5 Reasons to Visit Colonial Williamsburg

Pay attention to special sales/days:

Colonial Williamsburg has several special opportunities year round, like a free day for homeschoolers (wut wut!), discounted military days, and deals for locals.

Speaking of the last one, if you live in the Hampton Roads area, keep your ear to the ground around the last week of summer vacation. That’s when Colonial Williamsburg offers free admission for locals and discounted yearly passes. This year I bought mine for $25, which is a pretty hot deal!
