Attractions in the Surrounding Area
Most visitors spend at least one full day in Colonial Williamsburg, though history buffs will want to spend more. Other fascinating and fun places can be found within just a short distance from your Williamsburg timeshare.
One of the most popular of these is Busch Gardens, a sprawling theme park that offers a wide variety of rides, attractions and shows. Summertime visitors won't want to miss the fun at Water Country USA with its surfing theme. Several wineries are found in the local area, and these provide chances to sample the regional vintages.
People who haven't had enough American history will want to head out to the Jamestown Settlement, which is the site of the nation's first permanent European colony, and Yorktown, where the British surrendered at the end of the Revolutionary War.
When to Visit
Virginia can be hot and humid in the summer, but this doesn't stop visitors. Spring and summer are among the most popular times to visit. Most visitors are families with children, hoping to experience a living slice of American history. Prices are most likely to be high during these seasons.
However, Colonial Williamsburg can be even more charming in the fall and winter when the weather is mild and crowds are smaller. These are the seasons in which it's more likely to find a bargain on a Williamsburg timeshare.
Advantages of Timeshare Accommodation
With so much to do in the region, it's essential to arrange for excellent accommodations. Fortunately, a Williamsburg timeshare helps visitors to take full advantage of all of the attractions by providing lodgings with a home-away-from-home sensibility. Many of these timeshares offer guests condominiums or villas. These are equipped with private bedrooms and multiple bathrooms so that families and groups will be comfortable. Most of these accommodations boast kitchens to facilitate preparing homemade meals, and some even have a washer and dryer.
A Williamsburg timeshare also is a full-service resort. These are complete with swimming pools and hot tubs. Restaurants may be found on site, and many guests appreciate amenities such as fitness centers, spas and game rooms for the whole family.
A stay in Williamsburg is ideal for travelers who want to get away from the everyday. With historical attractions and superb accommodations, discerning visitors will enjoy every moment of their time here.
