CW offers Virginia residents annual pass discount through March 31
From now through March 31, it pays to be a Virginian, as Colonial Williamsburg offers Virginia residents a 20 percent discount on any annual pass. The ticket includes general admission to the Historic Area and museums for $46.40 for adults and $23.20 for children six through 17. Children under six are admitted free. Annual passes include a 25 percent discount on evening programs. Discounts do not include dining events and are not offered during the holiday period between Thanksgiving Day and Jan. 3, 2011.
The savings are only available to residents of Virginia and may be purchased online, or by calling 1-800-HISTORY (1-800-447-8679), or at the Colonial Williamsburg Visitor Center. All purchases must be redeemed at the Visitor Center with a valid Virginia ID.
The ticket offer is only available until March 31, but the ticket is valid one full year from date of purchase. Colonial Williamsburg is open every day of the year. The offer may not be combined with another offer and is not available to groups.
