Great Wolf Lodge Williamsburg
Part of the Historic Triangle of Virginia, Williamsburg played a central role during the American Revolution, as American forces gathered there in 1781 to march to Yorktown for the final British defeat. The city pays homage to its patriotic past at Colonial Williamsburg, where tourists stroll past historic buildings as fifers march in Revolutionary War regalia. The Yorktown Battlefield is only a short drive east, where a park ranger guides visitors along the British defense and tells the story of the Revolutionary War's final siege.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.
