WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) -- Colonial Williamsburg is eliminating the worry of weather for visitors to the historic area.

Officials say a new policy offers ticketholders a voucher to be used within the same calendar year if a steady rain falls for more than three hours during the day.

Colonial Williamsburg's Revolutionary City is open every day of the year and remains open during inclement weather.

Officials also are encouraging visitors to explore its indoor attractions, including art museums, the Capitol and the Governor's Palace.

The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation preserves, restores and operates Virginia's 18th century capital of Williamsburg.

Colonial Williamsburg includes numerous restored or reconstructed buildings, among many other attractions.
