Servicemen and women in Hampton Roads can visit Colonial Williamsburg for free from Friday, November 6 to Wednesday, November 11. And it’s a GREAT deal, too.
They’re calling it the “Honoring Service to America” ticket, and it provides admission to Colonial Williamsburg’s Revolutionary City, including the daily “Revolution in the Streets” program, the Capitol and the Governor’s Palace, 30 historic trades sites and the military encampment, the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg and Bassett Hall, the Williamsburg home of founder John D. Rockefeller Jr. and his wife, Abby Aldrich Rockefeller. The tickets also include an Orientation Walk, a tour that provides an overview of Colonial Williamsburg and its restoration, free shuttle bus service to and from the Regional Visitor Center, a viewing of the movie, “Williamsburg: the Story of a Patriot,” and free parking at the Visitor Center.
It’s all part of a Home Depot Foundation $100,000 grant to Colonial Williamsburg in support of its Honoring Service to America program, which provides free admission tickets to active duty military, reservists, retirees, veterans, national guardsmen and their immediate dependents Memorial Day weekend and Veterans Day weekend.
Make sure to mark your calendars!
