What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Williamsburg

Close to Colonial Williamsburg, within walk/bike. Lots of trees and very green. Cute Tapas place and bakery to walk to. I like visiting the beach and the mountains . We live close to both.

It's walking distance to most everything you'd want. Favorite business would be a local bike shop that I enjoy going to and a Barnes and Noble. At the moment I enjoy going to some of the restaurants in the immediate area to meet up with friends.

It's all new and most of the families has young kids. Local business are a little far for the liking but we have got very good friends here

Family friendly, involved community, close t schools and shopping I like going for walks and visiting with friends

I love this neighbourhood. It's got a family vibe. It's small and quaint and super quiet. It's the best place either of my wife and I have ever lived.

It is close to our local college and historic area. We can walk to the historic downtown area for food or walk the dogs on campus. The neighborhood is very quiet.
