I'm going to spend a week in a timeshare at Williamsburg Va and need ideas for how a single retired woman might spend time sightseeing anyplace that would let me return to Williamsburg to sleep each evening. I will have my own car and am not afraid of anything (except driving late at night since I don't see that well at night and it makes me tense - and should make all other drivers VERY afraid!!)
My time share people called me with a deal to rent a week very cheap anyplace in their system (going to Vegas in November) and gave me a free week at a limited set of destinations (that's why I'm going to Williamsburg). I know nothing about interesting things to see or do in the area, other than DC, which I visit regularly.
I'm going to be alone the whole week, and usually go to urban areas with lots of tours and people watching/dining/shopping opportunities; like New Orleans, New York City, DC, SanFrancisco, all visited in past 2 years. This is not my usual kind of place and I'm starting to worry I might regret the destination.
I think the historic Williamsburg stuff might hold my attention for about a day or two (and then only if I can find some kind of tour that will take me as a single addition to a group or in a group of singles. All I have found so far is tours for incoming formed groups who book in advance (like church groups or school groups). I know Richmond is close but know NOTHING about that town. I am going to drive to Chincoteague Island one day because I lived there briefly at age 6.
Any other ideas for someone who really likes adding to her memory banks?
