Travelogue

History is what they’re selling at Colonial Williamsburg, but as you’re learning about one of America’s first colonies, you can create your own. There’s a huge variety of lodging choices, ranging from Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star, AAA Five Diamond luxury guests rooms to authentic colonial homes that accommodate every budget. Families and couples alike will delight in the many amenities on offer (tennis, a relaxing spa, and guided tours, to name a few), and of course, there’s also an abundance of great golf. The Colonial Williamsburg Resort’s Golden Horseshoe Golf Club features two 18-hole Jones family-designed courses: The Green (Rees Jones, 1991) and the Gold (Robert Trent Jones Sr., 1963; renovated by Rees in 2017). For family fun, you can take a spin around the short nine-holer, Spotswood, also designed by Jones Sr. After your round, indulge your inner history buff (and entertain the kids!) with over 20 guided and self-guided tours of Colonial Williamsburg, including art museums and spooky “Ghost Walks.” And don’t forget to cap the experience with a leisurely 18th century-style horse-drawn carriage or ox wagon ride.
