Day One - Our tour begins by departing Florida and traveling to Best Western Plus in Santee SC. This
hotel boasts Southern Hospitality and features lovely surroundings as it is adjacent to the Lake Marion Golf Course. There
is also a great restaurant next door called Captain's Quarters, and tonight's dinner is included here. This restaurant has
long been a favorite of many of our travelers. In the morning, you'll enjoy a deluxe continental breakfast with both hot
and cold options in the hotel's lobby.
Three & Four- After a delicious breakfast at our hotel this morning, we depart for Williamsburg VA. The scenery
continues as we see parts of Richmond VA and then arrive at our home for the next three nights - the Sleep Inn Historic in
Williamsburg VA. You'll love the cozy, modern rooms here featuring refrigerators, microwave, coffee makers, hair dryers and
a 32-inch flat screen television. Other hotel amenities include free WIFI, an indoor heated pool and whirlpool, free coffee
and breakfast each morning.
Our hotel is situated conveniently near Colonial Williamsburg and we will spend a day
visiting this great historic town, as well as a day visiting Jamestown and Yorktown. As you travel through the Historic Triangle-Jamestown,
Williamsburg and Yorktown-you're witnessing more than four centuries of history.
The restoration of Colonial Williamsburg
was a huge project which began in the 1920's and was largely funded by the Rockefeller family and many other individuals and
organizations. Feel the excitement of Colonial Williamsburg, where historical interpreters and actors re-create life on the
eve of the Revolutionary War. On our day in Williamsburg, we will enjoy an authentic Colonial Lunch at Kings Arms Tavern.
"The Williamsburg chapter of American history defines the years when that city was the political, social and cultural
center of Virginia. It's easy to return to the 1770's here, to relive those fascinating times when our country's future was
being debated and decided. Should the Colonies remain part of Great Britain, or should the rumblings of independence be seriously
considered?" Your day in Williamsburg is like stepping back in time. "Stroll among townsfolk, dressed in clothing
appropriate to their status in life, as they go about their daily business. You're just as likely to mingle with an aristocrat
in powdered wig, ruffled shirt and knee breeches as a tradesman who might have fashioned that wig or tailored those breeches.
Follow a fife and drum parade as it marches down Duke of Gloucester Street. Dodge a horse and carriage as it clip-clops its
way along a dusty road. The restoration is so realistic you halfway expect to encounter Thomas Jefferson and Patrick Henry
engaged in a discussion about liberty and personal freedom."
After spending a day exploring Williamsburg, our
next exciting day takes shape as we explore both Jamestown and Yorktown. Discover what John Smith's Virginia colony was like
while you visit Jamestown Settlement's museum exhibits and re-created settings.
"Open the book to the beginning
pages. Chapter 1 starts in 1607 when the first English settlers reached these shores, predating the Pilgrims at Plymouth
Rock by 13 years. When the Virginia Company of London sent the Susan Constant, Discovery and Godspeed to this new land, the
intent was to establish a permanent British colony in the New World." The Jamestown settlement is a living history museum
where visitors can climb aboard a replica 17th-century sailing vessel on the James River where the Discovery, Godspeed and
Susan Constance are moored. "After a 5-month journey across the Atlantic, 104 Englishmen landed on the banks of the
James River. These colonists were ill-prepared for what awaited them, and disease and a severe drought took a heavy toll.
The harsh winter of 1609-10 which came to be known as the "starving time" claimed the lives of two-thirds of the
colonists. With the arrival of much needed supplies, more settlers and a successful crop (tobacco), the colony of Virginia
and its first capital, Jamestown, survived. Thanks to the efforts of such familiar names such as Pocahontas, John Smith and
John Rolfe, the seeds of a nation were sown."
Explore all that Jamestown has to offer, from a re-creation of the
original Jamestown colony to replicas of the three ships which brought colonists to Virginia in 1607. Watch an ongoing archaeological
dig at Historic Jamestowne, which in 2015 made international news when scientific evidence of the remains of four original
VIP settlers were found, garnering coverage by the New York Times and other leading media.
We will also spend a portion
of our day visiting the Yorktown Battlefield, where the British surrender allowed the United States to gain its independence
at long last. This location is where Cornwallis surrendered to George Washington as French and American forces trapped the
British at Yorktown. The British surrender at the Battle of Yorktown ended the American Revolutionary War. Then, find a new
appreciation and understanding of our nation's beginnings at the Yorktown Victory Center, where you can explore re-creations
of a Continental Army encampment and 1780s farm. The exciting start of our country you have experienced while visiting historic,
Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown will remain in your memory for a long time to come!
Day Five - After immersing ourselves in the early history of our country,
it is time to head back toward Florida and our home for tonight is the Best Western Plus in Santee SC, again. Same amenities
as described in Day One.
Day Six - After
enjoying our final breakfast of this tour, we will resume our travel back to St. Petersburg. We'll make appropriate stops
for rest breaks and lunch today as we journey back home with our memories of visiting America's Historic Triangle! Thank
