    Guided tour of Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area 
    From 1699 to 1780 Williamsburg was the political and cultural center of Britain’s largest colony in the New World.  In the shops, taverns, government buildings, homes and streets, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, George Mason, and other Virginia Patriots debated the ideas – liberty, independence, and personal freedoms – that led to the founding of American democracy and inspired generations of Americans and others from around the world.
    Enjoy lunch on your own at Merchants Square and tour with our guide in the afternoon or explore the Historic Area on your own.  Shopping is also available at Merchants Square, adjacent to the Historic Area.
  • 5:30pm
    Colonial Williamsburg Tavern Dinner
    Taverns were not only an integral part of colonial life in America, but were also a necessity.  The modes of travel and transportation of the day mandated the location of a tavern every few miles on the main thoroughfares, where tired and hungry travelers could find food and drink and a bed or floor upon which to sleep. 
    Each of the four operating taverns located in Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area are inspired by a different style of colonial-era cooking. All the menus trace America’s culinary heritage from its British ancestry and celebrate the transformation of dishes through the use of ingredients commonly found in the colonies and through the influence of non-British cooks.
  • 7:00pm
    The Hauntings of Williamsburg Candlelight Walking Tour
    Journey by candlelight through the streets of Colonial Williamsburg listening to eerie tales of Williamsburg’s only witch trial, Black Beard and his crew, the “Wagon of Death,” which can still be heard bringing prisoners to the gallows, and accounts – told centuries apart – of ghostly parties at Raleigh Tavern.  Based on stories from Jackie Eileen Behrend’s award-winning book, The Hauntings of Williamsburg, Yorktown and Jamestown.
