Williamsburg Real Estate
Founded in 1699, Williamsburg is Virginia’s Colonial Capital. The town is rich in American and Virginia history. Here you’ll find historic Colonial Williamsburg, home to the Duke of Gloucester Street, which Franklin D. Roosevelt once referred to as “The most historic avenue in all America.”
You will see why as you stroll down the cobblestone walkways of “DoG” Street, lined with meticulously restored colonial-period homes, boutique shops, and note-worthy restaurants. All year long there is something special going on downtown – enjoy the Farmer’s Market in the summer, “An Occasion for the Arts” in October and fireworks celebrating Grand Illumination in December.
The College of William & Mary, located just next to Colonial Williamsburg, offers more entertainment to residents. Be it the annual Shakespeare Festival, or an exhibition on Italian painting at the Muscarelle Museum of Art, there is always something happening on campus.
Residents also enjoy access to other nearby attractions such as Busch Gardens, Water Country, and The Williamsburg Winery. Williamsburg is also a great community for those who enjoy the outdoors, with easily accessible golf courses, trails, historic sites and parks.
Local chefs have been committed to putting Williamsburg’s culinary scene on the map, which is part of why Williamsburg has been described as vibrant and cosmopolitan; however, Williamsburg maintains a small town feel with just over 14,000 residents in Williamsburg proper.
