Yorktown Virginia is home of the field where the Cornwallis surrendered to George Washington and the Revolutionary War was won! In addition to the historic sites Yorktown is a great place to have dinner, a drink or ice cream.
The beach at Yorktown overlooks the York River just a few miles west of where the York flows into the Chesapeake Bay. It is a favorite spot for locals to gather to see the full moon rise. This picture of the blue moon was taken a few minutes after sunset on July 31, 2015.
The Coleman Bridge connects Yorktown to Gloucester Pointe. It is a beautiful site on a calm night when the lights from the bridge are reflecting on the glassy York River.
If you are in the Williamsburg area, Yorktown is just a short drive and is a great place to visit.
