  • When was the last time you went bowling? AMF Williamsburg Lanes have some great weekend specials and it’s a great indoor activity. There are also food and beverage specials. AMF Williamsburg Lanes has 40 lanes available.
  • Enjoy Sunday Brunch in James City County! Our suggestions for this week are the Gabriel Archer Tavern, Five Forks Café (they offer gluten-free pancakes) and the brunch buffet at Opus 9 Steakhouse.
  • Kids, dogs, and books…what a great relationship! Paws to Read attracts children from the entire spectrum of reading levels to read to trained K-9 Connection therapy dogs. The dogs listen uncritically and wag their tails as the kids read, providing unspoken encouragement and affirmation. No prior registration is needed, but a signed permission form from a parent is required. This event is at the James City County Library on Sunday, Jan. 7 from 2:30-3:30 p.m.
  • The weather may be chilly, but the fishing is still great at Little Creek Reservoir Park. The park is open daily 7 a.m.-sunset. Boat rentals and concessions are available on the weekends. Little Creek Reservoir Park is located at 180 Lakeview Drive in Toano. For more information, call 757-259-5360.
  • Take the self-guided tour of the Bluebird Loop Interpretive Trail at York River State Park. The Bluebird Loop Trail is a place where all park guests can visit and enjoy some of the most beautiful views in the park.  The trail is completely paved making it convenient for people with mobility challenges and families with small children and strollers.  The Visitor's Center is in the middle of the loop with exhibits to enhance your visit and escape inclement weather.  Bikers, hikers, and paddlers can use the loop as the start of their adventures.  A quick visit to this little trail is a great introduction to York River State Park.
