There is a large monument to the battle here, as well as older homes. There still is a Yorktown town that has a shopping area with antique and tourist shops. The shops did not open until 10am or later so we did not get a chance to go in, but window browsing was just as exciting. Plenty of rabbits for the kids to chase in the open grass fields in the area as well.
The main draw to this park is the driving/bicycle tour of the battle grounds. This tour is extensive with multiple road side historical markers. Unfortunately, there isn't much to see other than fields and forest, but it is still interesting from a historical sense. This tour is what you use your flex ticket for, or get vehicle passes. While there is no one checking to make sure you pay for the tour, it is on your honor.

Your tour guide is full of interesting information, and takes you out into the battlefield, just outside the visitors center. He points out the main areas of the battlefield so you can visualize what it must have been like. Afterward you can buy an inexpensive CD or tape, and take the driving tour of the rest of the battlefield. Many areas you will be require you to get out of your car and take a look around. The driving tour you can do as fast or slow as you want. I would not recommend this for very young children. Kids should be at least middle school age with at least some knowledge of the Revolutionary War to make it interesting.
