Rich American history and modern day activities, all in the same destination! Start your adventure in Colonial Williamsburg to experience life in the 18th century. More than 20 guided and self-guided tours are offered daily, allowing you to explore the homes and gardens of the settlement’s “residents” and see the wonders of the city. If you’ve grown tired of walking, the Jamestown Discovery Boat Tours offer the only river-based tour boat on the James River at Jamestown Island. Learn about the area and enjoy the sights while your captain navigates your pontoon boat down the river.
Change up the pace with a visit to Williamsburg’s thrilling amusement parks. At Busch Gardens, you’ll find exhilarating rides and roller coasters, performances throughout the park, animal shows, and kid friendly attractions like Land of the Dragons for your littlest travel companions. Over at Busch Gardens’ sister-park, Water Country USA, you can glide your way down one of the park’s mega slides or relax in the free-floating river. KIDsiderate areas here like Kritter Korral have small slides and shallow pools.
If you are traveling sans kids, a journey on the Williamsburg Tasting Trail is one of the tastiest ways to sample the adult beverages Williamsburg has to offer at breweries, distilleries, and even a meadery. Looking to change up dinner plans? Visit the Williamsburg Farmers Market (on Saturdays) and select fresh, seasonal ingredients to bring back to your resort to cook dinner for two in the privacy of your own kitchen.
