Gypsy Gal Adventures Offers Getaways For Women

WILLIAMSBURG-Sydney Duvall officially opened Gypsy Gal Adventures on Wednesday, December 1. Her local tour company provides women with the opportunity to join other like-minded individuals in the community on day-trip excursions.

Creating a space for women to connect with one another came naturally to Duvall. She had the opportunity to travel often while working in film with PBS. After her partner passed away four years ago, she decided to search for a career that focused on travel and uniting women in the community with one another.

Duvall said she chose the women-only format to provide a safe opportunity for ladies to travel solo or with friends. “Many years ago, I reclaimed my life and began to follow my own compass,” said Duvall. “I had always been a very serious person.” These days, she’s focusing on getaways that are designed to create a sense of playfulness and fun.

Groups of up to eight people will travel to destinations in a hand-painted van created by Michele LeBlanc-Piche, a local intuitive artist and friend of Duvall’s. The van was a collaboration of Duvall’s vision and LeBlanc-Piche’s artistic talent.

December’s tours include Christmas in Williamsburg/Wine & Glasshouse Day Trip, Lazy Daisy Fredericksburg/Spotsylvania Day Trip, Celebrate the Spirits: Whiskey/Wine/Beer Day Trip, and Lazy Daisy Hull St./Short Pump/Cooper’s Hawk Winery Day Trip. Prices range from $55 to $115.

Duvall welcomes customers’ suggestions for future day-trip destinations. In addition to visiting historical towns of Virginia, she hopes to explore self-care destinations that incorporate dance, art, and cooking classes. “It’s exciting creating this different space for women where we can all cut loose a little bit and experience something new,” said Duvall.

Gypsy Gal Adventures is located at 1490-5A Quarterpath Rd., Williamsburg. For more information on day-trip adventures, please call (757) 272-5878 or click here.
