  • KOA Campground Williamsburg
    Families have no shortage of things to do at KOA Campground Williamsburg: Children can frolic among water fountains beside a heated pool (in season) or bounce through the air from two inflatable jumping pads. Families can even work together to pan for gems in an old-fashioned mining sluice for an additional fee. Three generations of the same family have worked for more than 40 years to build this 180-acre wooded campground. It has the classic camping experience mixed in with plenty of modern updates: campers can enjoy a picnic in the communal pavilion, or let their animals socialize in one of the pet playgrounds. Around the park, there's a network of nature trails accessible on-foot or by a raccoon-drawn sled. Throughout the year, the campground also hosts events ranging from outdoor movie screenings to themed weekend parties. At the end of the day, guests can retire to cabins outfitted with bunk-beds or enjoy the tent and RV sites with full hook-ups. Bridging the gap between wilderness and civilization are amenities such as complimentary cable and wireless internet. There's also plenty to see beyond the woods, too: the campground lies in close proximity to attractions such as Colonial Williamsburg and Busch Gardens.

  • Busch Gardens Williamsburg
    Daredevil. This is the title earned by those brave enough to take on Tempesto, Busch Gardens’ high-speed thrill coaster. Riders daring enough to take on Tempesto will race into unbelievably tight turns at up to 63 miles per hour, seemingly defying gravity as they roll through a complete inversion 154 feet in the air. The ride features three launch experiences that send guests backward and forward and flips them upside-down, before finally propelling them through the signature loop-the-loop. Beyond these big-kid rides, Busch Gardens Williamsburg caters to youngsters with its KIDsiderate attractions, including two play areas, Land of the Dragons and Sesame Street Forest of Fun. Little ones can explore, splash, and soar on kid-friendly rides, and meet some familiar faces from Sesame Street. Busch Gardens Williamsburg also boasts multiple venues for both indoor and outdoor shows, such as Celtic Fyre, which celebrates Irish dance, music, and storytelling. Or, for a culinary experience, plan your visit around Busch Gardens Food & Wine Festival, when guests can sample cuisine from around the world not normally served at the park.

  • DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum
    Plenty of utensils and wares decorated tables in 18th-century America, but only a few became a symbol of protest during the Revolution, one of them was the teapot. It's these subtle traces of cultural change that take center stage in the permanent and temporary exhibits at DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum. Here, developments in civilian and military infantry, such as ignition systems and muzzle-loading firearms, signal the progress of 18th-century weaponry, while 1690s-1820s furniture from New England through the Mid-Atlantic highlight developing cultural and regional trends. Though a bulk of the museum's collection—including one of the biggest assortments of British ceramics outside England—was mainly used in the home, some objects were designed for outside the domestic sphere. An original fire engine built in the mid-18th century stands unscathed by flames, and a collection of medals made for George Washington honors the time he beat up that cherry tree. Scholars delve deeper into these and other artifacts during lectures held in Hennage Auditorium.
