Or tee up and let it rip at one of the region’s amazing golf courses.  Enjoy farm-to-table freshness, hand-made beverages, wineries, colonial taverns, and outstanding cuisine.  Shop for goods you can’t find at the mall, spike your adrenaline at a theme park, bike along a nature trail, relax at Yorktown Beach, or do all of the above.  Named one of "The South's Best Small Towns" by Southern Living's readers in 2023, Williamsburg offers ample accommodation options to satisfy every traveler and budget.

    Site Statement / Cultural Acknowlegement

    The American Society for Rickettsiology acknowledges that Colonial Williamsburg, site of the 2024 meeting, was the traditional homeland of Native Americans that included the Cheroenhaka (Nottoway), Chickahominy, Eastern Chickahominy, Mattaponi, Monacan, Nansemond, Nottoway, Pamunkey, Patawomeck, Upper Mattaponi, and Rappahannock tribes and later a center of slavery. By selecting Williamsburg, ASR is not undermining the impact that colonialism and slavery have had, and continue to have, in the livelihood and success of under-represented groups. We recognize that slavery and colonialism have resulted in the unfair repression of members of these groups, including important members of our society and the scientific community. We understand that the reenactment of colonial times can be upsetting and harmful to some members of our community.  With this knowledge, we would like to encourage all members of the society to learn more about the lingering impacts this time in our history has on BIPOC members of our community.  Further, we encourage you to look into the following resources for more information on this complicated history.

    There are opportunities to learn about the American Indians and why we use the term American Indian, and the enslaved people of Williamsburg whose stories are a part of the rich history of Virginia. During the meeting, we have breaks in the scientific program to allow participants to learn more about the history through tours.
