The list of the most popular, favorite and most visited attractions in or around Williamsburg, also contains:
>> Busch Gardens, which is not a botanical garden, as its name suggests, but a fun, exciting and thriving amusement park that features attractions, rides and recreational activities for the entire family.
The park's newest addition is Europe in the Air, which is a high-tech simulator that takes guests on a fun-filled journey across the terrain, over the seas and through the air over Europe.
Other popular attractions, at the park, include: the Kinder Karussel, Turkish Delight, Loch Ness Monster and Rhine River Cruise.
>> Ripley's Believe It or Not! Museum and 4D Theater, perhaps, Williamsburg's strangest attraction, home to a vast array of curiosity-arousing oddities such as the 500 lb. gorilla made entirely out of nails, or the two-headed magpie perched right over a two-headed kitten.
Here, visitors will see exhibits from the world of science and illusions, hands-on interactive displays, videos, and state of the art special effects, all set in exotic themed surroundings, including spooky graveyards, lush jungles, and scenes of natural disaster.
>> Presidential Pet Museum, founded in 1999, a museum that highlights past and current White House Pets, serving as a repository, preserving information, artifacts, and items related to the Presidential Pets.
The museum is open to the public and it offers more than 500 items of interest, which are displayed for lovers of pets, Presidents and pet trivia.
