Williamsburg Tips

wburg-redcoatsYour Williamsburg Innkeepers are “locals”, and the best concierges in town. We enjoy living here and sharing this unique area with each of you, whether you are visiting for the very first time, returning after a brief visit years ago, or return annually to enjoy the many facets of Williamsburg. For more information on Williamsburg attractions, visit the area attractions page, written by the Innkeepers represented on this site.

Once you have made your reservation, your Williamsburg B&B Innkeeper will send you good directions to your chosen Bed and Breakfast (we have found MapQuest to be a bit un-reliable).

Once you arrive at the Inn and are settled in, share your touring and dining plans with the Innkeeper and ask for advice. We can help you maximize your time in the area and see the attractions that interest you the most, without feeling harried. In the morning, you might also enjoy chatting with other guests in the dining rooms and hearing of their adventures. Some area bed and breakfasts offer private seating for those who prefer to dine alone.

One of the best ways to tour this area is to follow the timeline of colonial America. We recommend you start your visit at the Jamestown Settlement, which dates to 1607 and is America’s first permanent English colony. From there, visit Colonial Williamsburg where the town portrays the exciting and formative years leading up to the Revolution, when Williamsburg was the capital city of the prosperous and influential Virginia colony. Finally, visit Yorktown where the American Revolution is chronicled and you can visit an 18th century farm and a Continental Army camp.

Plan a Trip to Willimsburg

A note about Colonial Williamsburg admission tickets — The fees collected from ticket sales continue the education and preservation of this historic treasure. There are several different admission tickets and it can be confusing to know which one to choose. We recommend the 2-day Governor’s Key to the City pass for our guests who are here for just a few days. If you are here for more nights, or think you would like to return again within the year following your visit, then the Freedom Pass or Independence Pass is a good value. We do recommend many of the Colonial Williamsburg evening programs, especially “Cry Witch”. It is best to book this event prior to your visit as it fills up quickly 800-HISTORY.

For a break from history, you will find there are many more things to do and see in the Williamsburg area including amusement parks, shopping, plantations, winery tours, museums, golf and so much more. We have the maps and the recommendations to tailor your visit just for you.
