With Each Season Comes New and Exciting Experiences

SPRING

Spring is the season of new life and new growth. Lambs are born and the historic gardens are in bloom. A new Nation Builder, George Mason, is making his debut in the Historic Area and discussing his role in writing Virginia's Declaration of Rights. After much research and an archaeological dig, the Carpenters will begin construction of a porch at the Raleigh Tavern, which will make the building more historically accurate.

New experiences will be had at the George Wythe House, Peyton Randolph House, Anderson Armoury, and James Geddy House, and historic farming will be located behind the Prentis Store. Tour our historic gardens and surround yourself in the colors and scents of the season. A Colonial Williamsburg Admission Ticket is your way to see all this and more this spring. Enjoy one day in our 18th century city, or bounce between centuries with our Spring Bounce Ticket.

 

SUMMER

Summer is the best time to visit both Colonial Williamsburg and Busch Gardens. With a Flex Ticket, you can bounce between centuries. Our Independence Day celebration includes an entire day of activities, including a reading of the Declaration of Independence, and caps off with a spectacular fireworks display at the Governor's Palace and Market Square. You'll also enjoy a salute to the 13 original colonies, music by the Fifes and Drums, and a militia muster.
