Living in Williamsburg, VA

Residents of Williamsburg are never surprised to see someone walking down the street in britches and a wig or a gown from the 18th century. Life in Williamsburg is almost inextricable from American history. Nearly a third of the city is made up of the village of Colonial Williamsburg, comprising the historic district that is run by the private Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. This is the largest living history museum in the world, built around what was the capital of Britain's largest, wealthiest and most populous empire in the New World.

Williamsburg was one of America's first planned cities. When it was laid out in 1699, it soon became the capital of the colony of Virginia. It still maintains its beautiful capitol buildings that were the center of the political, economic and social life across the colony.

The town also establishes an academic prestige with the College of William and Mary, which was founded in 1693. Presidents Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe and John Tyler all graduated from this college, which remains highly selective but also public.

Whether students or not, residents who seek out apartments in Williamsburg will enjoy a quaint town life with gorgeous tree-lined streets and stunning historic architecture.
