Small businesses have been in survival mode this year. But with your support, they’ll be a little closer to ending the year on a joyful note. As you cross off that holiday shopping list, consider making purchases from Yorktown businesses instead of big box stores. You’ll be helping people in our community stay afloat while also filling your sleigh with unique gifts sure to delight your loved ones. We found so many fun ideas when strolling through Historic Yorktown! Many businesses also offer online shopping and gift card options so you don’t have to leave the comfort and safety of your home. So let’s wrap up that gift list, shall we? Click here for our 2020 Holiday Gift Guide.
From weekly farmers markets to our annual wine festival to our big Fourth of July fireworks show—there are so many events taking place in Historic Yorktown. But what do you need to know before you come?
Whether you're a local who's been visiting here for years, or you're a newbie who only recently learned of our little hidden oasis—we'll help you decide where to stay, shop, dine, and play!
Immerse yourself in an area as rich in American history as it is modern-day charm. Whether you want to sail into the sunset or paddle the river at your own pace, your next adventure awaits. You'll find guides on Segways and tours on the Battlefield. There are museums, waterfront restaurants, and a public beach. Getting here is the easy part. The hard part is deciding what to do first!
Our area is rich in talent and we believe in supporting arts in the community. We'll give you sneak peeks at their work, introduce you to the artists themselves, and keep you "in the know" about all the special performances happening in and around the waterfront every month.
We are proud to be a part of America's story and we're excited to share with you all of the special events, museum exhibitions, and National Parks Service programs that take place throughout the year that are seeded in history and packed with fun for the whole family!
