From what I heard, it doesn't have much nightlife. Is that true? Does the town close down at 9 PM? I heard there isn't much for teens either?

Bikes...did you see the thread where someone has Pearl Jam tickets to give away? I know you don't like country so I thought about you when I read the post.

Our nightlife in Williamsburg is improving. What age range are you speaking of ?
They just started a new concert series at the recently re done amphitheater at Williams & Mary Lake Matoaka Summer Concert Series (http://www.matoakasummerconcerts.com/location.htm - broken link) There are a few new bar/ restaurants in New Town The Corner Pocket The Green Leaf (http://www.greenleafe.com/newtown/ - broken link)
A few bars near the college Pauls Deli, The Green Leafe (http://www.greenleafe.com/home.html - broken link) JM Randalls on Longhill.
AS well as happenings in Newport News, Hampton and Richmond are not that far away.
As for teens. It depends on what your teens are into. Sports are very big here considering the size of our area. They also hang out at Busch Gardens, New Town, area Pools, etc.
Sure larger cities have more to offer. I guess it's a trade off depending on where you want to live. We prefer the small town feel of Williamsburg to "The Big City Life"

There is plenty to do for teens and while we may not have much of a nightlife, there is still plenty to see and do. Corner Pocket offers good food, pool, and music (bands) on certain nights. Paul's Deli also has bands after certain hours. Mr. Williamsburg already mentioned the Summer Concert Series, which is a lot of fun, and many people go to JM Randall's to have a nice drink and hear some great music. For the teens, we have Water Country and Busch Gardens as well as the movie theater and a few other hot spots. I think that most teens, in life, never feel like there is enough to do. I grew up in Atlanta and was bored most of the time! For such a small town, Williamsburg has a lot to offer. I think that it depends on what kind of nightlife you are looking for. I rarely go out to bars so Williamsburg is perfect for me!

J23, thanks for bumping this thread from 2008 No one is saying that Williamsburg is teeming with night life. There are a few venues that are open later as noted above, JM Randalls, Pauls Deli, The Greeleafe, The Corner Pocket all are pretty busy late at night and offer live music. If you want the younger scene, dance clubs etc you need to go to Newport News, Hampton, Norfolk, Va Beach, or Richmond..

If you're looking for a wild night on the town Williamsburg is not the place to be. There are a few bars open at night but they're pretty tame. There are no nightclubs in Williamsburg if you're looking to dance. The only young adults around Williamsburg are William & Mary Students and even they're pretty tame. But it's because the majority demographic in Williamsburg are mostly older folks.
