Get Out and Get Active

Venture outside to enjoy some fresh air and incredible scenery – it’s the perfect way to experience Greater Williamsburg. Run down Duke of Gloucester Street, ride your bike on the scenic Colonial Parkway, see York River State Park via horseback and hike miles of fabulous trails. On the water, kayak around Historic Jamestowne, take a boat tour or sailing excursion, or simply go fishing or swimming. Hit the greens on one of more than a dozen golf courses, see wildlife, or take an outdoor tour for action-packed adventures like ziplining or riding Segways. There isn't a shortage of outdoor activities for any traveler in the area.
