Colonial Williamsburg offers Engaging Look at History

May 14, 2010

Williamsburg VA is a vacation destination filled with a great mix of historic activities and modern charm.

When planning a vacation in Williamsburg, you’ll find it’s easy to have fun with history as the area boasts the Historic Triangle, featuring Williamsburg, Yorktown and Jamestown, all of which explore the rich history of eastern Virginia.

During my visit, I spent time at Colonial Williamsburg, the world’s largest living history museum. Stepping foot on the 301 acre historic area was like taking a step back in time. The restored and reconstructed buildings created a realistic 18th century atmosphere, and the costumed interpreters were very engaging and informative.

My afternoon at Colonial Williamsburg was highlighted by the “Revolutionary City” segment, during which I was able to witness “A Declaration of Independence,” “The Town is Taken – featuring Benedict Arnold,” and “On to Yorktown & Victory,” a stirring piece in which there is a review with fifes, drums and cannons.

Watching history come to life at Colonial Williamsburg was an exciting excursion and one that I won’t soon forget. It was a great addition to my Williamsburg vacation.

Williamsburg hosts a variety of daily activities, all of which are listed online and in free activity pamphlets available throughout the city.
