Tips / Destination

While some people may not be ready to travel just yet, some itch to get back on the road and explore. For the latter category, consider adding Williamsburg, Virginia, to your list of must-see destinations.


Greater Williamsburg is an ideal weekend getaway for families and travelers of all ages.


Jamestown Settlement boasts some new exhibits for travelers to explore, including a special exhibition called “FOCUSED: A Century of Virginia Indian Resilience.” The exhibit gives travelers an inside look at the resiliency of Virginia’s Indian population, from the passage and repeal of the Racial Integrity Act in 1924, to the contemporary efforts of 11 Virginia tribes to receive state and federal recognition.


Next, stop by the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg to explore the new installation, “Restoring Williamsburg: The Architecture of Williamsburg,” which features architectural fragments from existing structures and buildings lost to time. The collection showcases nails, bricks, framing and doors to wallpaper, plaster and paint samples.


Another stop on your list should be Pop-Up Archaeology! in Colonial Williamsburg, featuring new discoveries from the First Baptist Church archaeology project. The archaeology project was designed to locate the remains of the Nassau site of the first Baptist Church.


Once you complete the historic parts of Williamsburg, head to Busch Gardens for new thrills. The world’s fastest multilaunch coaster, Pantheon, debuts later this year providing unexpected twists and turns for coaster lovers to enjoy. Keep an eye out for the Mardi Gras celebrations Jan. 29–Feb. 28; the St. Patrick’s Day Celebration March 5–28; and the Food & Wine Festival April 2–May 23.
