Spring break getaway in Williamsburg Virginia including staying at the Williamsburg Inn

Looking for a spring getaway that has something for the entire family? Then consider Williamburg, Virginia.

Go back in time at Colonial Williamsburg and stand on the same grounds that Thomas Jefferson, Martha Washington, and James Madison once stood. Learn how life was back in those days, take carriage rides, and take a tour of the area. Those with some backbone might even enjoy the after-hours ghost tours.

Art lovers will have plenty to look at in Williamsburg as the expansion of The Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg provides gallery space and improved access to the Dewitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum and the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Art Museum.

An adventure park is a great way to spend time with the family and Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, Virginia has more than 50 rides and attractions to keep the family busy. There are new attractions in the park, including their “All For One” swashbuckling show, Home of Verbolten, a new indoor/outdoor roller coaster, and Griffon, one of the world’s tallest and first floorless dive coasters. The wee ones will enjoy Sesame Street Forest of Fun, a children’s play area featuring Elmo and his Sesame Street friends.

Bring your bathing suit because you’ll want to plunge into Williamburg’s Water Country USA, which is home to more than 40 water slides. Their latest is Colossal Curl, the park’s newest attraction with a combination of funnel and wave elements.

There’s so much to do that you might have to extend your spring break! Try on armor or tour recreations of a Powhatan Indian Village at the Jamestown Settlement and the Yorktown Victory Center.

Of course you’re going to need a place to rest your weary head after a long day of touring and the Williamsburg Inn is the perfect family friendly accommodation (If you’re planning ahead, or your own spring break is a little late, it’s important to know that The Williamsburg Inn will be closed for renovations until late April.) Make sure that you get your complimentary sparkling wine at check-in because you’re on vacation! The rooms are adequately sized, including a 500 square foot room with a comfy king or queen sized bed. For families who need additional space, you can also book a junior or resort suite that provides ample living, dining and bedroom space.

Spring break is a great time to reconnect after a busy school year and a long winter break and Williamsburg, Virginia is a great place to do it.
