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.


Day Two, 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 you for choosing Travel Is Fun Tours!
