Perhaps nowhere else does the exciting story of America’s past come to life more vividly than in Virginia’s Historic Triangle. Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown are among the most popular and historically rich vacation spots in the United States, and are among the oldest townships in the New World.
As a guest at Colonial Crossings, you will want to spend the day in theColonial Williamsburg Historic Area, the former Capital of Virginia and Jamestown, the first permanent English settlement in the New World. Colonial Williamsburg is the world’s premier living history site, an entire town that has been restored to the days when Williamsburg was the political and economic center of the Virginia colony. Here visitors encounter a living community where merchants sell their wares, craftspeople ply their trades and brave patriots whisper plans for revolution.
Jamestown is where America began when, in 1607, a few hardy souls carved out of the wilderness the first permanent English settlement in the New World. 2007 was America's Anniversary as Jamestown celebrated its 400-year anniversary.
Our nations’s freedom was won in nearby Yorktown, where General George Washington defeated England’s General Cornwallis in 1781 in the decisive battle of the American Revolution.
