Colonial Williamsburg offers substantial savings to Virginia residentsColonial Williamsburg offers Virginia residents an opportunity for considerable savings — pay for one day and get the rest of the year free.
Back by popular demand, the Salute to Virginia promotion encourages the purchase of a Colonial Williamsburg pass for the price of a single day admission — a 30 percent savings. The offer is valid from March 21 through May 31.
“This promotion was very well received by Virginia residents last year,” said Skip Ferebee, Colonial Williamsburg’s director of consumer strategy. “We listened to our fellow Virginians. We heard how honored they felt with this special offer, so we are bringing it back because of its overwhelming success.
The James Anderson Armoury complex reconstruction is complete, including the new Tinsmith Shop, and we’ll soon begin reconstruction of the Market House. Our museums are opening new exhibitions, plus families will enjoy playing the newest version of our popular alternative reality game, ‘RevQuest: The Old Enemy.’”
The Salute to Virginia offer is designed to appeal to Virginians who love history and want to experience Colonial Williamsburg season by season. This Colonial Williamsburg pass encourages guests to see and experience the variety of programming, special events, annual celebrations and the classic beauty of the restored capital city of 18th-century Virginia.
