Welcome to Williamsburg, VA

Perhaps no other region in Virginia contains more variety and options for the traveler than its southeastern coastline. Colonial Williamsburg has evoked the days of America's forefathers since its restoration began during the 1920s. Jamestown and Yorktown make the area one of the most historically significant in the United States. When it's time for pure recreation, you can head to theme parks, such as Busch Gardens Williamsburg and resort areas, including Virginia Beach. - Copyright © 2014 by Fodor’s Travel, a division of Random House, LLC.
