With temperatures being cool and crisp enough to enjoy a roaring fire on the street corners of Colonial Williamsburg but yet not so cold that you don’t want to go out side and take in a horse drawn carriage ride, it is a perfect place to celebrate the holidays with friends, family or that special someone.
Between Thanksgiving and the first weekend in January, choose from hundreds of holiday dining, program, and music events—including many that highlight coffee, chocolate, and hospitality to celebrate Charlton’s Coffeehouse opening. ’Ties the season to experience the Historic Area’s rich traditions and exquisite decorations and enjoy this romantic interpretation of Christmas two centuries ago. The options to build special memories here are endless. And remember, with your visit, you’re also giving back, by helping to support The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.
Christmas in Williamsburg is pure magic. It’s a walk down cobblestone streets, admiring colonial homes proudly festooned with garlands of fresh apples, magnolia and pine. It’s hot cider on a cold, blue-skied day. It’s the sound of a fife-and-drum concert, the harmony of traditional carolers, the ringing of real jingle bells on a horse-drawn carriage. When you visit America’s Historic Triangle during the holidays, you step into an enchanting place at a most enchanting time of year.
New for 2009, Christmas Town: A Busch Gardens Celebration creates the anticipation of the season and fills visitors’ senses with all things Christmas. Beginning Nov. 27, visitors will experience all-new attractions, shows and shopping filled with the holiday spirit. From more than a million twinkling lights, the smell of fresh baked Christmas cookies and one-of-a-kind gift ideas to a spectacular 45-foot, light-animated Christmas tree, Christmas Town will have park-goers saying, “Now this is Christmas.” Christmas Town will add a unique holiday tradition to Virginia. Check out Christmas Town for the latest information.
It’s a wonderful place to create new traditions with your family, even as you discover the world of Christmas past. Watch the night sky come to life with the blast and sparkle of 18th century fireworks at Colonial Williamsburg’s Grand Illumination. Try a roasted chestnut at the Christmas Market in Yorktown. Or, greet the season with a tour at Jamestown Settlement and the Yorktown Victory Center during “A Colonial Christmas” that lets you see the holidays through the eyes of a Jamestown settler, a battle-weary Revolutionary War soldier, or a colonial farmer.
On every street corner you’ll see something new and exciting, from holiday parades and concerts, to special children’s events and unique shopping opportunities. And it wouldn’t be Christmas without lights—glowing from the boughs of beautifully decorated trees, shining across the water at the Yorktown Lighted Boat Parade, and flickering in candlelit windows.
When you plan your holiday visit to the Williamsburg area, you’ll unwrap a classic Christmas getaway that you and your family will remember forever. And there’s no better gift than that.
