TRAVEL AND LEISURE
It’s been said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Sometimes they get it right but all too often the design of a golf course is little more than a series of bumps, hills, sand pits and water holes and a small green circle with a flag stuck into the hole in the ground.

In fabled Williamsburg, VA sits the only AAA four-diamond resort in the historic district. They got it right.
Kingsmill has the whole package, from a championship golf course to a resort with upscale dining, a spa, and nearby the Colonial Williamsburg with its pre-Revolutionary War buildings.
