It’s hard to imagine another nation’s capital besides the opulent Washington D.C., but from 1705-1779, Colonial America’s capitol resided in Williamsburg.
Being close to Jamestowne, governing individuals moved to colonial Williamsburg and created the first representative assembly, The Virginia House of Burgesses.
This assembly was the think-tank that organized the plan to fight for our independence against Great Britain; a move that changed the course of history with the Revolutionary War.
Colonial Williamsburg is a beautiful replica of the town that once stood there.
You can purchase a pass that will allow access to all the historical buildings such as the Colonial Capital Building, but walking the grounds is free of charge.
Venture along paths of beautiful gardens, admire actors in full colonial dress, find unique souvenir shops, and get your fill with plenty of fine-dining experiences.
