Riverwalk Landing, a beautiful waterfront venue designed in the spirit of colonial architecture reflected in the town’s historic buildings, offers a variety of shops, riverfront dining and outdoor experiences that provide a day-long or weekend excursion.
Riverwalk Landing links the Yorktown Victory Center and Yorktown Battlefield in a one-mile pedestrian walkway on the York River. Park your car in the free parking terrace or dock your boat at the pier. Specialty shops offer patriotic items, home decor, jewelry, clothing, books, art, wine and more.
Dine at unique restaurants, many on the waterfront serving seafood and other fine cuisine. Stop by Water Street Grille and enjoy artisan pizzas, microbrews and live entertainment on Friday and Saturday evenings. Or grab an ice cream cone at Ben & Jerry’s as you stroll by the river or sit on the beach. Arrange to rent a bike and enjoy riding around the Yorktown National Battlefield, the village or up the Colonial Parkway. Enjoy guided Segway adventure tours of the village.
Enjoy the water with a sunset sail or a pirate adventure cruise for the family on the Schooners Alliance and Serenity, rent a kayak or paddleboard, or make your own fun on the beach. Benches line the walk offering visitors the chance to sit and admire the natural beauty of the York River.
The waterfront features a performance area, an inviting beach and two floating piers to support larger vessels such as visiting tall ships and another for smaller personal watercraft such as day-trippers. A free trolley runs daily spring through fall offering many stops throughout town.
On many weekends throughout the year, visitors can enjoy live entertainment at Riverwalk Landing. It’s not unusual to see strolling performers or hear beach music one day and then find yourself listening to Dixieland the next. Of course, holiday weeks are special occasions here at river’s edge with a list of performers to get your toes tappin’ and keep you coming back for more.
Whether it’s a day of relaxation or a day of fun, it’s here at Riverwalk Landing. Enjoy this experience, just a short drive from Williamsburg.
