My wife and I both, work in the area. Quite a few of my neighbors work in the Williamsburg area. Of the remainder that work most are employed in Newport News or Hampton. A few commute to Richmond Are you asking if there are families living/ working here ? Yes. More and more are moving here. Does that answer your question ?

I guess my question is this. I live in a tourist, retirement town right now, but we have over 80,000 people in the city alone. my question is, would someone like me, single and 31, find it hard to make friends? I don't really have much in common with an 18 year old student at william and mary, nor do I have anything in common with someone 65 and retired. I don't want to be bored.

Although that segment of the population is growing Newport News, Hampton , Va Beach, Norfolk or Richmond definitely have a greater amount/ percentage of singles in that age range.

Now I wouldn't go that far. There are bars around, some with live music The Corner Pocket, JM Randalls, Pauls near the college. They are doing a summer concert series at William and Mary Amphitheater. We do have some nightlife for 30 somethings !!

Williamsburg probably isn't the best social choice for someone like yourself if you have other options, but if you have to live there for some reason I think you'll get by okay. It's definately not just college students and old people, but I think you'll find that most people in your age group there are married and starting families.

There is a lot of golf in the area as well. I have several single girlfriends in their 30's who golf and have fun. You just have to find your niche and look for things in the area that you like to do. I will say that Yorktown might be a better match as far as night life goes, but Williamsburg is a nice community with a lot to offer anyone who comes here!

Default Where do Eastern Europeans hang out after work?

I notice lots of Eastern European people working as wait staff in many of the restaurants in Williamsburg. My question is: where do they hang out after work (if there is such a thing as "after work")? Is there a social scene for them?
