One of the true jewels of the Historic Triangle is Historic Yorktown, which has equal measures of history and charm, all in a breathtaking Riverfront setting.
On the waterfront, visit the Watermen's Museum, which tells the story of the men and women who settled the Chesapeake Bay area and earned a living from the tributaries that feed it. Yorktown is also the home of several fine antique shops, art galleries and charming restaurants all nestled in the village and overlooking the York River. Don't miss the free trolley that operates daily spring through fall.
To add to the charm of your visit, take a sunset sail on the York River aboard the Schooner Alliance. Stroll along the scenic river walk where you can relax on the beach, soak up the sun or attend one-of-a-kind programs such as pirate pillage, beach music and jazz concert series. Part history, part adventure, Historic Yorktown has something to offer everyone.
On the shores of the York River, visit Riverwalk Landing. This beautiful waterfront development, designed in the spirit of colonial architecture, is reflected in the town's historic buildings and features specialty shops, riverfront dining, an outdoor performance venue and free parking. The waterfront is also home to two piers - one for medium cruise ships and tall ships, the other for personal watercraft.
