Williamsburg Off The Beaten Path: 49 reviews and 56 photos
Most of Williamsburg is off the beaten path. Colonial Williamsburg offers a lot of green space, I can even say that it's a park with wide alleys and boulevards lined by large trees and houses hidden behind them. So, you can easily find such lovely countryside landscapes crossed by driving horse carriages like on my picture. The early British settlers found a lot of empty lands in this area, so they could plan their communities without worrying about limited space on which to build.
Generally, one of the most characterisic feauture of old colonial and then US modern cities is a lot of space they usually cover. Forget about compact European old towns, packed with narrow and crowded streets. Many American modern cities and towns offer huge green spaces and look more like a village, always in vast suburbs but sometimes even in downtown.
