Inspired by the TV drama Jamestown - visit the Historic Triangle of Colonial Virginia

Washington DC  - Welcome to America's capital! Washington, DC is a cosmopolitan capital city, packed with famous sights and free attractions and home to some of the world's best-known museums and galleries, including the Smithsonian Institution, and the International Spy Museum. Combine this with hip new restaurants and bars, stunning hotels, great nightlife, live music, theatres, charming neighbourhoods and terrific shopping options and you have a fantastic start to your trip through the Capital Region.
Baltimore  - Known as "Charm City". After close to three hundred years of history, this city can deliver more fun-filled days (and romantic evenings) to make any stay memorable. Visit Baltimore's Inner Harbor, the Top of the World Observation Level and Museum in the World Trade Center, explore the inside of the World War II submarine Torsk and visit sharks, dolphins, sea turtles and thousands of other aquatic animals at the National Aquarium. Check out the city's fantastic restaurants, and the lively restored area of Fells Point, where many old bars and pubs have been restored and  you can sample the world-famous Chesapeake Bay cuisine - it doesn't get any better than that!
Williamsburg - Colonial Williamsburg is the most extensively restored 18th century town in the US. So compelling and complete is the restoration that visitors feel they are in a crown colony 300 years ago. Historical interpreters and actors re-create life on the eve of the Revolutionary War.
Jamestown - A similar sensation occurs on Jamestown Island where America's first English settlement was established. Observe an archeological dig and the original fort at Historic Jamestowne or see the historic ships in the shipyard.
Yorktown - Travel to the Yorktown Battlefield, where the British surrender allowed the United States to gain its independence at long last. Then find a new appreciation and understanding of the nation’s beginnings at the American Revolution Museum, where you can explore re-creations of a Continental Army encampment and 1780s farm.
