williamsburg inland?

If we are coming from NJ and heading to VB, would it make sense to spend time in Williamsburg on our way back to NJ? Difficult to see on map, could someone verify?

I used MapQuest to look at some routings. If you are taking the Eastern Shore north, it's around 310 miles. If you take I-64, to come through Williamsburg, and then continue on I-64, I-95, etc., it's about 395 miles. If you want to visit Williamsburg, you could do it that way, or make a day trip of it during your time at Va Beach.

I agree with Zoey and would add that it depends on the time of day you will be traveling. The tunnel via 64 is horrific if you hit it at the wrong time. Also depends on if you are driving straight through. Lots to do in Williamsburg so you'll want to allow plenty of time to do as much as you can.

We much prefer the Eastern Shore route when heading north, less traffic, more scenic drive. Timing a drive on I-95 is crucial if you don't want to be stuck.
