Overview

Just in time for the 400th anniversary of Jamestown, the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation offers its own comprehensive guide to Virginia's "Historic Triangle." It was in 1607 at Jamestown that John Smith and his fellow Englishmen established the first permanent settlement in North America. It was here that Smith met Pocahontas, that the first representative assembly in the New World convened, and that the first African slaves arrived. Just a few miles down the road is Williamsburg, where men like George Washington, Patrick Henry, George Mason, and Thomas Jefferson conceived a new nation. The third point in the Triangle, also just a few miles away, is Yorktown, where French and American troops under Washington's command forced the British surrender and won the nation's independence. If you are among the millions who will visit in 2007 and beyond, this lively and lavishly illustrated guide will tell you everything you need to know about the places where America was born, along with all the practical information you'll need to make the most of your trip.

    My review of The Official Guide to America's Historic Triangle

    Since I am interested in the history of towns that my husband and I
    plan to visit I check with my book store Barnes and Noble for the information I need and found the writings on Jamestown, Williamsburg and
    Yorktown. A very interesting read showing me what to plan for, sights not
    to miss and checking in with the tourist guide as soon as we arrive.

    I am so looking forward to actually seeing for myself what our leaders
    George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, George Mason, and George Wythe and how they shaped the ideas and responsibilities that transformed English into Americans, subjects into citizens. All the museums, gardens, restaurants, public buildings, homes, monuments, galleries, entertainment that will be current to enjoy for a lifetime
    of memories.
    Reading all about this fantastic time in history was spelled out perfectly
    for our enjoyment and the excitement in coming to this part of the country from Florida for a wonderful vacation. To read about the people
    from these towns that made up our great time in history is so fascinating
    you can almost hear the conversations going on about them from day to day.

    A remarkable job of John F. Blair, Publisher and the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.

    Guideing my travel to VA

    I often purchase a book about the places that I travel and I found this book fit the bill for my recent trip to the tidewater area. This Jamestown, Williamsburg, Yorktown guide offered great photos, clear maps and fact bites that I might have missed traveling with small children. It also covered the history of each area clearly. In addition to the Historic Triangle the book also suggested other family friendly things to do and see. I was really able to plan my trip and all our site seeing using this guide book and the enternet. It was worth the money I spent.
