Exploring Yorktown, Warner Hall’s Historic Neighbor

Though there is something at the Inn at Warner Hall to fill your time here – from strolling the Virginia plantation estate, to bike riding to exploring the Severn River by kayak – sometimes it’s also nice to hop in the car and take the short drive to explore more of our region’s rich history and activities. Historic Yorktown Beach is a mere 20 minutes away and surrounded by shopping, historic sites and a quaint, homey beach. Here’s a few of the reasons we love Yorktown. Ask us for more details if you want to make a day of exploring our neighbors to the south.

For the History-buff

A “Revolutionary Riverfront Treasure,”Yorktown is packed with history. In many ways, it’s the birthplace of our country. Lord Cornwallis surrendered to George Washington here, ending the last major battle of the American Revolution. Yorktown was also a site for major Civil War activity. Yorktown is promoted as one of the tree cities that create “The Historic Triangle”in the Hampton Roads area.

Start in the Yorktown Battlefields —explore the fields, buildings and museum. A Visitor’s Center is the perfect starting point.

The 105-foot tall Schooner Alliance is also docked at Yorktown Beach, walking distance from the Visitor’s Center, and promises to sail you into history. The loud BOOMS you hear from the beach are often the canons from the ship, which sails three times everyday from the Riverwalk Landing pier.

For the Shoppers

Head to the Yorktown beachfront on a Saturday morning during the spring and summer and you’ll find a robust farmer’s market boasting original pieces from local artists. Every other day, the Yorktown Beach Waterfront and historic town on the bluffs overlooking the York River is home to galleries, antique shops and even a goldsmith. Waterfront restaurants, from the Yorktown Pub to Riverwalk and more, are great spots to recharge before shopping or exploring some more.

For the Beach Bum

Want to dig your toes in the sand? Throw your towel down on Yorktown’s scenic riverfront and manicured beaches. This two-acre beach is perfect for sunbathing, “treasure hunting”for seashells with the kiddos, swimming, or watching the Schooner Alliance come in and out of Yorktown.

For the Active Vacationer

The roads along the Battlefields and one-pile pedestrian Riverwalk along the York River are ideal for seeing this historic location while also burning up some calories. You know, before you head back to Warner Hall and dig in to your Supper Basket!
