The Williamsburg Yorktown Daily (WYDaily) newspaper reports that Williamsburg remains one of the best travel destinations in the country, according to Travel + Leisure magazine. 

The magazine ranks Williamsburg at No. 13 on its recently released top-15 list of American destinations alongside cities such as Honolulu, San Francisco, Washington, D.C. and Austin. 

Travel + Leisure bases its ratings on responses it receives from readers about their travel experiences. Travelers ranks cities on sights, landmarks, culture, cuisine, shopping and overall value. 

Williamsburg scored 80.51 points, while No. 15 Washington, D.C. scored 80.09. Charleston, S.C., with 87.04 points, was the highest-ranked city. 

Williamsburg also appeared on another Travel + Leisure list last spring: the best places to travel to in July. Not to be outdone, the New York Times also featured Williamsburg and the Historic Triangle in its “52 places to Go in 2019” list.

The latter article highlighted the events, still ongoing, surrounding the celebration of the 400th anniversary of Jamestown’s first legislative assembly in the New World.
