    This is my home town and, I really have to say, I like it a lot. Small compared to the neighboring cities of Hampton, Newport News and Williamsburg, but it has its own charms with historic Yorktown, Yorktown Beach and more. If you happen to be in the Hampton Roads area, then it is a nice place to stop. I wouldn't suggest traveling specifically to Yorktown unless you're combining it with a trip to Williamsburg.

    Yorktown was founded in the late seventeenth century, and is known primarily as the place where American Independence was forged in the fire of the Battle of Yorktown. It was here where Lord Cornwallis surrendered his entire British force to General George Washington (actually General Benjamin Lincoln accepted the British surrender sword) in October of 1781.

    I'm a Yorktown native, and I can say it's a sleepy little town that doesn't really have too much happening. However, Historic Yorktown has an adorable waterfront area on the York River that's very well done with plenty of shops, restaurants, and historical sites! If you're in Williamsburg, Yorktown is worth coming to see for half a day.
