View Holidays

Referred to as the Historic Triangle, Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown are lauded for their historical significance and close proximity to one another and are centred around the town of Williamsburg which is widely considered the “Colonial Capital” of America. Offering exceptional historical, cultural and recreational activities to get visitors immersed in more than four centuries of American history, this area is a must-visit for anyone who’s ever wondered about the foundations of the United States.

Start with Williamsburg – known as the birthplace of American democracy – the city boasts fully-preserved historic buildings like the Capitol, constructed in 1704, the Wren Building, constructed in 1716 on the prestigious College of William & Mary campus and the Governor’s Palace, erected in 1720. It is also home to Colonial Williamsburg, a life-size recreation of the original 18th century town. The city also has plenty else should you need a break from history with opportunities for outdoor pursuits, local shopping and fine art viewing in places like the Muscarelle Museum of Art and the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Fork Art Museum.

Next, walk the grounds of Jamestown – the first permanent English settlement in North America in 1607 – this historic site includes artifacts from the original setters in the Archaearium archaeology museum, the remains of the 18th century Ambler Mansion and a living-history museum, the Jamestown Settlement with recreations of a 1610s fort and a Powhatan Native American village.

End with Yorktown where the final battle for America’s independence from Britain took place. The town is full of 18th century homes and American Revolution history, nestled among picturesque streets, and charming local businesses overlooking the York River.
