Williamsburg General: 49 reviews and 51 photos

Favorite thing: Whenever you have time/vacation and... enough budget. Well, if you can choose I would consider two factors: weather and possible crowds. Both are not at all predictable.

But I would skip both hot summer and rainy/sometimes freezing and rarely snowy winter.
I would choose either spring with blowing flowers (April - early June) or fall (October or November). In the middle of October I amazed pretty fall colours of leaves although it was 1-2 weeks before the peak of fall colours.

I would expect more crowds and avoid Williamsburg during weekends, holidays and especially during American long weekends close to the following national holidays:
- Memorial Day (last Monday of May),
- Independence Day (July, 4),
- Labour Day (first Monday of September))
- Thanksgiving Day (4th Thursday of November).
