Cool Down in Merchants Square

With record-breaking temperatures all across the country, you might be tempted to stay inside. Luckily, there are ways to beat the heat in Williamsburg that do not include staying in the air conditioning all day. After a day learning about America’s beginnings, cool down in Merchants Square!

Through September, the Merchants Square Summer Breeze Series brings you free movies and concerts every single week. Merchants Square sits right beside Colonial Williamsburg, a 301-acre outdoor living history museum. Dine, shop and enjoy seasonal attractions that make Williamsburg a vacation destination unlike any other. Here’s the lineup for the remainder of the Summer Breeze Series!

If you visit us at King’s Creek this winter for Busch Gardens’ Christmas Town, don’t miss ice skating, Christmas carols and hot cocoa at the Liberty Ice Pavilion from November to February!
