, such as apples, oranges, and pineapple, used as decorations, like ornaments, on the wreaths. The wreaths are made of pine branches, and they are placed on the doors or above the doors of many/most of the buildings in the village. Inside many of the buildings, there are also many pine and fruit decorations! They really are beautiful, and some of the designs can be very impressive!
Outside, there are torches. At night, they light these torches, so that when you walk around, you can still see. The torches add a nice touch to the already wonderful atmosphere. Because it was Christmas time, the actors/actresses gathered together with everyone there and we all sang Christmas carols near the torches.
Colonial Williamsburg is a great place to go to see and old fashioned Christmas. It really makes the Christmas season even more exciting and joyful than it already is! If you get the chance, go to Colonial Williamsburg in December! You won't be disappointed!
In the summertime, Colonial Williamsburg is a beautiful place to walk around and enjoy the atmosphere. There are many re-enactments and activities for visitors to partake in and enjoy. The actors/actresses that roam the town and work in the shops are very fun to talk to and learn from. They are very professional, so you can trust the information they give you! The tours are also a great way to learn about the history of the town, as well as America itself.
The fourth of July is a wonderful time to go to Colonial Williamsburg! Everyone is so cheerful and patriotic! The fireworks display is excellent, and watching the fireworks in the village makes it even more memorable!
If you can only go to Colonial Williamsburg once, I suggest that you go in the summertime.
