Walking the D.O.G., Colonial Williamsburg, Williamsburg, Virginia


One advantage of the restored colonial district (Colonial Williamsburg) is that it provides a perfect place to walk children and dogs, as these ladies were.  The main street, Duke Of Gloucester Street, is commonly known as "D.O.G." street given its initials. It provides a one mile stroll without cars (no cars are permitted in the district).  Along the way, you see all the costumed characters, buildings and tourists. There is no admission to walk the area, only if you want access to the museums, restored buildings or other events.

is a fortuna that there is a space where you can walk safely and not to breathe the gas of cars.

I love scenes like this that would be familiar anywhere! I wish we had more pedestrian-only areas... I love to walk, myself.

A very nice place for walking. Those modern strollers make quite a contrast...

D.O.G. has always been a magical place for me. No matter how many times I've been there i always seem to find something new to grab my interest.

I think Williamsburg is a nice place to live. I like the idea of beautifully restored homes and some history lessons on the go.
