Williamsburg, Yorktown, Jamestown questions

Jump to last reply

Haven't gotten the level of specifics looking for by tagging onto an active thread, so I'll start a new one, adding a few extra questions.

In doing some research on Fodor's forums, I encountered the suggestion that 2 days would be about right for a thorough exploration of Colonial Williamsburg. But in looking at the list of attractions, which includes:

Bassett Hall, Brush-Everard House, The Capitol, The Courthouse, George Wythe House, Governor's Palace, The College of William & Mary, James Geddy House & Foundry, The Magazine & Guardhouse, Peyton Randolph House, The Public Gaol, The Public Hospital, Raleigh Tavern, and Wetherburn's Tavern, plus the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum and Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum

I'm wondering if that's feasible in just two days unless all but the two museums are walk-bys. If seeing all this, would it indeed take just two days, or longer?

For example, how big are the two museums? If one is thorough, is 2 hours total enough for both? A whole day for both? Somewhere in between?

If the houses, taverns, and William and Mary are not just walk-bys, how long would it take for each? An hour? More? A little less?

Also saw that it will again be possible to reach Yorktown and Jamestown from Williamsburg via shuttle bus in season (March to October). Yorktown has both the Yorktown Battlefield and Yorktown Victory Center to offer, while Jamestown has both Historic Jamestowne and Jamestown Settlement (the shuttle bus stops at all four and seems to run efficiently). If seeing the two options in Yorktown and the two options in Jamestown this way, should one budget one full day each for Yorktown and Jamestown or two full days each?

Also, how much of the Yorktown Battlefield attraction can be seen without a car?

Many thanks.
