Considered as an independent city in Virginia, Williamsburg is the Northern part of the Hampton Roads metropolitan area. Williamsburg was established in 1632. It was founded as a Middle Plantation or a fortified settlement right in the middle of the James and York rivers. It has also served as the capital of the colony and became a center of multiple political events up until the American Revolution. Needless to say, Williamsburg is rich with both history and culture. Ever since then, it has also started attracting tourists and guests. One of the best tourist attractions is the large brewery. We’ve listed down the best HomeAway vacation rentals for your next stay in Williamsburg.
