The Historic Triangle includes the cities of Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown. These three destinations included a great deal of history. Williamsburg is a much larger city than either of the other two and makes a great place to set up your base.
We chose the Fairfield Inn on Richmond Rd this year and the rate of $63 a night made staying here for 5 days very affordable. Our room was a studio.
Last year we stayed at the Williamsburg Lodge which is lovely and is located right in Colonial Williamsburg. Expect to pay quite dearly for that convenience. I stayed there on a media rate which was still more than $100 per night.
You could spend 5 days just visiting Colonial Williamsburg so if you want to do everything in just a week, you need to allow at least a full day each for Yorktown and Jamestown. You will need a day to do Busch Gardens as well. Unfortunately we visited when Busch Gardens was closed so we didn't get to visit there.
