Would you believe my little baby turns a year old this summer?! No time in my life has ever passed more quickly, in large part because we're so busy with the big boys as well. It's total chaos but I wouldn't change a thing. Except, of course, carving out more alone time with Leo! Fortunately, as we approach the baby's birthday, he's becoming more independent and I can imagine leaving the kids with the grandparents for a romantic couple's getaway for the first time.
While many people know Greater Williamsburg as a great family destination, Greater Williamsburg, which includes Jamestown, Williamsburg, and Yorktown, is also the perfect couples retreat. In one vacation, you can experience a broad range of exciting and relaxing activities from luxurious spas and championship golf resorts to award-winning art galleries and farm-to-table eats.
I remember visiting Greater Williamsburg as a child and when I was in high school. I was a history major and almost attended William & Mary so I have very fond memories of my trips. Busch Gardens Williamsburg, a gorgeous theme park, of course stands out in my mind. There's also a National Park, a world-class archaeological site, and for history buffs like myself, the brand-new American Revolution Museum at Yorktown.
For my true Glamamoms, Greater Williamsburg offers everything from chic boutiques at High Street and New Town to the largest outlet mall in Virginia, Williamsburg Premium Outlets. Since the area is sandwiched between the James, York and Chickahominy Rivers, it's as scenic as it is sporty. If you're looking to connect more with nature, Greater Williamsburg offers a variety of outdoor activities like biking, hiking, paddle boarding, kayaking, and zip lining.
For the foodies, Greater Williamsburg is where America learned to eat and drink. The country’s first settlers planted vines for wine and brewed beer almost as fast as they built forts, houses and churches. There's the Williamsburg Tasting Trail where visitors can enjoy breweries, distilleries, and Virginia’s largest winery, all dedicated to the craftsmanship, hands-on approach and high production standards of adult beverages. Farm-to-table is also a way of life in Virginia. Farms, smokehouses, rivers, and offshore waters provide local restaurants with fresh ingredients and serve as inspiration for menus.
Do I have you itching for a romantic trip to Williamsburg? Yeah, me too!
