Official Guide to Colonial Williamsburg Reviews
I ordered this book because we're going to Williamsburg in a couple of weeks. I know there are a lot of things to see and do there, and I wanted a guide so that we don't lose a lot of time getting our bearings once we're there.This book is produced by the Colonial Williamsburg foundation and it's incredible. It has many photographs and an illustration of every building in Colonial Williamsburg with a couple of paragraphs on the history of the building and what you can see and do there now as well as information about the restoration process. There are multiple maps with different degrees of detail and a street by street guide to the historical city. The information in this book will be vital to our trip and make an excellent souvenir when we return.If anyone is planning a trip to the Eastern United States or they just want a virtual trip to this historic treasure, the book was only $11 on Amazon. It's awesome!
I purchased this book during our stay at Colonial Williamsburg. I loved reading this book on the way home because I had seen the places in the book and had fond memories of my time there. It was also nice because we had a long drive back to the airport and it helped my husband and I pass the time as I relayed some of the new information to him. It would have also been useful to read this book while on property to make sure you know what there is to see and don't miss anything.
Although I finished this book many years ago, when I browsed through it, after buying it as a souvenier as a young-child(thanks to my parents), I decided to re-read it over this past late-summer(and boy did I miss a lot during that time). Although it's not as good as most books would be on informative tidbits, this book does do a good job at describing some of the information on each house in an organized fashion, and what is contained within each house at Colonial Williamsburg.
I purchased this book in preparation for my trip to Colonial Williamsburg, and while I enjoyed the historical background information beforehand, I felt this volume was difficult to use as a guide while on site. The organization just didn't work well for me. Still, I don't know that there is a better Williamsburg travel guide option out there, and this was certainly better than nothing!
I rarely use these guides when I'm in the location unless I have a lot of time. Mostly they are souvenirs I expect to read someday when I get home and I'm not traveling. I don't often read them at home but the urge is there and I'll probably read them more as I age and travel less.
I love thinks like this. I have been to Williamsburg at least 3 times and love it every time. Its nice to have a companion book that has the best pictures and information tied to it.
It's been a while. I'd like to go back...
