Summer’s heating up, in Williamsburg – even as we are winding down to August. If you’re looking for ways to cool down and still have a great time with family and friends, here are a few suggestions.
— River —
There may be nothing better than a cool dip in a small river – and we’ve got two big ones! Think day-long floats, canoeing, boating, fishing, and kayaking.
— Water Park —
There is a few splash pads at our amusement parks for the children (and the adults who like to get splashed — I am one of them!) And lots of slides and lazy rivers
- Great Wolf Lodge and the indoor waterpark
- Busch Gardens has a few splash zones and splash pad in Elmo’s World
- Water Country USA
- Lazy River at Kingsmill Resort
— Museums —
What do museums have? Consistent temperature. Museums are a little warmer than subterranean 50-something-degrees, and they’re beautiful, creative places to chill out … and maybe learn something new.
- Virginia Living Museum
- Virginia Museum of Natural History
- Colonial Williamsburg
- Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum of Colonial Williamsburg
- DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum of Colonial Williamsburg
- Historic Jamestowne
- Mariners’ Museum and Park
- Muscarelle Museum of Art
- U.S. Army Transportation Museum
- Watermen’s Museum
- Yorktown Victory Center
— Pool —
There isn’t a community that I sell in that doesn’t have a community pool. Some of them are works of art and the perfect place to meet the neighbors and chill out!
