Going in June for the first time with 10 and 8 yo boys.  Staying at Fords Colony. What are the most interesting tours,sites in Colonial Williamsburg for this age? Other activities? Restaurants?

    We were dissappinted at Fords Colony. Pretty much out of the way and hard to find at first. Property more geared toward the golfer and older guests. I think next time, we rather stay at a Courtyard near Busch Gardens area. Activities were there but the surrounding atmosphere was lacking a kid sort of environment. Colonial Williamsburg was not as much as we thought it would be, a couple full days was plenty.....though the area was really nice.

    My 8 year old had a blast at Williamsburg.  He wished he had dressed up in the period clothing ,as at first thought it was stupid.  He is sports minded, but still liked all the sites.  Jamestown was also a must see.  Go to the new site first then the old.

    Thanks for sharing this with us!

    We have a family reunion this year and plan to do this trip.

    Sounds like we are in for a historic and beautiful trip.

    You will love the Marriott villas at Williamsburg.  We exchanged our week when the children were 8 and 12 yo.  A must do is Busch Gardens Williamsburg.  Busch has several discounts going* but the window closes soon.  If you have the time, a day trip to Virginia Beach for boogey boarding on the Atlantic will make your family vacation in Virginia unforgettable.  If you have an SUV and love exploring and off-roading, the thriving beach towns and scenic dunes along Cape Hatteras National Seashore in North Carolina are about 3.5 hours southeast of Williamsburg.
