What is it like to live in a college town such as Williamsburg? That’s a question many are asked whenever one meets a visitor, especially those who come to walk up and down Duke of Gloucester Street. The College of William and Mary anchors one end, historical buildings from 17th century line the other.
An evening stroll down DOG Street allows for the transcending of time. A young man who once came from Pennsylvania to attend William and Mary and stayed for a lifetime once said “there’s no other place quite like it. It is almost magical. Williamsburg can be almost anything you want it to be. It is a very, very special place.”
That sentiment does not get lost on those who live in or near Williamsburg, which is part of the Historical Triangle that includes Jamestown and Yorktown and is bordered by James City County and York County. Described by many as both a “tranquil and exciting” place to live, Williamsburg is popular for both travelers and attractive for those wishing to relocate. Take the time to Google “What it is like to live in Williamsburg?” You’ll find many good reasons to be to come here for a visit or live in one of the area’s many special communities.
The website “College Ranker” recently said Williamsburg was “a great place to live no matter what kind of lifestyle you prefer, and it is home to The College of William and Mary.” It went on talk about Busch Gardens in James City County and one of the area’s major employers, the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. They could have easily added information about the brewery, the Williamsburg Winery, New Town or some of the area’s other attractions, businesses, premier hotels, great golf courses, waterfront or other resorts.
