No visit to Colonial Williamsburg is complete without our official guide book!
This first new edition of Colonial Williamsburg's official guide since 2014, this book includes information on all of Colonial Williamsburg's historic sites. This guide provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date information for every public building, private home, tavern and trade site of what happened here and why it mattered—and still matters, while also providing histories of the buildings and some of the people who lived there. For the newly expanded Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg, including the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum and the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum, the guide presents a sampling of the thousands of works on display, including American and British fine, decorative and mechanical art, and American folk art. The book also includes information on Colonial Williamsburg resorts, dining, and shopping.
With more than 100 illustrations and color photos as well as maps to help you find your way and locate more than 150 buildings and sites, this guide is the essential companion for every visitor.

The Guide is Excellent! It certainly updated my 25 year old Guide.
The guide book was quite detailed and helpful. Some of the questions that I hope it would answer for our upcoming visit were referred to the website. A simple updatable insert would be helpful for subjects like how to make a dinner reservation at the historical taverns or how to arrange for a carriage ride.
Wish we had this for our previous trips to Williamsburg! So many interesting facts about CW--enriches our memories and makes us want to come back soon!
