Stay at Greensprings Vacation Resort in Williamsburg, VA
Greensprings Vacation Resort - Williamsburg, VA
Resort on Former Plantation Close to Historic District
“Caesar had his Brutus, Charles his Cromwell, and George III may profit by their examples." These fighting words were uttered by Patrick Henry over cries of “treason” as he denounced British tyranny during a Virginia assembly in 1765. Instead of being arrested, however, he went on to catalyze the American Revolution. You can still listen to Patrick Henry debate colonial rights today—sort of—at Williamsburg’s reconstructed brick capitol building. This Patrick Henry is an actor, of course, one of several appearing in daily historical reenactments in the historic district, where visitors can see sophisticated representations of daily life in the colony and in pre-colonial Native American tribes.
About 5 miles west you'll find Greensprings Vacation Resort on the grounds of a former plantation. It's a good home base for exploring the area’s historic attractions, but there's also plenty of onsite recreation. Amenities include floodlighted tennis courts and indoor and outdoor pools. Most guest rooms have their own electrice fireplaces and private jetted tubs.
The resort sits right next door to the Williamsburg National Golf Club, which has a Jack Nicklaus–designed course hailed by Golf Digest as one of the 10 best courses you can play in Virginia.
Williamsburg, Virginia: Art and Entertainment in Historic Colonial Town
Part of the Historic Triangle of Virginia, Williamsburg played a central role during the American Revolution—American forces gathered there in 1781 to march to Yorktown for the final British defeat. The city pays homage to this patriotic past in a living museum where fifers march in Revolutionary War regalia and costumed actors portray everyday colonists.
Historians have carefully preserved and restored 88 original 18th-century structures within the town; buildings of note include the opulent Governor’s Palace, built in 1722 to house the British governor, and the residential home of George Wythe, the first Virginian patriot to sign the Declaration of Independence. Yorktown Battlefield is only a short drive east; there, a park ranger guides visitors along the British defense and tells the story of the Revolutionary War's final siege.
Back in Williamsburg, the 18th-century-style specialty boutiques along Merchants Square sell everything from whimsical toys to hand-cooked Virginia peanuts. In addition to its historic sites, Williamsburg boasts a thriving artistic community, with original folk art and paint-by-number self-portraits of the Founding Fathers displayed at several galleries and art exhibits throughout the city.

The Groupon Guide to: Where Babies Come From
Having “the talk” with your child can be awkward—especially if your child is still too young to understand the nuances of human reproduction or, worse, is a giggler. Postpone the difficult conversation a few more months with one of these classic explanations about where babies come from:
- Babies are dropped down the chimney by storks who swoop down and steal them from other families.
- Babies are hatched from the cabbage patch, so if you think about it, eating vegetables is essentially cannibalism.
- Babies are assembled at the hospital and wrapped tightly in a blanket until all the glue is dry.
- When a mommy and a daddy love each other very much, their psychic harmonics produce an cytoplasmic egg that must be kept in a dark closet for nine months.
- Babies are an invention of the celebrity-obsessed media to sell magazine covers of pregnant starlets.
