LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / January 31, 2017 / Take a step back in time with a stay at The Historic Powhatan Resort in Williamsburg, Virginia. This Diamond Resorts property combines modern appointments with colonial-era charm. The restored manor, built originally in 1735, provides a quiet retreat for guests and their families. All rooms come furnished with home conveniences, such as a fully-equipped kitchenette, washer/dryer, and two twins or one Queen-sized bed. Guests can take advantage of the Powhatan Bar & Grill for a bite to eat, or plunge into the resorts pools to refresh after a day of exploring. The grounds provide all the entertainment a family needs with tennis, basketball, a fitness center, and fishing.
Although a stay at this Diamond Resorts property can be a vacation in itself, guests shouldn’t miss an opportunity to discover all the Historic Triangle offers. Established in 1632, Williamsburg was a major hub for European settlers in the New World. This area has been preserved and refurbished to reflect this bygone era. A walk down cobbled streets offers views of Revolutionary War reenactments and period-dressed colonists. Guests and their families can see firsthand how life was for the colonists with trade demonstrations, such as blacksmithing, weaving, printing, and shoemaking. Souvenir shops offer hand-made toys and wares of the time period, allowing visitors to take history home.
This area is a living museum, but that doesn’t mean visitors are stuck in the past. Busch Gardens amusement park provides tourists with roller-coaster ride thrills, entertaining dining options, and fun for all ages. In the summer months, guests can cool off with a trip to Water Country U.S.A. featuring wave pools, water slides, and lazy rivers. For a relaxing afternoon, guests can venture to The Williamsburg Winery, which provides tours and tastings of Virginia-made wine. Alewerks is one of the areas up and coming craft beer breweries and provides tours of the beer-making process.
Members, owners, and guests of Diamond Resorts should find time to take advantage of the area’s other attractions. Jamestown and Yorktown, which are steeped in Colonial and Civil War history, and also offer premier examples of preserved architecture from these time periods. A drive along Colonial Parkway is the best way to get there, as visitors travel down winding roads through beautiful wooded areas buffering the James and York Rivers. The woods come alive with color in the early autumn and spring as guests motor through 400 years of American colonial history.
