    Mobile Workshops - Monday afternoon

    We are once again offering mobile workshop tours which will highlight projects throughout the area.  Our mobile workshops will include:

    • Capital Trail Bicycle Tour (Jamestown Settlement to Chickahominy Bridge)

    This will be a bicycle ride on the Capital Trail. The Virginia Capital Trail is a dedicated, paved pedestrian and bicycle trail that will connect the Commonwealth’s past and present capitals of Jamestown and Richmond along the Scenic Route 5 corridor. The bike ride will be a 14-mile round-trip from Jamestown Settlement to the end of the Chickahominy Bridge. More experienced riders can continue on a self-guided tour from the end of the Chickahominy Bridge to the Charles City Courthouse. This bike ride will be a 40- mile round-trip from the trail-head to the Courthouse.   Van transportation will be provided to and from the Capitol Trail-head. Bikes and helmets will be provided or participants can meet the group at the trail-head with their own equipment.

    • Jamestown Discovery Boat Tour

    Explore the history and see the beauty of the James River on a 1 hour boat tour from Jamestown Island. Space is limited to 28 passengers.    

    • Jamestown Settlement & American Revolution Museum at Yorktown

    Learn about the founding of the United States by visiting the Jamestown Settlement and American Revolution Museum at Yorktown. Visitors will be able to view period artifacts and interact with exhibits. Special outdoor exhibits show the life of a soldier and an 18th century family farm.    

    • Colonial Williamsburg and City of Williamsburg projects Walking Tour

    This Tour will provide a walking tour of Colonial Williamsburg. Colonial Williamsburg is a living-history museum and private foundation presenting the Historic Area as an interpretation of its colonial and American Revolutionary War history. Colonial Williamsburg's 301-acre Historic Area includes buildings from the eighteenth century when Williamsburg was the capital of Colonial Virginia. The approximately 3.5 mile walking route will highlight projects with VDOT funding along the way, including the Francis Street sidewalk/trail (TA Set-Aside), Richmond Road sidewalks (RS), Prince George Street and Armistead Avenue Streetscape (RS), York Street Improvements (RS), Lafayette Street and Page Street (SGR paving).
