“Money well spent on a road to history”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

If you are planning to travel to the Williamsburg area, then take the time to use this parkway going between Jamestown,Williamsburg and Yorktown.
It's gorgeous and and gives you a sense of the History of America as you make stops along the way.

“take your time and read the historical signs along the way.”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

this parkway is a gentle reminder of what sunday drives should be. you might see deer, woodchucks (whistle-pigs) falcons and eagles.
it can be an educational drive and/or a romantic one.

“An awesome drive”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Being from the midwest I'm not a big fan of east coast driving on I-95 or 64. So after a few days of traffic, it was an absolute delight to settle into the beautiful drive on the Parkway. It was quiet, scenic and free of road rage and driver frustration. And that fact that it takes you within a mile or two of the Yorktown Pub is an added bonus.

“Directionally Challenged”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

A source of unexpected amusement and entertainment is negotiating Colonial Parkway. Without GPS continually lost way to hotel. Stayed in area for 6 days and only on last evening could I consider myself sufficiently trained to get back to hotel without getting turned around. During my stay I managed to get everywhere I needed to go to, it was the getting back that challenged me.
