Williamsburg

Williamsburg Bus Tour OhioExperience the history and charm presented by Colonial Williamsburg. Located along Virginia’s Peninsula, the historic district is home to a living 18th century museum. Williamsburg, along with Jamestown and Yorktown make up what is called the Historic Triangle of Virginia. All of the surrounding buildings are either surviving or restored from the original sites in the 1930’s. The historical district is populated with many historical re-enactors that dress, behave, and talk like they would have in the colonial times. During your stay, make sure to stick around for one of the several scheduled re-enactments.

Located within the city are two major theme parks, Busch Gardens and Water Country USA. Busch Gardens is a European themed amusement park, and was voted “The Most Beautiful Theme Park in America” 16 years in a row by the National Amusement Park Historical Association. Make sure to check out their newest rollercoaster “Griffon”, a floorless 205 ft rollercoaster with a 90 degree drop.
