Williamsburg is perhaps the most popular living museum in the world, with millions of visitors each year to its functioning colonial village. Since Colonial Williamsburg is such a well-known tourist destination there are plenty of hotels and motels in the area to suit every type of traveler. A few of these charming accommodations are housed in old plantation homes and other historic buildings, adding to the colonial theme of a Williamsburg vacation.

The historic area of town is located at Williamsburg's center, and this is where visitors will find nearly all of the most notable colonial buildings. Williamsburg is not without its share of large chain restaurants and accommodations, however, and most of these can be found on Richmond Road. Reservations to these and other accommodations can be booked online with relative ease.

Among the colonial buildings in the central historic district, visitors will find many homes, taverns, shops, and public halls dating back to the 1700s. Local restaurants here serve authentic colonial cuisine and working residents of the town dress in carefully detailed attire appropriate to the era. The College of William and Mary is located on the edge of Colonial Williamsburg, and boasts the second-oldest college campus in the country. Admission to many of its buildings is free.

Williamsburg is also home to other attractions that can serve as a distraction from the constant history lesson of the colonial village. Busch Gardens and Water Country USA are both located here, and single tickets can be purchased for both parks. The Internet will serve as a valuable tool when planning a Williamsburg vacation. Since there is so much to do here, it's a good idea to check out the proximity of hotels and motels to desired attractions, shopping, and dining venues.
