It’s not often you can stroll the same paths once walked by George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, James Madison and others that played leading roles in America’s independence. But that’s only one of the many delights that await you in Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area.
This unique community was the birthplace of the American Revolution and today it stands much as it did more than 200 years ago. The area features more than 500 original and carefully reconstructed public buildings, 40 exhibit buildings, private homes, quaint inns and taverns, shops and 90 acres of public parks and gardens.
That colonial era look and feel carries over to the nearby Westgate Historic Williamsburg Resort.
Westgate Historic Williamsburg offers an ideal setting and location to experience everything the Williamsburg area has to offer! Spacious guestrooms are lavishly appointed with period furnishings. Onsite amenities include an outdoor pool and hot tub, exercise gym, game room and scheduled onsite activities.
Despite its location in the heart of the nation’s largest living history museum, this Westgate Resort offers the modern conveniences and comforts of a fully furnished home amidst lush, garden-like grounds. Though accented by period-style furnishings, the comfortable suites offer ample space, a fully equipped kitchen, large screen TV and much more.
History is a constant throughout the Williamsburg area, but Westgate also puts guests on the doorstep of more modern adventures such as Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Water Country USA, both just minutes away.
With dozens of thrilling rides and attractions such as Griffon – the world’s tallest floorless roller coaster, 10 main stage shows, a variety of authentic foods and shops, and a magical children’s area, Busch Gardens Europe is your ticket to a world-class adventure.
Voted the world’s most beautiful theme park time and time again, Busch Gardens offers something for everyone, from a leisurely stroll through medieval Europe to top notch stage shows.
