Colonial Williamsburg

Colonial Williamsburg is a preservation of life in Virginia before the Declaration of Independence. The main park area is about three square miles and there are many historical buildings. Colonial Williamsburg allows dogs in all outdoor areas. If you want to go inside the buildings, then someone will need to stay outside with the dog. Tour materials are available such as tapes, CDs and guide books. There are also horse and carriage tours which may take your dog as it is up to the driver. You can easily spend a full day or even two here with your dog.
