Williamsburg Memorial Day Discounts

Colonial Williamsburg is offering free admission for active duty military, reservists, retirees, veterans and their families.  The offer is available today, May 22, through Monday, May 25.  Honorably discharged veterans will have to bring a copy of their DD214.  The passes are only available at the on-site ticket windows.  For more information, you can call 1-800-HISTORY.

While you are in Williamsburg, you may also want to take advantage of Anheuser-Busch's Hero's Salute program.  Once again, Anheuser-Busch is offering free single-day admission for the service member and up to three direct dependents to any Anheuser-Busch theme park, including Sea World, Busch Gardens, Water Country USA, Sesame Place and Adventure Island.  My family has taken advantage of this fantastic promotion the last several years, going to Water Country USA in Williamsburg.  It has been so much fun for many reasons – we get to spend an enjoyable day playing together, and Mom isn't stressed out by the cost of the food because we didn't have to pay the admission fees.  I would say that our times at Water Country USA have been some of our best family memories and I truly appreciate the generosity of Anheuser-Busch.

If you can pull together a last minute trip to Williamburg, or you live in the area, these are fabulous discounts on great experiences that might otherwise be unaffordable for many families.  I hope to hear that some of you are able to enjoy them!
