Colonial Williamsburg Resort celebrated its commemoration in style at Loft & Garden in Rockerfeller Center. It was 75 years ago that John D. Rockerfeller, Jr. founded Colonial Williamsburg as a home away from home for friends. It now welcomes visitors from all over the world including celebrities and heads of state. Did you know that Queen Elizabeth II stayed there on two occasions?
The Colonial Williamsburg Inn has been the crown jewel for 75 years with southern hospitality being a hallmark of the experience. While at the NYC event, Colonial Williamsburg was brought to us. To whet our appetite, local Virginia food and drink were offered for our culinary palette. The chefs were happy to share how each delicacy was prepared.
In addition to southern cuisine, Colonial Williamsburg offers an award-winning spa with five signature contemporary treatments inspired by wellness practices from five centuries. How fitting that the pineapple, a symbol of hospitality and warm welcome, would be a part of your spa experience!
Planning a family vacation to Colonial Williamsburg combines leisure travel with a museum experience. Hospitality and history are combined for a unique adventure that includes the fundamental values of the nation. One exciting look at interactive history is Rev Quest. It is a text-message based adventure where you search for clues and symbols at historic locations. Great family bonding and a unique way to learn about history. The latest quest, The Lion and the Unicorn begins June 18.
As the evening came to a close, I took in the spectacular views of Fifth Avenue and St. Patrick's Cathedral. Although I live in NYC, travelingto Virginia to experience history and hospitality at Colonial Williamsburg is an exciting adventure that I can't wait to experience with my family. History, culture and relaxation; you will find it all in Colonial Williamsburg .
