Welcome to Virginia’s Historic Triangle, where you can see where America began: Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown.
Jamestown, established in 1607, is the site of the first permanent English settlement in the New World. 2007 marked the 400th anniversary of our nation’s birthplace.
Step back in time to see a thriving 18th century community when you visit Colonial Williamsburg and experience daily life in the colonies. Williamsburg was the largest and most populated of Britain’s 13 colonies, and this made it a powerful center of politics, commerce and culture.
Explore over 500 original and carefully reconstructed public buildings, private homes, taverns, shops, and 90 acres of gardens and greens in the Historic Area.
Walk the road to revolution in Yorktown, where American and French forces defeated British troops in the autumn of 1781 in the last major battle of the Revolutionary War.
