Come see where America began. Visit Jamestown established in 1607 and site of the first permanent English settlement in the "New World". Step back into the 18th century in Williamsburg, restored to the time when it was the largest and most populated of Britain's 13 colonies. And walk the road to revolution at Yorktown where our independence was won when General Cornwallis surrendered to General George Washington on October 19, 1781, during the American Revolutionary War.
Known for our cultural museums and nationally recognized historic sites, the Historic Triangle is also home to modern-day, world-class attractions including two Anheuser-Busch theme parks, Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Water Country USA. With over 10,000 hotel rooms, fabulous shopping and dining, outstanding golf, and one-of-a-kind entertainment venues, the Williamsburg Area offers something for everyone. Located on the Atlantic seaboard between the majestic James and York Rivers, the Historic Triangle is a travel destination unlike any other place in the country.
