Toe-dip vacations are the trend right now. What’s a toe-drip trip? The concept is about getting out — for shorter stays maybe a bit closer to home — and dipping your toe in the water to see what it’s like to travel post pandemic.
Some locations are just naturally suited to toe-drip travel… like Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, VA. Kingsmill is ideal for toe-dip travel because of its easy access accommodations, like independent suites with no elevators, no-contact registration and check-in, and acres of open-air activities for guests of all ages.
Kingsmill Resort is a AAA Four Diamond resort featuring spacious accommodations including stand-alone two-story condominium buildings. Located mere minutes from historic Williamsburg, and adjacent to Busch Gardens, there is much to do in the area. But even if you chose to stay on the resort, Kingsmill offers big family fun just a short drive from DC.
The airy resort has plenty of room to roam with 2,900 acres along the James River, and Kingsmill has a way for you to get out and enjoy the fresh air with lots of activities as well.
Kingsmill likes to bill itself as something for everyone, and I can tell you that it truly is, from luxury rooms overlooking the James River to one-bedroom condos that you can stay in with your dog — that’s right, this place is dog friendly! Kingsmill is known for its championship golf courses, but there are also so many places to wander around with the kids, enjoy a lazy river, get in a great round of golf, or enjoy a pool day. There really is something here for every age and every ability.
Discover Warehem’s pond, located just a short walk from Kingsmill’s full-service marina where jet skis, pontoon boats, kayaks, and paddleboard rentals await guests. Get in your steps with miles of jogging and biking trails. Relax and recharge in the resort’s world-class spa. Or, there’s an arcade for the kids and 15 tennis and two pickleball courts to serve up the fun.
And don’t forget to savor a meal at one of the resort’s five exquisite dining venues… like the James Landing Grille, the place to go for local seafood.
Kingsmill is the easy spring and summer getaway you’ve been looking for. There are plenty of safe outdoor activities like golf, tennis, hiking, biking, and water sports. And honestly, if you’re going to do a toe-dip trip, then you might as well get to dip your toes in the water!
