Williamsburg Holiday Shopping Made Easy
The holiday season is upon us! Whatever event(s) your family loves to celebrate this time of year, Williamsburg has you covered when it comes to shopping for personal, plentiful friend-, family-, and coworker-pleasing goodies.
If you’re staying at King’s Creek Plantation this month, why not carve out a day to hit all the best shopping spots in the Historic Triangle? Then you can get back to relaxing. Just kidding. Shopping is the definition of relaxing.
Admit it: you get a little thrill every time you stumble upon great outlet shopping. The Williamsburg Premium Outlets have the best selection when it comes to designer and brand name apparel: Kate Spade, Calvin Klein, Coach, J. Crew, Banana Republic, and 130 more. Enjoy the village-like layout, amazing deals on your favorite brands, and a killer new wardrobe (ah, for friends and family, of course).
Get hungry when you shop? Us too! Merchants Square in Colonial Williamsburg marries charming, unique shopping with outrageously good eating—and people watching (you might even spot Father Christmas!). Located right next to Colonial Williamsburg's historic area, Merchants Square is a beautiful 18th-century village that is home to over 40 shops and restaurants. From pretty lingerie, books and stocking stuffers to one-of-a-kind children’s toys, you’re sure to cross names off your list after an afternoon here!
Historic Yorktown + Riverwalk Landing
Yorktown’s Riverwalk Landing sits right on the gorgeous York River waterfront, and was the site of some pretty famous Revolutionary and Civil War-era battles. Today, you can enjoy it for its boutique shops, charming restaurants and photo-worthy scenery. Here you’ll find art, books, jewelry, antiques and home accessories that are sure to please everyone on your list.
New Town is Williamsburg’s up-and-coming live-work-play community. Explore 48 shops and fine restaurants right next to the College of William and Mary. New Town also boasts outdoor concerts, art shows and arts & crafts sales. Discover specialty shops for the outdoor sport and music lovers in your life, as well as bookshops, spas, women and children’s retailers, and more.
Besides offering a plethora of Christmas delights, like Santa’s study, musical performances, ice shows, light shows, and cozy dining choices, Busch Gardens’ Christmas Town has something else we all crave: shopping. Local artisan-produced products and customized gifts can be found throughout the park in the villages of England, Scotland, France, Germany and Italy.
This is the time of year that’s all about family and togetherness. Williamsburg is just the place to bring the people you love most together for a very memorable holiday season. We’d love to be your home-away-from-home this season at King’s Creek Plantation!
