How to Spend a Sunday in Williamsburg
Hello, hello! This week, we changed the clocks, its a “supermoon” and Friday the 13th is rapidly approaching. Might make for an interesting week! If you work in healthcare, you’ll understand my trepidation. Ha! I had a patient cancel today because she forgot to change her clocks, so off to quite the start. Anyways, today is about how to spend a Sunday in Williamsburg, Virginia!
Jarrett and I made a little day trip up to Williamsburg, just about 45 minutes north of Norfolk. We have been gradually going through a bucket list of places we want to visit/eat before we move and we had a few things we wanted to try in Williamsburg. There are lots of restaurants still on our list, so we better start working through them! But, here’s how to spend a Sunday in Williamsburg…
Brunch at Amber Ox
I’m not exactly sure why it took us so long to head back to Williamsburg, but I’m so glad we finally did. We started off with a late brunch at Amber Ox Public House, after a number of people told us we needed to eat there.
Jarrett and I shared a small flight of four beers from Precarious Beer Project, including one made with beets! He ordered the brunch burger, while I had the most amazing chicken & waffles! We left feeling full and happy!

We ended up with perfect spring weather, sunny & 65, and we were greeted with a festival in the colonial district of Williamsburg! The second Sunday of every month, starting in March, this area shuts down to traffic and fills with craft vendors and musicians. We wandered through, with full bellies, and watched a really good juggler! Plus, saw a million dogs which made me very happy. 🙂

The final stop of our afternoon adventure was the Virginia Beer Company! This is just outside of Colonial Williamsburg, so you definitely need a car to get here. Jarrett and I were able to grab an outdoor picnic table, right in front of a fire pit, which was the perfect spot to sample a flight of eight beers.
If you visit, I highly recommend doing this! The flight was only $15, and included four flagships, plus four newer brews. We each grabbed one additional beer, which we drank while watching corn hole and of course, more dogs!
This was such an easy afternoon date and we had so much fun! If you only have a couple hours, I recommend this quick itinerary! We are going to try to visit Richmond, VA one more time before we head out, but our moving date is rapidly approaching!
