If you visit only one historic town in Virginia, make it Williamsburg – home to Colonial Williamsburg, one of the largest, most comprehensive living-history museums in the world. If any place is going to get kids into history, this is it, but it's plenty of fun for adults too. The actual town of Williamsburg, Virginia's capital from 1699 to 1780, is a stately place that can sometimes verge on being twee. Fortunately, the campus of the College of William & Mary adds a decent dash of youth culture.
