Williamsburg Virginia

Moving to/ Relocating/ Retiring in Historic Williamsburg, Virginia.With a rare combination of historic charm, fabulous entertainment and breathtaking natural beauty, Williamsburg is unlike any other city in America. Center stage for the birth of our nation, it forms a third of Virginia’s “Historic Triangle,” one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.

 

But while Williamsburg’s celebrated history is an enormous draw, there’s so much more. This highly accessible city is just a short drive from Virginia’s capital city in Richmond, the major U.S. port of Newport News and popular oceanfront resort Virginia Beach. It also offers exclusive accommodations, fine dining, award-winning amusement parks, and exceptional shopping and golf. More than any other area in the country, Williamsburg offers the best of yesterday and today for an experience that truly has something for everyone.

Historical Importance

Of the many things for which Williamsburg is deservedly known, first and foremost is its rich history. The city’s story begins in 1633, when English colonists founded the settlement that was soon to be Williamsburg. The city went on to become a major political, cultural and social center throughout the colonial era. It soon became an academic center, too, with the founding of the College of William and Mary. The college, established in 1693, is one of the oldest in the country, second only to Harvard University. Williamsburg also served as Virginia’s state capital for a century, from 1699, when it was renamed in honor of William III, until Richmond was made capital in 1799.

Williamsburg’s continued relevance in the modern era was assured in 1926, when it attracted the attention of John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Thanks to the billionaire philanthropist’s desire to restore and preserve the city to its colonial era appearance, Williamsburg is today a world-renowned living museum of America’s early history.

Accessibility

Williamsburg is highly accessible to a number of major Virginia cities. Richmond, the state’s capital and one of its largest cities, is just 50 miles and less than an hour’s drive away on I-64 West. Norfolk, a leading U.S. port and Virginia’s second-largest city, is just 55 miles and an hour’s drive away on I-64 East. Newport News is a half hour away along I-64 East, and major metropolitan area Northern Virginia is 150 miles and two and a half hours away via I-95 North.
