8 Things House Republicans Can Do At Their Fancy Retreat Next Week

House Republicans will travel next week to Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, Va., for a three-day retreat. They’ll have plenty of ways to spend their free time.

They could play some golf.

The resort boasts three courses designed by Arnold Palmer, Pete Dye, Curtis Strange and Tom Clark.

Segway tours are fun.

Billed by the resort as an “amazing adventure.”

So is boating.

“Kayaks, paddleboats, standup paddleboards and Jon boats are available for daily rental at the Marina,” according to the resort’s website.

With 15 courts on site, there will be plenty of space for lawmakers to practice their serves.

Or hit the gym for a more strenuous workout.

Should Rep. Paul Ryan take a break from his P90X regimen, there’s Zumba (and more!) to fill the void.

Wind down at the spa after a long day.

The “Kingsmill Signature Experience” includes six hours of pampering — which still leaves plenty of time later to hash out the direction of the Republican Party.
