My wife and I live in a northern suburb of NY City, are about to retire and are considering a move to either Williamsburg or Chesapeake. Could anyone fill us in on the relative merits of each place. Thanks.

Williamsburg Is A Nice Place To Live,but Very Expensive Do To Tourist ,busch Gardens And Water Country On The East End Cause A Little Conjestion But Not Much. There Is Shoping Galore,outlet Stores All Over, And Good Restaurants.
