Yorktown Battlefield, Yorktown

(4.7/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
See the site of the Revolutionary War's last major battle, Yorktown Battlefield. Here the American and French troops secured the independence of the United States from the British in 1781. Begin at the visitor center, where you can watch a short video introduction and admire artifacts found on the battlefield, including tents used by Gen. George Washington's army. Maps available at the reception desk give instructions for self-guided driving tours. If you'd prefer to explore on foot with a guide, take a ranger-led walking tour. The guided tour also includes a stop in the Historic Jamestowne. A small per-person fee is charged at the reception desk. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Yorktown Battlefield and many more Yorktown attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Yorktown vacation builder.

  • Really a neat place to go. Interesting museum and quality tour. Spent 4-5 at the museum and walking along the beach.
  • The battlefields are historically accurate. The driving seeks guided tours are well marked with areas of interest abs include the historical significance of each location.
