Colonial Williamsburg over Thanksgiving...a few questions

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are going to Williamsburg over the Thanksgiving holiday since we have no family in town. We will be driving there from Charlotte, NC. Neither of us have been and I have a few questions.

First, do I need a 2 day pass or can I see most things in 1 day? I know that this question is very dependent on likes/dislikes. We do like history, but we tend to move through things rather quickly. I was a little surprised by the cost of the tickets, and I'm trying to decide if it's worth paying $50 for a two day or if one day may suffice.

Are there restaurants open for Thanksgiving outside of Colonial Williamsburg. I do know that a few of the restaurants in Colonial Williamsburg are open for a Thanksgiving dinner, but at $60 per person this isn't something that we really want to do. We aren't foodies, so are open if anyone has suggestions.

Finally, are things open on Thanksgiving? From looking at the Colonial Williamsburg website, it looks like things will be open but some may have "seasonal hours"...not sure what that means.

Thanks!
Tracy
