Colonial Williamsburg is one of the USA’s most historic cities, famed for its importance during the American Revolution and a major visitor hub for tourists. The Manor Club at Ford’s Colony on St Andrew’s Drive nestles within a 3000-acre gated community and includes the region’s best golfing and dining options set within extensive manicured gardens.
Its timeshare villas are spacious, two-bedroomed and graciously furnished and decorated, perfect for a family visit as well as for couples and friends travelling together. Master bedrooms have oversized beds and bathtubs, flat-screen TVs and balconies. Kitchens hold the latest appliances including washer/dryers, and internet access is provided, making the Manor Club a true home from home.
If you can tear yourself away from the resort’s swimming pools, games room, sauna, fitness centre and spa, historic Williamsburg is just a short drive away. The major attraction is the city’s pedestrianised Historic Area, a re-creation of the 18th century town during the Revolution, with its actors representing all the famous names in American history and regular cultural events replaying the highlights.
Set at the heart of the capital of the former British colony, Williamsburg’s Governor’s Palace, Capitol Building and other heritage sites give a trip back in time to the birth of America. Peace and quiet, first-class amenities and facilities and a relaxing environment are all highlights of online traveller reviews of the Manor Club.
The city is set on Interstate 64, giving easy access to many of Virginia’s attractions, heritage towns and charming natural beauty. Richmond’s historic downtown is just 85kms away, with its cobblestoned Shockoe Bottom district well worth the trip. The countryside around Ford’s Colony is perfect for scenic drives,
The Richmond National Battlefield Headquarters holds a Civil War museum, and the White House of the Confederacy is another must-see for those fascinated by American history. Exploring as far as the Appalachian Mountains is fun by hired car, and the stunning countryside with its scenic drives is at its best in early autumn.
Norfolk International Airport is the closest larger airport to Williamsburg, offering connections to all the USA’s international hubs, including New York’s JFK and Newark. Self-drive is the best way to explore the region, its historic charms, and its superb natural beauty, and the road system is straightforward and well-maintained. In town, the Historic Triangle Shuttle runs to nearby Yorktown and Jamestown.
