Would you like to take a step back in time? How about when there weren’t any electricity or cars? That far back? Well, you’re in luck! Williamsburg, Virginia is that kind of place.

Tips for Traveling to Williamsburg with Kids:
- Get there as early as you can, it’s almost magical to watch the town wake up.
- Plan all of your stops around the hands-on activities for kids. Our personal favorite was Powell House. We played hoops and sticks in the yard, helped break eggs in the kitchen, made decorations for their party, made traditional crafts, and played games.
- Make time to run around! Our boys loved the maze behind the palace. The farm is also hands-on.
- The colonial shops and farm are kid friendly. The people in character enjoy interacting with the kids and really make history come to life! (this is all included in your admission)
- Our Governor’s Palace tour didn’t seem to be worth the wait. You do not have to wait in line to look at the Palace’s kitchen, cellar, or maze.
- Consider purchasing their refillable mug. You can refill them with coffee, soda, and frozen treats (in the summer).
- Let your kids lead the way with the kid-friendly map from the Visitor’s Center. Children are welcome to wear costumes and even carry the wooden rifles.
