Free passes to Colonial Williamsburg for Hampton Roads residents…

Starting Friday August 8, 2014 Colonial Williamsburg is offering an unbeatable end-of-summer deal to residents of the region – free one-day tickets to Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area and Art Museums August 8 -15 for adults and accompanying children.
imageResidents of Williamsburg, James City County, York County and Gloucester County are eligible for the free tickets, as are those who live in Newport News, Hampton, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk and Virginia Beach.
“We are extending this offer to people who live in communities that have been strong supporters of Colonial Williamsburg,” said Skip Ferebee, director of consumer strategy and sales. “Colonial Williamsburg is a national treasure located close to home. We invite our neighbors to experience all that a visit to the Revolutionary City offers – the interactive spy game, ‘RevQuest: The Old Enemy,’ 19 historic trades, the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum and Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum, 90 acres of gardens, 88 original structures and nearly 500 buildings reconstructed on the basis of extensive research and, last but not least, the engaging Revolutionary City street theater that puts visitors in the heart of a town in the throes of war.”
The free ticket offer is only available at Colonial Williamsburg’s Regional Visitor Center, located at 101 Visitor Center Drive, accessible via the Colonial Parkway, Virginia Route 132 and U.S. Route 60 Bypass Road. 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.
