West Point is one of those quiet, out-of-the-way places set in an area of great natural beauty with a wonderful quality of life. The little town and its contiguous counties are about 45 minutes east of Virginia’s capital, Richmond, and about an hour from the military and port complexes on the Chesapeake Bay. The West Point area consists of the town itself, King William, King and Queen, and New Kent Counties, and lies on a small peninsula at the head of the York River between the Pamunkey and Mattaponi Rivers. Residents of the West Point area enjoy an uncrowded, unhurried, friendly environment that includes the one small town, West Point, surrounded by many outlying villages. People who have been used to the heavily urbanized parts of the United States are pleasantly surprised by the many attractions and amenities in and around West Point, and many more within a short drive. Colonial Williamsburg and the cities of Richmond, Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, Virginia Beach, and the Eastern Shore are all within easy driving distance. This eTrail provides detailed information on sights, events, entertainment, shopping, dining, accommodations, and transportation in this area of Virginia.
