As you explore the Historic Area, get caught up in the historic moments taking place around you. Take a scenic carriage ride through the city for a unique perspective on transportation in the 18th century.

Kimball Theatre

Since 1933, the Kimball Theatre has been a venue for thought-provoking film festivals, musical performances, and 18th-century plays and programming featuring Nation Builders, among many others. Located in Merchants Square, this historic theater links our past with the present.


Wellness & Recreation

History isn't the only thing Colonial Williamsburg has to offer. Unwind after a day of exploration and adventure at the Spa of Colonial Williamsburg, tee off on one of the championship courses at the Golden Horseshoe Golf Club, or get in a game of tennis. And if that wasn't enough, you can also join The Clubs and enjoy all the benefits that come with membership.

Nearby Attractions

In addition to Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown make up the Historic Triangle. The events in these three places—establishing the first permanent English settlement in Jamestown, declaring independence in Williamsburg, and winning the last major battle of the American Revolution at Yorktown—led to the birth of our nation. Looking for a thrill? Busch Gardens and Water Country USA offer rides and entertainment for the whole family.
