It depends on what you like as well. We have several historical sites (to say the least) that are a must if you come and visit Williamsburg. There are places to bike ride, fish, swim, boat, jet ski...the list goes on! There are historical tours you can take during the day or Colonial Williamsburg offers ghost tours at night. We have a movie theater with awesome shopping surrounding it, we also have a fabulous water park! There is also tons of golfing that you can do here and plenty of people that are out there on the course with you!
There is so much to do in such a small town that you are sure to find something other than Busch Gardens that you will like!

Okay thanks, my reason for asking is because I'm considering attending William & Mary in 2010. And my goal is to become more familiar with the campus and surrounding areas. About how far of a drive is Williamsburg from VA Beach?

From Williamsburg to Va Beach...I would say on a good day with not much traffic...it will probably take you around 30-45 minutes to get to the beach. Most locals that I know, who go to the beach tend to head out further to the Outer Banks, which is on the NC border. BUT...if you are young, single looking to have fun, then Va Beach is ideal for you go to hang out at. Williamsburg is more of a family town, not to scare you off, but you will see more retirees and young families here than young college singles. There are some local bars that surround the college but most college students hang out in Newport News, Hampton, Norfolk, or Va Beach on the weekend.

Yea, good days are not Friday afternoons thru Sunday evenings. I was just there today and make it from Williamsburg to Chesapeake in 30 minutes. Traffic was great.
