Things to do

Adjacent to the campus is Colonial Williamsburg, which along with Jamestown and Yorktown comprise the Historic Triangle. It's like the Bermuda Triangle, but instead of wrecking ships, it provides insights into American History. Other nearby attractions include an extensive array of outlet stores, an Anheuser-Busch brewery, Busch Gardens amusement park - which offers a special William & Mary day in October for faculty and students - and New Town, which offers convenient access to restaurants, shopping and a multiplex theatre.

Travel opportunities

Williamsburg, Virginia is located about 2 and a half hours from US capital Washington DC and just over three hours from Baltimore.


Williamsburg has cool to mild winters, and hot, humid summers. Due to the inland location, winters are slightly cooler and spring days slightly warmer than in Norfolk, though lows average 2°C.

Snowfall averages 5.1 inches (13 cm) per season, and the summer months tend to be slightly wetter.
