Nightlife in colonial Williamsburg?

by throwinj

Group of us late twentysomething/early thirty's are heading down to Williamsburg the weekend of the 24th of October. We're going to hit Howl o Scream Fri and Sat night but will leave the park Saturday night around 10pm to check out some of the nightlife in Williamsburg. We are staying at a hotel on Richmond Rd and would be awesome if i can get any advice on a 'pub crawl' for that area. Also if there are any clubs for dancing in the area, i could sure use the info thanks!

Sorry I didn't see this in time. For anyone else who might be wondering about this in the future, there isn't really an area with a long string of bars in close proximity. About the best that you could do is what the college kids call the "Dellies", which are the Green Leafe, Paul's Deli, and the College Delly and are located where Scotland St ends at Richmond Rd. The Green Leafe has the best selection of brews. However, these are not the only bars in town, just the most huddled together.

To my knowledge there are no dancing clubs in Williamsburg. I think the closest one is Tribeca in Newport News at the Omni.

Travel Tips for Williamsburg

Before you enter Colonial Williamsburg

by matcrazy1

Before you visit the Colonial Williamsburg you should know some basic historical facts. Then, you can easily broad your knowledge, first at the Visitors Center (on my picture).

EARLY-COLONIAL AMERICA
1492 - Christopher Columbus from Spain discovers the Bahamas and other Carribean Islands,
1497 - John Cabot from Italy discovers Newfoundland, Canada now,
1498 - Christopher Columbus discovers Venezuela (and in 1502-1503: Panama, Honduras, Costa Rica)
1513 - Juan Ponce de Leon from Spain lands in Florida,
1524 - Giovanni da Verrazano, sponsored by France, lands in the area around the Carolinas, then he sails north and discovers the Hudson River, and continues northward into Nova Scotia (Canada now),
1541 - Hernando de Soto of Spain discovers the Mississippi River,
1565 - the first permanent European colony in North America is founded in St. Augustine (Florida) by the Spanish,
1607 - Jamestown is founded in Virginia by the British colonists,
1613 - a Dutch trading post is set up on lower Manhattan island,
1619 - the first session of the first legislative assembly in America occurs as the Virginia House of Burgesses convenes in Jamestown,
1620 - November 9, the Mayflower ship lands at Cape Cod, Massachusetts, with 101 colonists. The Mayflower Compact is signed by the 41 men, establishing a form of local government. The colonists agree to abide by majority rule and to cooperate for the general good of the colony. The Compact sets the precedent for other colonies as they set up governments. COLONIAL AMERICA
There were 13 British colonies in North America separately chartered and governed since 17th century till 1776. From the North:
- Massachussets (Massachussets + Maine now),
- New Hampshire,
- New York (New York + Vermont now),
- Rhode Island,
- Connecticut,
- New Jersey,
- Pennsylvania,
- Delaware,
- Maryland,
- Virginia (Virginia + West Virginia now),
- North Carolina,
- South Carolina,
- Georgia.

The colonies were bounded by the Appalachian Mountains on the West and the Atlantic Ocean on the East and there were approx. 2.5 mln settlers living in the colonies in 1775 (1/3 of total population of the Great Britain!).

VIRGINIA
The oldest colony was Virginia (founded in 1607 in Jamestown). Look at the map here. During the colonial era, Virginia was known as the Colony and Dominion of Virginia, thus today its state nickname is the "Old Dominion". The colony became the Commonwealth of Virginia in 1776 when the 13 colonies signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776 and formally broke with the Kingdom of Great Britain, leading to the American Revolutionary War and the establishment of the United States of America.

WILLIAMSBURG
Williamsburg was settled in 1632 as Middle Plantation and renamed in 1699 when it became the capital of the Colony and Dominion of Virginia and since 1776 the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Williamsburg was important as the seat (since 1693) of the College of William and Mary in Virginia and it was the scene of important conventions during the movement for American independence. It lost its leading position since 1780 when the Virginia's capital was moved to Richmond.

Williamsburg for kids

by matcrazy1

I saw numerous kids both in schools groups and with parents in Colonial Williamsburg, mostly at age, say 6 - 13. A couple with a small kid joined the guided tour inside the Capitol - luckily the kid didn't cry but slept all the time.

Although Colonial Williamsburg is mainly historical park, an attraction rather for adults and maybe some older kids (youths) but, anyway, there are some attractions for kids as well:
1. a maze at Governor's Palace grounds,
2. carriage tours (expensive),
3. some stores including Tarpley's Store designated for children,
4. some points of interest like public gaol (jail), colonial garden may attract some kids,
5. some colonial performances especially theatre ones like Grand Medley of Entertainment at the Kimball theatre (check This week brochure for details and more).
6. Fifes and drums march and concert of military music.

Add here virtual Colonial Williamsbur's Kids Zone and real attractions for all kids:
1. Busch Gardens for $49.95, large theme park 3 miles east of historic Williamsburg;
2. Water Country USA for $35.95, the mid-Atlantic's largest family water play park 5 mi southeast of the Colonial WIlliamsburg.

Fences of Williamsburg

by matcrazy1

I was surpriced to see identical wooden fences, like on my picture, around all, over 500 houses in Colonial Williamsburg. It's very unique in Virginia and even in the USA where individuals fence their houses in thousands different ways.

I got to know that in this historic area there is the fence law which specify in details (6 points) the shape, size, colour etc. of the fences. The local law make many, many limitations in building anything in this area. In Colonial Williamsburg, they like to keep the fences as they looked in 1776. Mainly guides and other employees live in the historic area. They are proud of their great historical heritage and wise enugh to narrow their rights to build anything they want in historical district. In the residential areas in Williamsburg and in James City County, individuals may fence their private property the way they want to.

Colonial Childs Play

by rsleisk

In colonial times there weren't many toys for children to play with so they had come up with things to do. This was a detail of colonial life my daughter couldn't not grasp... a world without Barbies and My Little Ponies?

So I introduced her to the sport of the times for children. She got pretty good at it. A stick and a circular piece of wood from a barrel?

Common Williamsburg animals

by matcrazy1

I found squirrels the most common animals in Williamsburg. I took pictures of squirrels running fast on the Williamburg's Capitol grounds. Well, squirrels are not common animals in cities of my country especially downtown. And our, European squirrels, are more red than grey in colour.

For me their presence is evidence of clean and safe environment for animals, not so easy to find in many cities of Poland. That's why I was always surprised to see many squirrels (more than human beings :-) in parks located in dowtowns of many cities in the South.
