You Have Six Hours to Kill in Yorktown, Here’s What You Can Do

Taking a road trip through Virginia? Make a six-hour pit stop in Historic Yorktown. Here are some recommendations of how you can keep yourself entertained during your short stay.

Start your journey learning about seafaring life at the Watermen's Museum. This unique institution demonstrates the role Chesapeake Bay Watermen have played in the shaping of our nation. View exhibits depicting military and civilian water craft, as well as activities, crafts, and methods of their trade. Then examine the lives of the people who have worked and fought on the water.

From there, head east to grab some grub at the Yorktown Pub. Order one of their specials from the grill – prime rib sandwich, jerk chicken, or veggie burger – or sample local seafood like clams, oysters, shrimp, or tuna bites.

Make your way back to Riverwalk Landing to rent a bike from Patriot Tours & Provisions to explore Yorktown even more. A two-hour bike tour gives you the opportunity to traverse the waterfront area, the bluffs overlooking the York River, or Yorktown Battlefield.

Have a few minutes to spare? Pick up a piece of scrumptious carrot cake, a light snack, or a tasty beverage from Carrot Tree Kitchens before you head back out on the road.
