LOCAL INFO: Founded in 1699, Williamsburg, Virginia is billed as “the largest living history museum in the United States.”  Located on a peninsula in southeast Virginia, between the York and James Rivers, Williamsburg is part of the “Historic Triangle,” which also includes the cities of Jamestown and Yorktown.  Research and information gathering since the 1920s have led to the restoration and re-creation of many Williamsburg colonial houses and public buildings. The city’s blend of colonial and contemporary culture, modern shopping and historic reenactments, and classic buildings and championship golf courses makes Williamsburg, VA a prime destination for individuals looking to retire or relocate in the Southeast.
