Well, at least our new gaming space is going to be huge!
We have moved to a newer, nicer, larger hotel in Williamsburg, with a really outstanding convention space, and are looking to fill up with great games. Considering coming, playing, refereeing, shopping, or just soaking up the gaming goodness.

Williamsburg, Virginia
Memorial Day Weekend

Game Registration is now live!
Special hotel rates (as usual).

If I didn't have to get on 95 South I'd attempt it. Getting to Fredericksburg for Historicon is bad enough!

you could do 301 to 17 to 64. Pretty scenic route, maybe a little longer but not much. We go this way from Baltimore…

And if there is I-95 traffic, even just a whiff, then taking 17 is shorter (in terms of time)

Larry R, I used to take US 29 N to I64, then to I-81,
then N to US 30 to Lancaster for H'con.

You could come down I-81 to I-64 and then a straight
shot to Williamsburg.

Longer in distance, but almost 100 % interstate the
entire trip.

Avoids all that I-95 carp (DC, Baltimore, N Virginia)

For F'burg, cut the trip short at US 17 and get to
I-95 that way (misses DC, etc.)

Another vote for 3/301. Come down to the Baltimore Beltway however you please. Bypass 95 in favor of 97. 97 to 3/301. Down the west shore of Maryland. There is a $6 USD toll bridge into Virginia. After that there are lots of alternatives that are pretty much a wash. 301 to the Richmond beltway, then 64 into W'burg. My preference is 301 to 17, thru Tappahannock, down to Va 33, The Lewis B. Puller Memorial Hwy, thru West Point, then choose your route from there. 60 or 64 it's a bit of a wash.

This route is not fast. It's a pleasant leasurely route that offers tons of scenery and lots of places for pit stops. It should be longer than 95, but my few tries of using 95 were consistent nightmares, so I'm unconvinced in the long run.

Fwiw.
