Nestled along the northeast edge of Newport News from Hampton to just north of Williamsburg on the Virginia Peninsula, York County encompasses a sprawling 106 square miles and, like many communities along the Chesapeake Bay, is laced with waterways. York is best known for its center, and namesake, Yorktown — famous for its role during the colonial era and through the American Revolution. These days, Yorktown is a tourist destination for history buffs, complete with interactive exhibits, preserved battlegrounds and buildings, and quaint shopping along the banks of the York River.
Located nearly equidistant from Richmond and Norfolk (with commute times to each destination averaging about an hour), York’s bedroom communities are quiet and comfortable. The area is a great place to raise a family. Niche.com gives York County an A+ for liveability, ranks it as the second best county in Virginia for families, and third best for schools.
Yorktown is one of three sites in the Historic Triangle including Williamsburg and Jamestown as important colonial-era settlements. Colonial National Historical Park, the Yorktown National Battlefield, and Yorktown National Cemetery are sites of historical interest drawing visitation to the area. Along Main Street, at the top of a bluff, nine pre-colonial structures have been preserved. Along the banks of the York, a scenic riverwalk attraction draws visitors to the popular park, restaurants, and shops along the water. The River Room at the Duke of York Hotel is one of the most popular restaurants for miles around.
So, whether you’re a history buff or just looking for an excellent quality of life in a quieter part of the region, we would be thrilled to show you around the best parts of Yorktown and York County.
