“the orientation point for your visit to Yorktown”
The Yorktown Visitor Center is the orientation point for your visit to Yorktown and Yorktown Battlefield. At the visitor center information desk, you can obtain a park brochure with maps and information, an orientation to the park, and an opportunity to schedule your visit around the various interpretive programs going on throughout the day. The entrance fee to Yorktown Battlefield is collected at the visitor center. The fee, which covers the visitor centers at Yorktown and at Jamestown, historic houses, the battlefield, tour roads and interpretive programs is $10.00 per adult (age 16 and older). Admission is good for seven days from the date of purchase. The National Park Service America the Beautiful Pass, Senior Pass and Access Pass are accepted. Commercial tour companies should contact the park in advance for fee information.
So I get really jazzed about history and I was very excited to go to Yorktown. The visitor's center is nice. It has a theater that shows a short film that explains what happened there (it's a little dated but still educational) along with a gift shop and a few artifacts. We didn't walk around the battlefield, but Yorktown does have a touristy little district nearby with restaurants and shops.
