With its typically mild, temperate weather, Colonial Williamsburg is a destination that’s great to visit year-round. Most families visit the area during summer, Thanksgiving, Christmas and spring, when school is out of session; avoiding these periods may offer some savings on room rates at the Williamsburg Lodge. The Golden Horseshoe Golf Club has a one-week summer golf program for kids of all ages and is popular for young guests. The holidays are also an ideal time for family visits with holiday shopping, musical performances, and the town’s Grand Illumination firework show in Colonial Williamsburg. Fall, for leaf peeping, and winter, for romantic rendezvous, are popular times for couples to getaway and stay at the lodge. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel's 45,000-square-foot conference center is busy with business activity in the fall, early spring and early summer. And, although wedding season typically peaks in spring and fall, weddings are popular year-round at a variety of venues on the lodge’s picturesque grounds.
