Visit Williamsburg, VA and the Yorktown Battlefield and walk through the (Chesapeake) Waterman's Museum on the York River by Yorktown. There's plenty more - I'll stop there.

I didn't see your other thread. Are you looking for a place to retire? If so, the above are not bad suggestions.

I'd add the Whitestone/Irvington/Deltaville area to the list as well.

If you want to keep working the Tidewater area of VA probably has more to offer.

Onancock was voted among the 10 coolest small towns in America by readers of Budget Travel Magazine. It is a neat place to hang out on the "Liars Bench" by the town docks and watch the transients come and go.
