Residential Development Will Replace Spotswood Golf Course

Interesting news! Colonial Williamsburg president Cliff Fleet has announced that the Spotswood par-3 golf course, part of the Golden Horseshoe Golf Club, will be developed into a residential neighborhood in close proximity to Merchants Square, the College of Williams & Mary and other downtown Williamsburg amenities. That will leave the Golden Horseshoe with two highly regarded 18-hole golf courses, the Green and the Gold. In an email to Golden Horseshoe members, Fleet said the nine-hole Spotswood course "has been underutilized for many years,” and that its land would be redeveloped “into a high-quality, walkable” neighborhood that will sit adjacent the Williamsburg Inn and the Golden Horseshoe club. No timeframe was announced for the project, which Fleet wrote is in the very early stages of planning. Fleet said Colonial Williamsburg believes “this initiative will significantly enhance Williamsburg as both a destination and a community.” Thoughts?

Things To Do In Williamsburg When It's Hot

The air is hot and humid these days and if you are like me air conditioning is wonderful! What else is there to do now that the streets are radiating heat and your skin drips with sweat? I have a list of things the family does!

Find a Pool: One Preferably in the Shade

Having a pool to dip into is great but having one in the shade is even better. Many neighborhood pools are open to the elements but there are a couple that have nice shady areas. Although you must be a member of these pools, Williamsburg Community and Indigo Park pools are shady when you need them to be and allow sunshine when you are in need of a tan. Water Country USA is also open to the public from May 18th until September 2. Enjoy the large shade areas the park offers and cool off in one of the twelve rides. We love Aquazoid and The Wild Thang.

Grab Lunch and Movie at Movie Tavern at High Street

Enjoy great food and a movie inside the Movie Tavern at High Street. See a new release or enjoy Retro Movie nights on Tuesday, Wendsday and Thursday. Think outside of the popcorn box and sink your teeth into the Margharita Pizza with a homemade, thin crust that is to die for. The Game Day Platter is great to share with the little ones or just the two of you. With a vast kids menu sure to please any picky eater, you are rest assured they will enjoy the food too. Why not have a beer or a glass of wine either? You deserve it!

Jamestown Settlement is a great adventure. This is where America's First Permanent Colony is! You are where is began for The United States of America. Why not check it out? Inside is an expansive gallery of artifacts, learning fun a films gauranteed to keep the entire family happy. You can also trek outside and board three replica ships that sailed from England to Virginia in 1607. You can also see how the Powhatan Indians lived in recreated village and how the English survived in a replica fort. Make sure you are dressed cooly for these exhibits and carry a water bottle with you. Beware of a large boom that may startle you, I'll leave it at that.

Get a Mani-Pedi

Relax inside and scrub away rough feet and callasus. We are loving french tip and black at the moment for colors. Enjoy the massage chair and don't forget if the chair stops, you can always get it started again. After your feet are done, daydream while your nails are buffed and shined. A clear coat is perfect for summer or try a daring neon!

Make Sun Tea!

When the sun is beating down and even the thought of boiling water makes you sweat, consider making sun tea. This popular summertime brewing practice involves using the sun's energy to make tea, rather than relying on electricity or gas. Follow these easy steps here.

Enjoy the heat though because before we know it you will have to wear a winter coat again!
