Williamsburg/Jamestown/Charlottesville


Saturday, July 7th:

WASHINGTON, DC to JAMESTOWN, VA:  170 miles – 3 hrs

Depart Washington Capital Hilton Hotel at 9 am.  Our journey today takes us south east to the historic town of Jamestown.  We anticipate a short morning break before continuing on to Jamestown in time for lunch.  Jamestown has been described as a “Place Of Many Beginnings”.

Walk in the steps of Captain John Smith and Pocahontas where(sic) a successful English colonization of North America began. Despite early struggles to survive, the 1607 settlement evolved into a prosperous colony. As the colony expanded, the Virginia Indians were pushed out of their homeland. In 1619, the arrival of Africans was recorded, marking the origin of slavery in English North America.  https://www.nps.gov/jame/index.htm

On arrival into Jamestown you will have at least three hours to experience this colonial village.  You will step back in time, wandering through the streets, stores, and workshops. It won’t be long before you will be immersed into the daily re-enactments of colonial events that occurred more than 400 years ago.

Lunch today is independent and there is an eatery in the village.

JAMESTOWN, VA TO WILLIAMSBURG, VA:  10 miles – 30 minutes

Mid-afternoon return to the coach for a transfer to Williamsburg our home for the night.  Williamsburg is known for is great food, awarding winning wines and boutique (small batch) beers.  You won’t need to wander far to experience the local hospitality.  This evening is at leisure for you to spend time walking through this quaint town.

Williamsburg played a significant role during the American Revolution which was also referred to as the American war of Independence (1775-1783). America’s independence from Great Britain was a significant turning point in world history.

Sunday, July 8th:                    

WILLAMSBURG, VA to CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA:  120 miles – 2 hrs

Today breakfast has been included before a departure at 1 pm.  Anticipate an arrival into historic Charlottesville at around 3 pm.  On arrival check into your hotel.  The rest of the day is at your leisure.

Breakfast this morning is included. 

Monday, July 9th:

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA

This morning after a leisurely breakfast, meet our local tour guide for an inspired tour taking in historic homes and gardens including the famous Monticello home, The Virginia State Capitol, and the University of Virginia founded by Thomas Jefferson in 1819.  A highlight today is the Rotunda located on the original grounds of the University. The Rotunda was designed by Jefferson and inspired on the Pantheon in Rome.

After the tour we recommend you take in an optional lunch at the local Tavern that dates back to 1784.  The Tavern has a buffet lunch that arguably has the “single best fried chicken anywhere”.

Breakfast this morning is included.
