Time to start planning those family vacations. Looking for a place to visit? Try Williamsburg!!
Last year we went to Williamsburg, VA. We had planned a vacation packed with relaxation and fun. Instead, it was filled with exhaustion and joy. Williamsburg has so many things to explore for the entire family.
This was my first family trip since moving back to the east coast. A chance to reconnect with siblings, a niece, and a nephew. We had it all planned out: the dads would get time for a couple of outings, and the moms would get a couple of outings KID FREE. Well, that didn't go as planned, only one husband could make the trip. So the plan for the relaxation was out the window... Ugh.
So let me share what we did do, we made the most of it! We stayed at the Williamsburg Plantation Resort. They had an indoor/outdoor pool, hot tub, spa, multiple playgrounds on location, washer, and dryer, and activities onsite throughout our stay. All of which made life a breeze for finding things to do for the kids, without moving the car and fighting traffic.
Here are a few of our favorite stops with the kids:
Virginia Living Museum
The Virginia Living Museum an excellent place for the kids to explore, learn, and release energy. Yay for that! Kids loved the exhibits and seeking out the animals along the boardwalk trail.
Historic Yorktown Beach, Virginia
A short drive from the resort we enjoyed a day at Historic Yorktown Beach, Virginia. Get there early for it is a small beach. The water is calm, the beach is clean, and the bathrooms are close to the beach (because we know little kids bladders activate without warning).
Warhill Sports Complex
For the rainy days, my sister found the Warhill Sports Complex, which had an indoor laser tag, indoor and outdoor playground, and an indoor climbing wall.
Mid County Park
All I can say... all ages, all fun. The kids loved this park so much we went twice.
For anyone wondering, did we find any great/kid-friendly restaurants? All units at the resort had a full kitchen. So our first stop in the city was to buy groceries. Sounds crazy, it's a vacation, but when you have multiple kids in tow believe me when I say it is much easier to make the meals. We made all our meals, packed lunches, and packed lots of snacks for the kids’ endless hunger.
In the end, we had a blast but next vacation the goal is RELAXATION and FUN! So many places worth checking out in Williamsburg, but we opted for less stress.
