The drive was about 12 hours for us, but Williamsburg was so worth the distance! If you haven't ever been there, I highly suggest that you go. history buffs would absolutely be able to spend days in Williamsburg and not be the least bit bored. We didn't go to see Colonial Williamsburg or the museums, but we went to Merchant's Square, which is a part of it and we thoroughly enjoyed the day we spent there.
Our first stop was our resort, which was Parkside Williamsburg. It is one of the resorts that is a part of our Bluegreen ownership and I believe that it was a good choice for us. We were fortunate enough to have a 2 bedroom, 2 bath fully furnished condo and the resort was very nice! The staff was friendly and we felt like they cared about us. We had some issues with our keys and they were quickly fixed. The maintenance man was very helpful and professional.
