15 Fun Things To Do in Williamsburg

As a 10 year resident, (Wow! Time Flies) I have seen Williamsburg from the start of the 07'-08' recession when all building stopped.

We snacked on sandwiches and goldfish crackers. Sipped a couple of our favorite summer beers Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy, unfortunately I think everyone else loves them too so they have disappeared from Williamsburg shelves. Scoured the shores for driftwood and swam in the warm waters. How is it 67 degrees this morning?
