Review of Williamsburg, Virginia

Wonderful, warm Williamsburg
Star Rating - 9/4/2008
Few places combine the cultural and historical aspects of Williamsburg, Virginia. The past meets the present in a place where America travelled from the frontier days of Jamestown in 1607, through the American Revolution and on to the Civil War. Restored Colonial Williamsburg recreates town life and, together with nearby Yorktown and Jamestown, help vistors and residents revisit and remember our national roots. The presence of one of the top small colleges in the country in William and Mary brings the vibrancy of young ideas and contemporary cultural life to blend with the old. Families flourish in the mild Virginia climate and enjoy the proximity to Virginia and North Carolina beaches, Blue Ridge mountains and urban attractions of Norfolk, Richmond and Washington, D.C. all within 1-3 hours driving time.
