The small Virginia town of Williamsburg only has about 15,000 residents. Its United States history starts in 1632, and it was Virginia Colony's capital between 1699 and 1780. Today, Williamsburg's main tourist draw is Colonial Williamsburg, the city's living history museum. It recreates 18th century history through faithful building restorations and costumed employees who behave as though they're from another time. More from this guide...

When to Visit Williamsburg, Virginia

Williamsburg is beautiful in every season, and no matter when you visit you'll experience many fun historical activities. That being said, Williamsburg's peak season is summer when kids are out of school. If you do need to visit in summer, aim for June when the weather isn't as scorching. Fall is gorgeous in Virginia, and if you visit in October you'll catch some lovely fall foliage. Crowds won't be at summertime levels, but other foliage hunters may cause a bump in tourism. Winter will have the lowest hotel rates, and if you can stand chillier temperatures, just imagine how lovely Colonial Williamsburg looks under pure white snow.
