Your Williamsburg Getaway Will Encompass History & Outdoor Enthusiasm

If you're a guest of the Alice Person House, you may be planning to see Colonial Williamsburg -- as well you should.

But there's more to do in Williamsburg, a lot more. And if you're a lover of the outdoors, our lovely city and the surrounding area offer you a great many outdoor activities, from hiking, bicycling, golfing, swimming, and so on.

Here are a few ideas to get your outdoor loving heart pumping:

If you love to walk or hike along forested trails, often along lovely creeks and rivers, Williamsburg is the town for you.

For example, if you're a history and nature buff, checkout Jamestown Island. You can walk, bike, jog or even drive along the island's three- or five -mile trail. Be sure to explore "Olde Town," the site of the excavation of the historic James Fort as well as the burial ground of the original colonists, and "New Towne", which was developed after 1620. Many foundations of homes built in the early 1600s were excavated in the 1930s and 1950s and replicas of those original foundations are scattered throughout "New Towne."

If cycling is your first love, you must ride the Capital Bike Trail. You can ride its entire eight miles from the Jamestown Settlement to the Chickahominy River Bridge.

A little hot after your ride? Why not rent a canoe or kayak and paddle along York River State Park? York River is a coastal estuary -- freshwater and saltwater meet here.

If you love to fish, try angling a line in the York River for the chance to catch catfish, croaker, striper and even crabs. The nearby Taskinas Creek offers anglers catfish and white perch.

Amusement parks are outdoors, so do they qualify as an "outdoor activity?" If you say yes, then a visit to Busch Gardens Europe and Water Country USA should be high on your list of places to visit. Water Country, in fact, is the Mid-Atlantic's largest water park, and offers park goers the chance to ride attractions that all have a '50s or '60s surf theme.

If amusement parks are "outdoor activities," what about window shopping outdoors? If this is your ideal outside activity, and especially if you love Colonial America, then a visit to Duke of Gloucester Street and Merchant's Square needs to be added to your to-do list. Filled with retail shops and taverns with a Colonial feel, you can look at the buildings and the outdoor reenactments, shop and dine to your heart's content.

Garden lovers must stop by the Williamsburg Botanical Garden. More than 2,000 trees, bushes and other plants surround herb gardens, a butterfly garden, as well as a native plant garden. The garden also offers visitors the chance to see a fernery, a wildflower meadow and a wetlands.

Alice Person House will be glad to help you choose the perfect outdoor activity for your visit with us. We also can help you find bicycle, canoe and kayak rentals.
