The Ben & Jerry's at Yorktown Beach has been open for five or so years and my guess is that I have stopped by several dozen times. Each and every time I have left happy.
Unfortunately there just are not many places to grab a snack nearby so quite often we head down to Yorktown Beach for the express purpose of enjoying some ice cream at Ben & Jerry's and walking around the beach area. Just a perfect little place to slow down and enjoy things a bit.
And the icing on the cake would be a relaxing ride on the Colonial Parkway which begins right in Yorktown and winds through Williamsburg and Jamestown. Stop by, grab a cool treat, enjoy a nice walk or drive. Works for me every time!
Note: There is a parking garage right behind Ben & Jerry's and unless you are local you may not ever see it. The county did a great job of disguising the parking lot. If you park at the far end there is a brick path that leads right to the side of Ben & Jerry's!
