Ride the bus or the new Williamsburg Trolley. Visit Williamsburg Area Transport for information about schedules and routes. The trolley links Williamsburg shopping and entertainment districts -- linking Merchants Square, Williamsburg Shopping Center, High Street and New Town. It runs 7 days a week and the fare is $.50. Students (middle school through college) ride free with a student ID.
Ride a bicycle
Whether for commuting or recreation, riding a bicycle in Williamsburg is easy and fun. The Greater Williamsburg Chamber & Tourism Alliance has guides and trail information. You can also purchase a guide from the Williamsburg Area Bicyclists. Another resource is the Active Williamsburg Alliance dedicated to making Williamsburg a safer and easier place to bike, walk and run. A good statewide resource is Bike/Walk Virginia.
Williamsburg is a very walkable city. Great City Walks (pdf) shows walking tours of varying degree of difficulty and distance throughout the city -- including the College of William & Mary campus and Colonial Williamsburg's Historic Area.
Remember to share the road safely by following the law and good sense. Pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists share the road and need to be respectful of each other. For a list of Virginia laws and safety tips, seminars and classes, visit www.activewilliamsburg.org
..But don't leave your dog behind... Visit the Waller Mill Dog Park or simply stroll down Duke of Gloucester Street and mingle at the Williamsburg Farmers Market.
