Treat your inner history buff to a visit to the heart of America's history. Yorktown, located in eastern Virginia along the York River, is a part of the Historic Triangle, along with Jamestown and Williamsburg. Check out hotels in Yorktown, Virginia, and come see where the Revolutionary War was won and the Civil War was fought.
There is no shortage of sights to visit here. Yorktown hotel deals sometimes include historic tours, but if you are striking out on your own, start by walking the Yorktown Battlefield and reacquainting yourself with details about the war at the visitor center. Visit Nelson House, Cornwallis' Cave, Moore House, and the Yorktown Victory Monument in your explorations. Elements of American history are all over town. Stroll along the Riverwalk Landing listening to fife and drum players march through town in regimental gear, then charter a cruise around the river on a pirate ship. When you're done prowling the battlefields, you can shop for historic souvenirs or regional art on the hill, or take in a unique gallery along the waterfront.
Yorktown hotels close to the historic section of town give you easy access to dining on fresh locally caught fish along the Riverwalk, and local produce from the Farmers' Market. Rest your travel-weary feet at a seaside pub while listening to live music, and enjoy fish and chips with a craft beer. Later, you can indulge in ice cream or flaky fresh pastries from locally owned cafes. Head over to the business district for international cuisines like Mexican, Japanese, Italian, or German dishes. No matter what your tastes, you will find a great meal in the historic or business districts of town.
