In the 18th Century the American Colonies were an integral part of a global economic system. Explore how the tobacco economy of Virginia contributed to the larger economy. Discover how this economy effected the daily lives of those who lived and worked in the capital city and how the American Revolution set in motion changes that would have a lasting effect on the American economy.

What should I pack to wear?
We want you to be comfortable while you are here. Most participants bring slacks, tops/collared shirts, and comfortable walking shoes. The streets in Williamsburg have shells, pebbles, and sand that may irritate your feet if you wear sandals or open-toed shoes.
The traveling from place to place is done on foot. You may walk a mile or more each day as you explore Colonial Williamsburg’s Revolutionary City.
Programming continues through all types of weather, including rain. It is important to bring rain gear like a poncho or an umbrella.
Because Colonial Williamsburg seldom closes – even for hurricanes – we do not anticipate changes to our schedules due to weather. In case of lightning or other severe weather, we reserve the right to alter the schedule, but programs are rarely canceled due to weather.
