Riverwalk Landing Marina Yorktown Reviews
Pleasant place for a stroll along the York River May 11, 2015
The Riverwalk Landing Marina is a strip of renovated land that looks across the York River below the Coleman Memorial Bridge to Gloucester Point. There are a number of restaurants and specialty shops here, as well as some (but not many) hotels. It's generally a pleasant area to walk around in the daytime or especially at night. The historic Yorktown area and Yorktown monument are not far up the hill via Ballard Street. It's generally rather quiet on weekdays, but can get a bit crowded in warmer weather on the weekends as people flock to the beach area here.
This was a nice addition to the area, which was finished in 2005 in time for the 2007 Jamestown 400th anniversary celebration. Before the marina, this area was just some strip of coastline with rock pilings strewn about and rough beach area. I used to come to this area in the 1990's because it was a nice view and had very few people around. The marina draws a lot of people on weekends for the man made beach and perhaps increases tourism for the historic Yorktown area, which is a good thing. There was a time when it seemed an abandoned place which people seldom visited anymore. Additions like the Marina draws crowds and revitalizes the area.
