Williamsburg

Williamsburg was the capital of Virginia from 1699 to 1780, after Jamestown and before Richmond. Williamsburg hasn't been politically important for a long time, but now that Colonial Williamsburg is there to represent it in its era of glory, it's a jewel of the commonwealth. Outside the restored area is a modern city with plenty of dining and lodging options and attractions, including outlet shops and popular Busch Gardens and Water Country USA. But the main draw is still time-traveling into a time of tricornered hats at Colonial Williamsburg.
