We’re Your Headquarters
Colonial Williamsburg’s hotels and the Revolutionary City are conveniently located within the Historic Triangle and just minutes from two extraordinary adventure parks. With so much to see and do, Williamsburg is a “must see” destination that has something for everyone.
America’s Historic Triangle
Jamestown, Williamsburg, and Yorktown
Three places in Virginia can lay claim to where America was born. The first permanent English settlers arrived at Jamestown in 1607. At Williamsburg, the ideas of independence and revolution took form. The siege of Yorktown in 1781 was the last major battle of the American Revolution. In this Historic Triangle, Europeans, Indians, and Africans came together, and the result was the United States of America.
Experience the past and enjoy commemorative events, educational programming, and entertainment all in one place. Read about America’s Historic Triangle in Virginia or purchase the official guidebook to plan your visit.
Discover the world of the settlers who established the first permanent British settlement in the New World.
Visit Jamestown Settlement and watch 1607: A Nation Takes Root, explore artifact-filled exhibit galleries, board replicas of the Susan Constant, Godspeed, and Discovery, and discover re-creations of a Powhatan Indian village and 1610–1614 English fort.
Explore Yorktown Battlefield, a National Park Service site. Then stroll through the restored 18th-century village of Yorktown.
The Yorktown Victory Center offers unique looks at the lives of everyday people overtaken by revolutionary events. Explore museum exhibits recounting the lives of individuals, a re-created Continental Army encampment, and a 1780s farm.
The Colonial Parkway is a 23-mile scenic roadway stretching from the York River at Yorktown to the James River at Jamestown, connecting Virginia’s historic triangle—Jamestown, Williamsburg, and Yorktown. It is operated and maintained by the National Park Service.
