WILLIAMSBURG, Va., March 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Williamsburg, Va. and the Williamsburg Inn were named the number one family-friendly spots to discover in the United States by TripAdvisor, in its inaugural 2011 Traveler's Choice Family Awards. Winning destinations were chosen based on the greatest number of recommendations from TripAdvisor reviewers who traveled with family. Top family-friendly hotels were determined from the highest review ratings from those who traveled with family.

These honors recognize Colonial Williamsburg's interactive family programs and hands-on activities that engage parents and children alike in the stories of America's first citizens. With warmer weather on the way and the unveiling of new and exciting programming, spring is the ideal time for families to discover all Colonial Williamsburg has to offer.

For the first time, junior interpreters will have roles in the award-winning Revolutionary City®, making the already-accessible daily street theater program even more exciting. "Live after Five" and its robust schedule of evening programs will allow families to extend the fun and enjoy storytelling, ghost tours, cresset lighting and dancing.

Bringing this historic family experience full-circle is the Spring Bounce Package, available for stays March 25–June 16, 2011. Starting at $305 per night for a family of four, the three-day/two-night package includes:

  • Nightly accommodations at the Williamsburg Woodlands, an Official Colonial Williamsburg Hotel
  • Three-in-one tickets for unlimited general admission to Colonial Williamsburg's Historic Area and Art Museums, Busch Gardens and Water Country USA, valid for up to seven consecutive days

Package pricing is based on a two-night stay in a standard guest room for two adults and two children, with Sunday-Wednesday arrival. Rates vary with check-in day.

This spring, guests are invited to become part of the story. With the Spring Bounce Package, a memorable family vacation is now even more affordable and another reason to experience Colonial Williamsburg.

The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation is a not-for-profit educational institution and cultural destination dedicated to the preservation, restoration, interpretation, and presentation of 18th-century Williamsburg, VA.
