Tour bus from Washington, D.C. to Williamsburg, Virginia

by sddaj

Hello,

Doe anyone know of a tour bus (or other reasonably priced and quick transportation) that goes from the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area to Williamsburg, Virginia? I'm having a difficult time locating one on the internet and would appreciate any help. Thanks so much.

Amtrak does the trip twice a day (at least, it does a week from Monday). There are two departures from Union Station in DC: 7:30 am (arr Williamsburg 11:15 am), and 5:00 pm (arr 8:23 pm). See www.amtrak.com . The fare for a week from Monday is $39.00USD. Fares may change as you get closer to departure date.

Of course, the station is in the modern city, but the colonial site appears to be a short distance away (sorry, I drove, so I can't say anything about walking...taxi would probably be a better choice)...

There are probably also buses that make this trip...

Yes, Greyhound does the trip as well (www.greyhound.com).

I took Amtrak many years ago and got to colonial Williamsburg from the station by public transport (I can't recall how - probably a cab!). Don't forget to visit Rockefeller's House with the lovely Magnolia tree (hope it is still there!) and nearby Jamestown, where the English colonists first landed! They had a replica of the original boat used! I loved the restaurants and shops in Willimsburg :-)

Travel Tips for Williamsburg

Take the Orientation Tour

by toonsarah

Your admission ticket for Colonial Williamsburg includes a 30 minute Orientation Tour. Even if like us you don’t like to go round in a tour group this is worth taking, especially if you only have one day for your visit, as it gives you a quick overview of the site. It will also help you focus on the things you most want to see and plan your day in a logical way to fit as much as possible into it.

Busch Gardens Williamsburg

by b1bob

In 1975, Busch Gardens opened its theme park near its Williamsburg brewery, which used to give tours. The nickname for Busch Gardens Williamsburg was (and is) The Old Country. There are various sections of the park that copy the architecture and style of certain European countries like England, France, and Germany. Since its opening, they have added Italy in 1980 and were working on Ireland when I was there last in May, 2000.

Smile, hairstyle and jewelry

by matcrazy1

The wife of the Virginia's Governor in Williamsburg (1699 - 1780), as the most important women's figure in Virginia and even maybe between the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean, had to look and behave in a very distinguished way following strictly the customs of the upper class. She was trained and taught dance, good manners, decent behaviour in company, conversation, how to dress, move, speak, even smile.

SMILE
The first lady of 18th century Virginia smiled to the governor's servant when he welcomed her after coming back home as you can see on my picture. But she was not allowed to smile to uknown males or to laugh too loud or too much. Hmm... read 110 Rules of Civility & Decent Behaviour In Company and Conversation transcribed by 16 years old George Washington, later the first US President; done as his exercise at school.

HAIRSTYLE
The rounded hairstyle with short, tight curls of the first lady had to be fashionable in early 18th century but, it's not my favourite woman's hairstyle. But real nightmare started from the 1770s when fashionable women had powdered pompadour hairdos, high even more than a foot (30.5 cm) and decorated with ribbons and flowers and sometimes even full scenes such as miniature ships in full sail!

JEWELRY
The first lady wore impressive, silver necklase set with precious stones and the similar in design earings. Ribbons, necklaces and ruffs were the most popular form of accesory of 18th upper class woman.

Williamsburg Golf

by doogienj

I played 3 area courses when I visited Williamsburg. The good thing playing around Thanksgiving holiday is that all the courses are open, and very empty.

I didn't make, or need any advance tee times. The courses I played are as follows:

Golden Horseshoe - Green Course
This is a very nice Donald Ross layout with tight fairways and mounds all over the place. There are tons of pine trees on this course. The say the golden course is the best. I say save your money and enjoy the green.

Kiskiack
This course was very average. It was too open in a park like setting for my taste. A few good holes, and water comes into play on several holes. If you only play two rounds, I would not play this one.

Stonehouse Golf Club
This is a wonderful round of golf. The course is very hilly and you are glad that carts are mandatory. Most holes are framed and isolated. I lost some balls thanks to blind shots and leafs. Some holes you feel like you're really in the wilderness. I will play here again. Your sticks, some warmer clothes in late November. Extra sleves of balls as you'll lose some in the leafes.

British military post

by matcrazy1

There are such wooden structures, as on my picture, decorated with British flags put around colonial Williamsburg. Unfortunately there is no information what is that at place.

It is military post of British colonial army which resided in Williamsburg until 1775 when it was replaced by first Williamsburg militia, then regular U.S. army. British Royal troops put up such posts along main routes during the Revolutionary War (1775 - 1783).
