- Roy J. from Mansfield Center, CT
I 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!
