Williamsburg Transportation: 31 reviews and 31 photos

The compact area of colonial Williamsburg (approx. 1.0 - 1.5 mile) is mostly closed for motor traffic and small enough to walk around. Anyway, I found a few visitors riding a bycicle there.

Personally I think that riding a bicycle around Williamsburg is not the best option but not because of possible bike thefts - the area is upclass and very safe - but because of probably high price for renting a bicycle, short enough distances to walk and free for ticket holders shuttle buses which drive around the historic colonial town. Bicycle is good option for visitors who want to visit neighborhoods and surroundings of Williamsburg like for example James River Plantations in Charles City.
