So quiet you can hear the crickets? All dark and closed for the night? Or are there any areas where people might be walking about on a warm summer night? Maybe New Town or Colonial Williamsburg (when does that close)? Is there anything open anywhere at that time? I've heard people describe Williamsburg as "boring" and believe me, that's fine with me most of the time. I'm not looking for bars and dance clubs. But I love being around people strolling around sometimes.

If Williamsburg has nothing like that, where is the closest place to go to find people at 11 p.m.?

We have been out in New Town after leaving a bar at 2am. Center Street Grill and The Corner Pocket are open until 1 or 2am on Fri, Sat. Some of the movies let out at 1130 or 12. There were others strolling around. The same goes for a few places near Colonial Williamsburg. Some stay open as late as 2am . You can stroll around the Colonial Area as late as you like. It doesn't really close.

It seems as if you have pondered a move to Williamsburg for a while. Come and visit and see if it's to your liking. It's not for everyone but most of us love it here.

Yes, I've pondered for quite a while. Actually, I'm pretty sure I want to move there, but I'll have to sell my house first and I'm nowhere near ready to do that. Got to get the kids off to college, fix a few things, get rid of some junk, etc. Then of course, who knows how long the house will be on the market. So in the meantime, I'm wistful and just want to learn all I can about the area. I'm sure people will get tired of my questions after a while.

EmeraldGirl, 11:00 was just an arbitrary time meant to convey "at night".

JM Randall's is open till about 1 or 2 am as well on the weekends. They usually have a live band but the crowd can be mixed. Some nights it all college kids and some nights it looks like an AARP convention!

I like Williamsburg, just too far of a commute for my job and the spouses. We do enjoy the shops in Colonial Williamsburg, the bakery and restaurants.

It is definitely a buyers market here in Williamsburg/ James City County VA. Property taxes in the City of Williamsburg VA are .54 per $100 ( $2700 annual on a homes assessed at $500,000) IN James City County the tax rate is .77 per $100 ( $3850 annual on $500,000 assesses home ) Inventories are high, bargains are here. It just depend on exactly what you are looking for size, age of home, price range etc. There are certain parts of the City of Williamsburg that might be appealing. Quite a few of our homes are in communities that have HOA fees.
Tell us a price range and a little more about your desires in a home and we'll make additional recommendations!
Queens Lake in York County, Kingswood, Kingspoint, Windsor Forest in James City County might be to your liking. All are older communities, very established , lots of variety in architecture, within a few miles to shopping, etc.
