Presidents' Weekend

Take advantage of the long weekend to visit the place where it all began. Before they were presidents, Virginians George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison were shaped by their experiences in Williamsburg. Meet them and discover the roles that each played in Virginia’s colonial capitol and how that prepared them to be Commanders in Chief.
