Vacation in Virginia this summer and save with CW's value-loaded packages

Memorial Day is around the corner, with sunny days and vacation plans beckoning. Colonial Williamsburg’s value-loaded Summer Saver Package is perfect for families. Starting at $599 for a five-day, four-night stay, the Summer Saver Package includes a variety of Colonial Williamsburg’s best seasonal offerings, from golf to new interactive programs at the Governor’s Palace and Capitol, to fresh menus at Colonial Williamsburg’s restaurants. The package is available May 30-September 2 and includes:

  • Accommodations at the Williamsburg Woodlands for a family of four
  • Daily breakfast

  • Length-of-stay admission to Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area and Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg
  • $100 activities credit

Package pricing is based on availability and occupancy in a standard guest room (two double beds) for two adults and two children (under 17) with Sunday or Monday check-in. Suite upgrade is based on availability at a cost of $50 per night. Friday and Saturday night stays incur an additional charge of $50 per night.

Couples who want to enjoy a few days away together, can take advantage of the Summer Stories Package. Available June 18-Sept. 2, the Summer Stories Package starts at $499 per couple for a three-day, two-night stay and includes:

  • Nightly accommodations at the Williamsburg Lodge
  • Daily breakfast at the Williamsburg Lodge Restaurant
  • Length-of-stay admission to Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area and Art Museums
  • $100 activities card

Starting rate per room is based on double occupancy in a superior guest room, with Sunday through Wednesday arrivals.

The activities card may be applied toward The Spa of Colonial Williamsburg, Golden Horseshoe Golf Club, dining in Colonial Williamsburg’s restaurants or taverns, or shopping at any official, on-site Colonial Williamsburg-owned store. When booking a Summer Package, guests have the opportunity to upgrade their Colonial Williamsburg admission ticket to a Flex, Bounce or Historic Triangle Ticket.

Beginning mid-June guests can experience new, interactive programming at the Governor’s Palace and Capitol. At the Palace, guests will be immersed into the dialogue as the household prepares for a ball to be hosted that night by Lord and Lady Dunmore. Against this backdrop of social activity, guests will consider how British royal authority is coming into increasing conflict with colonial American interests. At the Capitol, guests will experience the day that Virginia’s representatives vote to adopt a declaration of rights. The audience will be actively engaged in a dialogue about issues related to self-governance, freedom of speech and the need for a separation of powers.

This summer, Colonial Williamsburg’s new programs, art exhibitions, golf courses and dining menus will engage the entire family through historic and contemporary settings. The two value-loaded packages make a Colonial Williamsburg vacation even more affordable for summer travel.
