Living in Williamsburg offers residents multiple opportunities to explore and experience U.S. history, to visit riverfront beaches and restaurants, to play at major tourist attractions, and to invest time in personal pursuits, such as music, art, museums, shopping, food and wine/beer, hiking/bicycling, nature, sports and water sports, festivals, and more.  Williamsburg feels like a small college and tourist town and lies within an hour radius of larger cities such as Richmond and Virginia Beach.
