Virginia is a history buff’s dream destination, with seemingly endless opportunities to learn more about the country’s beginning. Settled on the east coast of the state is Williamsburg, a 170-acre historic town that has been restored to its original English condition. Colonial plantations, historical landmarks and interpretive sites provide a glimpse into the birth of the nation. In Williamsburg, you have an invitation to explore the past through the ancestral homes of the Native Americans and discover the significant colonization of the first English settlements of the "New World."
