Take The Whole Family For A Drive Into The Past: America's Historic Triangle Vacation Package Offers Fun For All Generations
According to Travel Industry Association of America, 30 percent of leisure travelers who are grandparents have taken at least one family vacation with grandchildren. This trend of vacations with extended families has destinations such as America's Historic Triangle offering a flexible mix and match of activities to suit different ages and tastes in the group.
America's Historic Triangle entertains everyone from grandparents to young children and provides an opportunity to explore the events that shaped the nation's history - the planting of America's first permanent English settlement at Jamestown in 1607, the fiery debates on revolution in 1775 at Williamsburg and the climactic campaign of the American Revolution at Yorktown in 1781. Spanning 23 miles across a narrow peninsula between Virginia's James and York rivers, America's Historic Triangle includes three living-history museums - Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown Settlement, Yorktown Victory Center - and two national park sites - Historic Jamestowne and Yorktown National Battlefield.
America's Historic Triangle offers a vacation trip for parents and grandparents looking to enhance their children's education with hands-on learning. Parents are able to incorporate new experiences into their vacation, through visiting historic sites and museums.
"The sites offer a meaningful balance of interactive, fun and insightful experiences where everyone in the family comes away with something special," says Dave Schulte, executive director of the Williamsburg Area Convention & Visitors Bureau. "This package offers a valuable family vacation-both educationally and financially. History comes alive for all ages."
America's Historic Triangle offers more than 10,000 hotel rooms, from economy-minded accommodations to luxury resorts, the area offers one-of-a-kind entertainment venues, along with an excellent selection of restaurants and unbelievable shopping at more than 150 retail and factory outlet stores.
