With so many exciting Bluegreen resorts to choose from, we decided to put together a list of destinations that can help you get the most out of your fall/winter getaway. Here are a few that you might not have thought of when planning your vacation:
Local vineyards and wineries dot the landscape as well as the homes of three U.S. presidents. Visit Jefferson’s Monticello for a peek into one of our Founding Fathers estates. After your history lesson, sample some salty treats. Each and every chip at Route 11 Potato Chips is homemade, giving this place the right to boast that their chips are the best. Flavors range from Chesapeake Crab to Sweet Potato Chips. Come try some for yourself. Located on over 1,000 acres of rolling hillside and lush pasturelands with a scenic 60-acre lake, Shenandoah Crossing™ resort in the great outdoors is the perfect place for a night under the stars on a deluxe RV pad or luxury Yurt.
Myrtle Beach, SC
Southern hospitality, clean sandy beaches and hundreds of golf courses draw visitors to the most notable city along South Carolina’s Grand Strand waterfront. Of course, there’s more to do than swim, surf and fish in this destination. Spend a day at Family Kingdom Amusement Park for thrill-rides and go-kart racing. Dive into Ripley’s Aquarium of Myrtle Beach to view sea creatures large and small. It’s one of the most popular aquariums in the country. When it’s time to relax and retreat, stay at Harbour Lights™ located on the Intercoastal Waterway; or up the road at Shorecrest Vacation Villas™ I & II in less-crowded North Myrtle Beach.
History lives in Colonial Williamsburg, which takes you back in time to the 1700s. Walk about the nation’s largest outdoor museum and mingle among blacksmiths, saddle makers and apothecaries, all dressed in period garb and ready to engage you and your children in conversation about the times. Nearby in Jamestown, learn the real story of Captain John Smith and Pocahontas at museums, exhibits and monuments. Then visit the Yorktown Battlefield to tread the paths of Revolutionary soldiers in the 1781 battle. Book a room at the colonial-inspired Bluegreen Patrick Henry Square™ just a half block from Colonial Williamsburg or Parkside Williamsburg Resort located across the street from Busch Gardens Williamsburg®.
Tucked into the picturesque Ozark Mountains, Branson is a welcoming family destination where down-home cooking and hospitality are always on the menu. Dubbed the “Live Music Show Capital of the World,” Branson’s 50-plus theaters have more seats than Broadway. All the entertainment is wholesome, good fun, suitable for all ages. Silver Dollar City is a theme park with fun rides and fascinating artisans demonstrating glass blowing, blacksmithing and the like. The pristine waters of Table Rock Lake, plus nearby Lake Taneycomo, provide an outdoor playground for boating and fishing. The Falls Village™ is just beyond the bustling lights yet still close to nature.
