Virginia Beach


I had both my daughters and their husbands together. It was relaxing even though it was in the spring and not very hot yet. Walking and riding rented bicycles on the boardwalk was relaxing. Exploring the areas together was great. The whole reason I own a timeshare is to be able to have adventures with my girls and their families and to keep all the grandchildren connected. One family lives in Maine and the other family is in the Air Force. Family time is too important! What better way to keep the family together than with a timeshare vacation!?

Our first "timeshare" vacation


When we first bought our timeshare, like most people, I was a little skeptical. After trading in our week with RCI we started looking for options for our first timeshare exchange vacation. My wife and I settled on a trip to Virginia to see colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Washington D.C. Our exchange went through and a few months later we were headed up on our first "timeshare" vacation. We were still a little hesitant and doubtful about the whole thing. Would this place be a total dump? Had we been taken for a ride? Was the whole timeshare thing a big sham?

All of our questions and doubts were answered when we checked in to our condo at Powhatan Plantation. When we walked into our unit we were pleasantly surprised. This was a million times better than staying in a hotel. We had 2 bedrooms, a hot tub, a living room, kitchen, etc. We had an amazing week of fun and relaxation, and most importantly, time together. We have been huge fans of our timeshare ever since and have enjoyed 13 years of amazing vacations since!

Making Memories in Williamsburg


Karen P. - RCI Social Media and Marketing NewsI can still remember years back to when I went on a family vacation to Williamsburg, Virginia. We had received an RCI Guest Certificate from a family friend to use her timeshare, so one week during summer break we packed up our car and headed south. We learned so much that week, and had a lot of fun doing it! Colonial Williamsburg really had a way of bringing history to life for my family and me.

Years later, as I’m doing my own vacation planning, Williamsburg is near the top of my “must-see” (or in this case, my “must-return-to”) list. There truly is something for everyone.  The Jamestown Settlement is a rich history lesson about the first permanent English settlement, Busch Gardens features some of the world’s most incredible roller coasters, and the Mystery Dinner Playhouse will keep you guessing “whodunit”.  If you’re feeling especially brave, venture on the candlelit journey through streets of Colonial Williamsburg and listen to some of the famous ghost stories of the area.

I’m interested in reading about some of your own memories from vacationing in Williamsburg or hearing about places I should visit or activities I should do next time I return. Comment below and share a story of your own, or check back throughout the week to read other subscribing members’ tales of history and adventure in this great destination!
