Updated: Aug 4, 2023

Fall is almost here and while we’re sad to see the lazy days of summer come to an end, we’re excited for cool nights by the river, the colorful fall foliage in downtown West Point and the King William countryside, the merriment of Crab Carnival, and all the wonder of autumn in #WPKW.

You’ve heard us say before that we think our little piece of Virginia is a special place to visit all year-round, but there’s truly something magical about West Point and King William in the fall. Whether it’s a grabbing a coffee or ice cream from The Lazy Cow Ice Cream Parlor and strolling down the tree-lined streets of West Point’s historic shopping and dining district, hiking under a canopy of colorful fall flora in Sandy Point or Zoar State Forests in King William, fishing on a crisp autumn day at Glass Island, enjoying a fresh seafood dinner at one of our area’s award-winning restaurants, or paddling the Mattaponi and Pamunkey rivers, there’s much to see and do in fall in #WPKW.

If you’re looking to escape the busyness of your daily routine, West Point and King William offer a variety of vacation rentals perfect for a romantic getaway, girls’ trip, or family weekend. After booking your stay, check out our short list of sample itineraries and experiences you can enjoy in our region. And while you’re here, make sure you plan a visit to our winery and nearby vineyards and breweries, shops and boutiques, restaurants, and more.

Whether you’re craving the peace of rural Virginia, river breezes, unique shopping and dining, or entertainment, #WPKW has you covered. As the first point of salt water from central Virginia with miles of beautiful scenery, national forests, shops, restaurants, events and more, the Town of West Point and King William County offer something for everyone. We invite you to visit and stay awhile…we know you’ll fall in love.
