You can also spend some of the best days at Williamsburg’s beaches like Jamestown beach or the Colonial Parkway.  They’re small but are still a great way to spend the day in the sun while cooling off in the water. Some areas at the beaches are great to have picnics or barbeques with your friends and family as well. People also like to row or canoe in the water which is a fun, new thing to try if you haven’t before.
