Almost car-free weekend in Williamsburg VA


Recommended Posts

Just returned home from a brief visit to Williamsburg where my wife and I enjoyed some nice Spring-like weather and rest.

We always enjoy visiting Williamsburg, especially since that is where my wife went to college for her Bachelor's degree (William & Mary).

Saw this nice Mustang convertible (289 with auto trans) in a CVS parking lot. The older couple said they bought it at Hershey (PA) about 3 years ago.

Just walking around the historic part, you never know what you will come across

Jim, funny you should post this. We are going to Williamsburg in April thanks to a friend that can't use his timeshare. Also, my neighbor thought he could trump my 02 by picking up a '65 289 automatic from Texas. Its a gorgeous hard top with little to no rust. I'll get pics next time he has it out. His car is nice, but trump me, I think not! BTW, great pics!

Make sure you eat at the great restaurants in the historic district (reservations required!). Our favorite has always been the King's Arms Tavern.

The line at The Cheese Shop for a sandwich and chips is worth it. You'll need to be patient - we waited 25 minutes the line was so long Saturday. We ate dinner Friday night at The Fat Canary right next door to the Cheese Shop. Saturday night's dinner was at the Blue Talon Bistro.

Saturday morning is the Farmer's Market. Everything from chocolates, bread, honey, flowers, meats and pies. Yummy.

BTW - you don't need to buy a ticket to stroll thru the area or eat or shop. The ticket mainly provides access for the neat tours thru the historic district.

Those pics take me back. Had some great times in Williamsburg in the early 70's. Graduated from York High School, dad was stationed at Langley AFB. Spent more than a few evenings hunting Snipe on the Yorktown battlefield with new Scouts.
