As the temperatures cool, the Greater Williamsburg area is warming up seasonal deals for travelers to come see both the historic Colonial town and its environs. Hiking, arts, crafts, beer and wine and an exquisite food scene will all be on offer for those who wish to come to one of America’s most historic areas.

Some things to see and do in Williamsburg this autumn include:

The new Billsburg Brewery at the James City County Marina will open a tasting room to the public.

Yorktown Market Days at Riverwalk Landing takes place select Sundays into December, where revelers can enjoy food from local farmers, live music as well as works by local artists. Chefs will also be on hand to demonstrate how to prep various dishes.

Williamsburg Fall Arts goes on over seven weeks, offering concerts, gallery tours and other artistic offerings through October.

Williamsburg KOA Campground will offer half-price sites on Thursdays through Halloween weekend. Three-night minimum stay is required, and reservations must include a Thursday night.

The 236th anniversary of Gen. George Washington’s victory over the British at the Yorktown Battlefield, the last major conflict of the Revolutionary War, will be commemorated Oct. 14-15 as part of the Yorktown Victory Celebration.

Colonial Williamsburg will feature “Haunting on DoG Street” 2017, a family-style entertainment of ghost walks and trick-or-treating. Also check out Family Frights at Jamestown Settlement, a Halloween-themed museum night for elementary school children and families Oct. 20-21 at Jamestown Settlement.

For more grown-up thrills, Busch Gardens Howl-O-Scream will again entertain those adults who still like to be scared like kids at the amusement park’s haunted houses, live shows and actors frightening guests in scary costumes. It goes on every Friday and Saturday through Oct. 29.
