The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation operates the world’s largest living history museum in Williamsburg, Virginia—the restored 18th-century capital of Britain’s largest, wealthiest, and most populous outpost of empire in the New World. Here we interpret the origins of the idea of America, conceived decades before the American Revolution. The Colonial Williamsburg story of a revolutionary city tells how diverse peoples, having different and sometimes conflicting ambitions, evolved into a society that valued liberty and equality. Americans cherish these values as a birthright, even when their promise remains unfulfilled.
In Colonial Williamsburg’s 301-acre Historic Area stand hundreds of restored, reconstructed, and historically furnished buildings. Costumed interpreters tell the stories of the men and women of the 18th-century city—black, white, and native American, slave, indentured, and free—and the challenges they faced. In this historic place, we help the future learn from the past.
Our resort collection consists of six unique hotel properties. They are conveniently located within and surrounding the Revolutionary City, just minutes from all the action. Whether guests travel for a family vacation, romantic getaway, or discovery of America’s founding, we have a hotel to suit their personality and budget. With a mixture of restaurants, bars, lounges, and cafés located in and around the Revolutionary City, guests also find the perfect place for a historically-inspired family meal or an intimate evening of creative cuisine. Our chefs use only the freshest ingredients, including meats and seafood raised right here in Virginia.
