Williamsburg, VA (PRWEB) August 14, 2014
The fall is the best time to visit Virginia’s Historic Triangle as mild temperatures and changes in the leaves provide the ideal setting for art strolls, guided tours, fall festivals, ghost walks and fun in the outdoors.
There is plenty on tap and something for everyone in the family. Tour the Porcelain Exhibit by artist Jane Relish, September 1 – 30; visit the art galleries, shops, museums and Historic Freight Shed along the Yorktown Waterfront during the Yorktown Art Stroll, September 29; or take a ghost walk to learn of the spirits still haunt the taverns and historic buildings of Colonial Williamsburg weekly through November 22.
For the slightly more adventurous, check out the Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens Williamsburg, the annual fear fest featuring sinister shows and gruesome creatures. The haunts begin September 13 and continue every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through October 27.
Visitors to Virginia’s Historic Triangle also can travel along the Colonial Parkway to Jamestown Settlement and explore the Powhatan Indian Village. A trip to Yorktown beach and a stroll along the riverfront may also be in order.
For the golfer in the family, Williamsburg’s championship courses – more than a dozen designed by some of most notable course architects – also are best enjoyed during the fall season.
While in the area, families can enjoy accommodations at the all-new DoubleTree by Hilton Williamsburg with its “Sweet Dreams” beds, in-room refrigerator, an assortment of in-room tea and coffee selections and body care products by Crabtree & Evelyn. Guests can also access the hotel’s three in-house restaurants, indoor and outdoor pools, 24-hour Precor Fitness Center, tennis court, basketball court and game room.
In addition, all incoming guests are greeted with a warm, chocolate chip-walnut cookie, an experience exclusive only to the DoubleTree by Hilton brand.
The all-new DoubleTree by Hilton Williamsburg is located in the heart of the Historic Triangle at 50 Kingsmill Road, just a short drive to nearby Jamestown, Yorktown and Colonial Williamsburg. The hotel also is the closest Williamsburg hotel to Busch Gardens and the only to offer curbside drop off and pick up at Busch Gardens, thereby eliminating the time to access the park’s tram to the entrance and back to the car.
Other local attractions include Busch Gardens, Williamsburg Premium Outlets and the Williamsburg Pottery, one of Virginia’s top tourist attractions where thousands of bargain hunters come from all over the world to shop.
DoubleTree by Hilton Williamsburg is owned by Waramaug Hospitality LLC and a private investment group in a joint venture with Interstate Hotels & Resorts which also operates the hotel.
