Locals: FREE Tickets to Colonial Williamsburg

If you are a local who wonders why you don’t ever get to Colonial Williamsburg now is your chance to make up for that.

Right now Colonial Williamsburg is offering free tickets to its Historic Area and art museums to residents of most cities and counties in Hampton Roads.  They are available Aug. 8 through Aug. 15 to residents of Williamsburg, James City County, York County, Gloucester County, Newport News, Hampton, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk and Virginia Beach.

The free ticket offer is only available at Colonial Williamsburg’s Regional Visitor Center, located at 101 Visitor Center Drive.

The ticket counter is open from 8:45 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily. Proof of residency is required to qualify for free ticket. Members of the military who have temporary residence status should provide military ID and a piece of mail or other document that includes local address. Ticket must be used on the date of issue.
