Colonial Williamsburg Offers Virginia Residents Two Hotel Nights for the Price of One

It pays to be a Virginian this August, as Colonial Williamsburg offers a late summer travel special of a second night free in one of its official hotels and length-of-stay admission passes for guests staying in the room.

August is an ideal time for Virginians to re-discover Colonial Williamsburg’s seasonal offerings, from evening activities spanning storytelling, ghost tours and cresset lighting, to RevQuest: Sign of the Rhinoceros an alternate reality game of spies, where clues are texted to players and the mystery plays out in the Historic Area. Swimming, biking, golf, tennis and nature trails are the perfect complement to the shopping, dining and programming Colonial Williamsburg offers for an end-of-summer getaway in Virginia’s tidewater region, less than a gas tank away for most Virginia residents.

The two-for-one offer for Virginia residents is available through Aug. 31, 2011, with Sunday–Wednesday arrival at the Williamsburg Inn, Colonial Houses-Historic Lodging, Williamsburg Lodge, Woodlands Hotel and Suites and Governor’s Inn. The offer may not be used for existing reservations and may not be combined with other offers or packages. Proof of Virginia residency must be provided at check-in. The special Virginia resident hotel and ticket offer is available by calling 1-800-HISTORY (447-8679).

Colonial Williamsburg offers more than 1,000 guest rooms among five hotels, including the landmark Williamsburg Inn, four historic dining taverns and six other restaurants, a full-service 20,000-square-foot spa, 45 holes of golf at the Golden Horseshoe golf courses and 67,000 square feet of conference space centered at the renovated and expanded Williamsburg Lodge. Purchase of Colonial Williamsburg products and services supports the Foundation’s preservation, research and educational programs. Philanthropic support by individuals, corporations, and foundations benefits the educational mission of The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.
