Beautiful part of Virginia. Get on the schooner cruise - besy book in advance although I was fortunate enough to get tickets on that evening. Did the 5 pm cruise and enjoyed watching the sunset from the York River. Great experience!

This is a small sandy beach overlooked by the large Yorktown Bridge to the West. Sand quality looks great and there are plenty of food outlets nearby. Not sure if I wanted to go to a beach I would come here especially when Virginia Beach is within an hour's drive. That said, if you are already nearby or if you have small children that need amusing for a couple of hours, then this may prove ideal.

Our family enjoyed an excellent meal at the Yorktown Pub. We stopped here on the advice of a local who described it as "a biker bar, but the best food in town." Now, I wouldn't call this a biker bar, but he was spot on about the excellent food.

Stopped here with the family after visiting Yorktown Victory Center. We brought our swimsuits (there is a changing area) but decided not to swim. The beach was ok - neither the best or worst that I've been to. We choose not to swim after noticing the jelly fish.
