The premier attraction in Williamsburg is Colonial Williamsburg. Step back into the 18th century at America's most comprehensive living history museum. Explore at a time when Williamsburg, Va. was a powerful center of politics, commerce and culture. Visit more than 500 original and carefully restored public buildings, private homes, shops and taverns, as well as the Governor's Palace. Jamestown, the First Permanent English Settlement, is a recreation of village and fort alongside a Powhatan Indian village. There are also the replicas of the three English ships that brought the settlers to the new world.

Your Williamsburg field trip also includes a visit to the Yorktown Victory Center where American and French forces defeated British troops in the last major battle of the Revolutionary War. Explore the Continental Army encampment and adjacent farm.

A field trip to Williamsburg would not be complete without a visit to some of Williamsburg's other well known attractions such as the Shirley, Berkeley or Sherwood Forest Plantations. See life sized re-creations of all the U.S. Presidents at Presidents Park. See the shows and ride the roller coasters at Busch Gardens.

A Williamsburg field trip may be enhanced by visits to several attractions that are located nearby such as the Norfolk Naval Base where you may see U.S. Navy's East Coast fleet. Visit Nauticus, the hi- tech marine science museum. For fun and relaxation, spend the day at Virginia Beach or tour Monticello, Thomas Jefferson's home and estate.
