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. New Town was in its early stages and if you wanted to shop Michael's or Home Goods, you had to drive to Newport News. Target at Monticello (and I pronounce it Monta-chello not Monti-cello if you are wondering) was pretty new and Starbucks was where the Duck Donuts is now.

I could never claim I have been here forever, my accent would tell you that, but I have been around long enough to be able to give you some great advice on my top 15 Fun Things To Do in Williamsburg.

Visit Colington Harbour: Stay Soundfront

The afternoon sun can be brutal but do as the locals do and hide out under the house. Try crabbing with a chicken neck you can purchase at the grocery story for little to nothing and buy a crabbing kit. Fling your chicken in the water, tied to part of the dock, and watch the crabs come for dinner. 

I'm going to let you in on a big secret too about the Outer Banks, after September through October, the water is still VERY WARM. Shhhhh....
