If you are ever in the Williamsburg area, visit Jamestown Island!

By
Real Estate Agent 0225218019

Jamestown Island is the home of the fJamestown Islandirst permanent English settlement in the United States. 

 

Sunday, December 27th was a beautiful warm day here in Williamsburg.

 

I had not driven through  Jamestown Island for a while so I decided it was a great day to take a ride there. 

 

The island is reached via the Colonial Parkway over a small bridge that crosses Powhatan Creek where it flows into the James River.

Once you arrive on Jamestown Island the road is one way.  There are two routes: one is a short tour of about one and a half miles and the longer tour is six miles.

Jamestown is a nice place for biking, hiking or a casual drive.

There are several wooden bridges on the six mile route as you can see in a couple of the photos below.

The creeks are another beautiful sight on Jamestown Island.

So you can drive there?  I was expecting a boat trip! Looks very peaceville and calm.

The next time you are here, give me a "heads up".  I should be able to get you a free narrated tour of Colonial Williamsburg from a history buff who works there.  (I know him pretty well!)

Sybil-I was at Colonial Williamsburg many years ago and then this year I visited Sea World in Williamsburg. I will have to add this place as a new place to visit.  Love the pics.

I enjoyed it immensely and will be visiting the one in Tampa Fla in about 3 weeks. Never been to Water Country. I used to do that when the body wasn't such a pain.

There are still a lot of fun things to do in Water Country even with if you are older.  It is a lot of fun to take the grandchildren and watch them have fun!
