Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia is hands down one of the great family trips you can make in your Class C motorhome. There is something for everyone to enjoy. RV campgrounds abound, and Williamsburg is an adventure that your children will never forget.
The best time to visit Colonial Williamsburg
Springtime cannot be beat for sheer beauty. Flowers are blooming, and the vernal sunshine lightens your eyes, and makes your heart skip for joy. Temperatures in April and May are pleasant without the summer heat and humidity.
December is spectacular with the Christmas decorations, lights, and entertainment. Time your visit with The Grand Illumination of Williamsburg, and you will witness a breath-taking ceremony of lights and fireworks.
Williamsburg is a history smorgasbord
Colonial Williamsburg is a leap back in time. There are people dressed in period clothing walking the streets. You may have tea with Martha Washington, or chat with Patrick Henry in the College of William and Mary.
Restaurants prepare delicious dishes of yore, and shops are replete with colonial wares for sale. After the fife and drum corps plays its way through the town at sunset, you can go on a ghost tour.
Historic Jamestown, the first English settlement in Virginia, is nearby. Yorktown, where the British general Cornwallis surrendered to General Washington at the end of the Revolutionary War, portrays the fife and drum corps playing “The World Turned Upside Down.”
There is so much to see and do, that you will be glad to climb into your Class C motorhome at the end of the day.
