|Holiday season at Colonial Williamsburg (ColonialWilliamsburg.com)|
If you want beauty and flair this Holiday Season, one delightful place for the RV family to visit is Virginia’s Historic Triangle that includes Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown. American History is brought to life in this unique area located midway between Richmond and Virginia Beach, about 150 miles south of Washington, DC.
"Here you’ll find enduring traditions, charming decorations, and a season that still warms the heart." One visit and you’ll quickly see why visitors "come from near and far to take in the festivities while making memories that last a lifetime," promise the folks at the Regional Visitor Center.

There are literally hundreds of RV Short Stops in the Historic Triangle. A few of my favorite stops in Williamsburg were the blacksmith shop, bakery, and live enactments of significant moments of America’s past.
Another fond memory is the hours we spent simply strolling the same paths and streets that George Washington walked. We downed a pint of ale in King’s Arms Tavern. And, we literally gawked at the dozens of magnificently restored buildings.
