Travel Tips for Williamsburg

Visitor's Centre

by bugalugs

Before we visited The Colonial part of Williamsburg I had thought that it was only accessible by paying, however this is not so. Anyone can walk round this Colonial town, day or night and see all the lovely buildings. But should you wish to enter some of the buildings then you have to purchase a pass at the Visitor's Centre which is open 365 days per year, however opening hours are shorter during winter months.

In the buildings for which you have to have a ticket you will see exhibits and how it was like for people living on Colonial times all dressed in the clothes of the period.

This photo is taken outside the visitors centre showing a bronze map of the area. The Visitors Centre is off Colonial Parkway, directions to the centre all well signposted.

There weren't any cultural...

There weren't any cultural mishaps I ran into while in Williamsburg. However it is a great place to have cultural experiences. When you buy your pass to get in, you are given a name badge with your photo and where you are from on it. There are people from all over the world there and chances are they would be more than happy to chat with you.

They drank beer and cider

by matcrazy1

I saw both beer and cider sold in old-fashionable colonial grocery (M. Dubois Grocer) in Williamsburg.

BEER
I got to know that early British colonists of Williamsburg (settled in 1633) had a fairly simple life. The typical immigrant had only three things on their mind: where to get food, how to secure shelter and when would they get their next beer. Well, imported beer was expensive, so they erected a brewhouse as one of their first structures.

DEADLY FRESH WATER
Drinking fresh water could make them deathly ill. In those times people didn't know that boling water can prevent fatal diseases. So, they were looking for more safe drinks for daily use. Is that the reason that most American beers till today are light or very light? Well, can you imagine early settlers and their women and kids drinking strong beer all the day?

CIDER
As Williamsburg had good climate both for apples orchards and grapes settlers started to make both apple and grape cider very soon. Cider was cheaper than beer because of simpler technology and became the most often used drink in early colonial times especially among lower classes. Tea and later coffee (wine as well) were always more expensive and drank mostly by upper classes.

Christopher Wren Building

by acemj

The Christopher Wren Building on the campus of William & Mary is the oldest building still in use on a college campus in the U.S. (it dates to 1695).
You can take student-led a tour of the building and the rest of the campus by contacting the Admissions office at the number below.

Prime Outlets

by b1bob about Prime Outlets

Prime Outlets is a shopping centre of about 80 outlet stores. An outlet store helps a company unload its surplus product at a reduced price. Among the more prominent tenants of this shopping centre: Nike, Oshkosh B'Gosh, L.L. Bean, Samsonite and Corningware. There are many more. All those clothing stores are nice. I mean, what's wrong with overstocked clothes at a serious discount? However, I like to stuff my face. The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory is one of my favourite places, but I also enjoy Le Gourmet Chef. Not only does the Gourmet Chef offer kitchen supplies, but they also offer a wide range of foods and sauces, many of which are put out by Food Network personalities such as Emeril Lagasse, Ina Garten, and Paula Deen. I picked up a couple of sauces by Paula Deen. There were free samples of several brands of sauces for pretzels and corn chips. I was most keen on the olive oil based dipping sauces for bread. Stopping here was like an appetiser before lunch. Women's, men's, children's and family apparel; health & beauty; shoes; luggage / handbags; home furnishings; housewares; accessories; specialty; and food.
