5 Reasons to Visit Colonial Williamsburg
2. Kid (and Dog) Friendly
Colonial Williamsburg is fun to visit as an adult, but for a kid it’s nearly magical. You can ask whatever you want, explore a ton of houses, and even rent costumes to wear while you’re doing it.
Guides take particular care to include kids in their talks, whether that be letting kids stand in for jurors in the court or answering their notebook full of questions in the millinery shop. I’ve seen both happen! As a teenager, I even went up to the courthouse to ask the guide there about benefit of the clergy and abolitionists in the American Revolution. He chatted happily with me until I had the information I wanted.
Dogs are also welcome in Williamsburg, though often not inside buildings. However, plenty of restaurants in the area welcome dog owners to outdoor seating.
