Williamsburg, Virginia for Toddlers & Pre-K
Know Before You GoPrinter-Friendly Version
- At a Glance
The historic triangle of Virginia towns is perhaps one of the most rich vacation experiences for the American family, packed with history, culture, and outdoor fun that truly transports kids back in time for a firsthand experience of early settlers and colonial American life. Donning a three-pointed hat or a mob cap, children will become fully engaged with the interpreters of Williamsburg's historic district, gladly jumping into everyday chores, imagining life on the brink of revolution, and escaping into the simple games of the time. A visit to the battlefield at Yorktown is the chance to imagine Cornwallis' surrender to Washington, while the Indian village and excellent museum at the Jamestown Settlement reveal the stories behind the first English contact in Virginia. Virginia's historic triangle should top every family's list of must-visit destinations.
