We are planning a week's trip to the Williamsburg area in early December and have some questions about the Historic Triangle multi-day pass.
1. If we have a NPS Golden Access Pass that gets us in to the Colonial National Historic Park, will that get us in to everything we would see or want access to with the Historic Triangle pass? We are trying to avoid paying extra for something we already have access to.
2. If we DON'T have to buy the Historic Triangle Pass, is it best to buy the Williamsburg multi-day pass online ahead of time or just get it when we get there? Any discounts available, like for seniors?
3. Can we still see the demonstrations and outdoor activities without a pass?
4. At the time we are coming (early December), if we plan to spend only 2 days (maybe 3) actually in Historic Williamsburg, is that sufficient time to see most of the places, demonstrations, etc that we might want to see? Are there limits to what is available in winter?
5. How much time would you recommend we allow for Jamestowne & Yorktowne?
6. Any further information and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Two of us are planning a trip to Williamsburg and thought it would be nice to visit DC while we were so close. Since we're both seniors with walking concerns, a guided tour would be nice. Any suggestions on reasonably priced tour operators?
IF I purchase the senior admission pass, what are the additional charges for the Governors Palace and Capitol tours?
We are going to Williamsburg Plantation and need a bus from Amtrack to this site. Is there a bus ?
I am coming from Washington DC to Williamsburg via Amtrak is Great wolf lodge accessible from Amtrak station
Are pets allowed and what are the rules regarding pets?
I am taking a group of children and teens from Chattanooga to Williamsburg for an educational fun trip. Any suggestions on fun things to do on the way?
We are planning driving tour to Virginia (2 couples) and debating where we should book hotel: in Williamsburg or Richmond. Since they are really close to each other we definitely want to visit both towns. We are talking about 2 nights. I see there are a lot of interesting things to do in the evening in Williamsburg, from the other hand - there are tons of nice restaurants in Richmond. Please help!:-)
Thanks in advance!
My family will be visiting Colonial Williamsburg this weekend. I was just wondering if there is anything they do special for birthdays? We will be celebrating a birthday on Saturday and I wanted what we could do. Also, any suggestions on a tavern we should visit on Saturday night? We have 3 young children with us so anything we do needs to be somewhat kid friendly. Any help and tips would be really appreciated! Thanks so much!
Doe anyone know of a tour bus (or other reasonably priced and quick transportation) that goes from the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area to Williamsburg, Virginia? I'm having a difficult time locating one on the internet and would appreciate any help. Thanks so much.
I'm going Camping this year in Williamsburg in August, It's down to 2 Resorts.
KOA Williamsburg or chickahominy riverfront park, I think KOA is closer to everything like Busch Gardens, etc
Koa is Expensive, chickahominy riverfront park Is cheaper but is it clean? Im not to concerned about activities, I am concerned about clean restrooms, etc. Also Does KOA have security? chickahominy riverfront park probably dont so thats a concern I guess.

Granny and 10 year old arriving/departing via Amtrak. Do not care to rent a car - perfer to walk or use public transit. Can you suggest safe, clean, but low cost hotel near both Amtrak station and Colonial Williamsburg?
Thank you -
Group of us late twentysomething/early thirty's are heading down to Williamsburg the weekend of the 24th of October. We're going to hit Howl o Scream Fri and Sat night but will leave the park Saturday night around 10pm to check out some of the nightlife in Williamsburg. We are staying at a hotel on Richmond Rd and would be awesome if i can get any advice on a 'pub crawl' for that area. Also if there are any clubs for dancing in the area, i could sure use the info thanks!
I would like all the advice I can get on what to do in Williamsburg, VA. My fiance and I are going there on our honeymoon that last week in October. I have looked at all there is to do there and I have no idea where to start. Should I buy a travel package deal or should I wait till we get there to buy tickets? Also advice on where to stay would be nice. We are wanting a nice hotel, but not too pricey. We aren't going to be in it that much so we would rather use our money on other things. But we don't want to stay in a run down place either. We thought about driving out to VA Beach one of our days and viewing all the lighthouses and attractions out there. But we are more interested in the colonial part so that's where we want to spend the majority of our trip. So any suggestions would be great.
Heather Crane/Hendrix (to be)
were planning on visiting williamsburg for 5-6 days this July. Is it better to buy the 7-4-1 ticket or buy individually
We visited your restaraunt several years ago and enjoyed the small mini corn muffins. I am unable to locate a recipe for these. Can you help?
Is it at all possible to hold a small wedding ceremony (40 people) at The Raleigh Tavern? It would be in a years time.
I'm coming to Williamsburg with a car club and we would like to get out early in the morning, drive for a while, then stop for breakfast, then drive back. Perhaps 30 miles out for the drive. Is there a great place to stop for breakfast along a route 30 miles out in either direction. Preferably a pretty ride. Maybe on the way to Yorktown, Norfolk, etc.
We could have as many as 20 or 30 descend on the resturant at one time so we need either a couple of ideas or a large place.
Can anyone suggest a real nice and clean hotel near the Williamsburg Winnery?
im keen to come and buy some embroidered stockings-can you send detailka? Best wishes
I am taking 12 high school students to Williamsburg in the spring. I am looking for a resturante with an old time theme. OR even a B&B that would hold a nice dinner for them.....any ideas would be great...
Anyone had Christmas lunch at King's Tavern? What is the general menu and serving arrangement?
My family will be spending Thanksgivign 2007 in Williamsburg and I am looking for accomodations. I will need 6-7 rooms. I would love to stay in a historical home verus a hotel chain. Any suggestions? Can I rent rooms in a plantation?
My wife and I are coming to Williamsburg next May (2007) for a week and someone told me next year was a special year for Williamsburg. Like 400th anniversary or something. If this is true do you know of any special activities going on that we might want to plan our trip around or is there a good web site to check on local activities. Thanks a lot.
Would someone know about the King William Inn (or is it the Travelodge King William?) We have reservations for next May there. We have previosly stayed at the Country Hearth Inn and Suites and have no complaints about that, the location was perfect. I would like to know about the Capital Landing Road area, is it safe? It seemed so last year. What can you tell me about the area around the King William? Any reviews would be appreciated.
Is there any where in or around Williamsburg that has live music?
Looking for discounted one day only tickets to Colonial Williamsburg for two adults. Is there such a thing?
We are going in the weekend of Oct 20 and since its Halloween time thought we would get into the spirit and go on a ghost tour. I know their a tourist trap but, it is something for the kids to do in the evening. I found two on the Internet.
1. Run by the Williamsburg organization called:
"Legends,Mysteries,Myths,and Ghosts" tour
2. Run by a Private operator called:
"Ghosts of Williamsburg" Tour
I also saw one in Yorktown. Has anyone been on any of these? Or has an opinion if one is better than the other?
