Top May Things To Do In Williamsburg
May 1, 2021 to May 31, 2021
Jamestown Settlement
Schedule
Take a trip back in time and learn what life was like for the early settlers who found themselves making a home in Jamestown Virginia. May is a perfect time to explore what life was like for the 17th century visitors. There is plenty to do and see when exploring the grounds of the Jamestown Settlement. Spend time exploring the replicas of the ships that brought the new settlers to America. Try to crawl into a sailors bunk or give you hand at trying to steer one of the ships. After exploring life at sea, explore the life on land. The replica fort is filled with homes for exploring as well as an Anglican church, the governor's house, and more. Try playing some games in the yard and dress up in armor. After seeing all that the fort has to offer, head to the Powhatan Village. Learn about the life of the Indians and play some of their games while learning how they cooked, made clothes, and more.

Colonial Ghost Tour
Schedule
Whether you are into poltergeists and full-body apparitions or factual history and the events that cause them, you will find it in one of the most haunted and historical cities of old colonial Virginia, Williamsburg. Civil War buffs will enjoy Kimball Theater. The theater was once home for the performing arts and is later to become a facility used for the wounded and dying. Civil War soldiers still linger in the walls of the theater. Historical churches are hot spots for paranormal activities of all kinds. Bruton Parish is a church and hot spot for history enthusiasts, since the full-body apparition that haunts its walls, has important historical significance to the city of Williamsburg. Many residents built homes meant for happy family memories and ended up filled with tragedies that to this day, have never left. Don't plan a day, but rather a week in May if you want enough time to explore every hair tingling, skin-crawling, heebie-jeebie giving corner of old colonial Williamsburg with tours booking daily in May.

Colonial Escape Room
Schedule
I can't think of a better springtime activity to enjoy with the family than the Colonial Escape Room in Williamsburg, VA. Not only is there a wealth of historical knowledge to gain from each room, but there is also a ton of fun challenges and puzzles throughout the experience. I believe May is a great time to take the family to the Colonial Escape Room because it is when the weather in Williamsburg is perfect. There are three escape rooms that are each unique in their own cool, historical way. They also each have a different level of difficulty and require you to think in different ways to solve. Each piece of decor, furniture, and costuming is made to reflect the colonial era with a precise, historical, accuracy. I will definitely be bringing my family back to this Colonial Escape Room next May. Don't forget to take a lot of pictures in front of the decor found in this escape room.
