What's there to do in Williamsburg?
Whether you're a history buff, a lover of the great outdoors, an avid shopper, or a connoisseur of fine dining, this is the place for you.
Bike along all 20 plus miles of the Colonial Parkway, Freedom Park's 15 plus miles mountain bike trails, or the completed portion of the Virginia Capital Trail which eventually will stretch from Jamestown to Richmond. Check out the Williamsburg Area Bicyclists for more information.
Relax with friends at the Green Leafe on "Pint Night," or try the wine smoothies at Aromas, or sample the latest French cuisine at Le Yaca. (P.S., there are more than 100 restaurants in greater Williamsburg.)
Enjoy campus events. Attend a lecture on classical architecture. Stroll through an art exhibit at the Muscarelle Museum. Enjoy an outdoor concert at Lake Matoaka Amphitheater.
In the mood for a day trip? An hour down the road, you'll find lots to do in Richmond (to our west), Norfolk (to our east), or Virginia Beach (further to our east). You can also take the free Jamestown-Scotland ferry to Surry County where you will be able to "pick-your-own" produce at College Run Farms or spend the day at a variety of attractions including Bacon's Castle or Chippokes Plantation.
Get outdoors! Canoe, kayak, hike, or bring your dog to Waller Mill Park. Chickahominy Riverfront Park offers boating, fishing and easy access to the Virginia Capital Trail. It is also the practice site of the William & Mary Rowing Team. York River State Park has hiking, biking and equestrian trails as well as fishing and boating.
Golf. According to Golf Guides USA, Williamsburg is "one of the hottest new golf resort areas on the East Coast."
Shop at the Farmer's Market in Merchants Square on Saturday mornings and pick up some organic fruits and vegetables, a hot coffee, or the makings for a bison burger.
Bowling anyone? Try Xtreme Bowling at AMF Williamsburg where they turn down the lights and crank up the music.
