Welcome to Williamsburg

Few places in the U.S. are more historic than Williamsburg Virginia, founded in 1632 as a fortified settlement on the peninsula between the James and York rivers near the mouth of Chesapeake Bay. Named Middle Plantation, the city was the capital of the Colony of Virginia from 1699 to 1780 and played important roles in both the American Revolution and the Civil War. Eighteenth-century Colonial Williamsburg is the area’s highlight attraction. It’s the world’s largest living history museum with more than 40 exhibit sites and two world-class art museums. The Jamestown Settlement in Yorktown and the Busch Gardens amusement park are also essential stops on any Williamsburg visit.
