Quaint, quiet little town with a lot of things to do. Or, just sit on the beach and enjoy the view. Great restaurants that are reasonably-priced. Everyone is friendly and helpful.Hard to get lost because the town is like a oblong circle with beautiful views....More

Nice walk to view the River and beach! See fisherman and all sorts of fish and eels but need to be careful with those throwing their lines.

Trying to put this little mini-vacation we took to Colonial Beach into words may be hard. We are normally "beach-beach" people (think OuterBanks / Duck area). I took my kids here for a little summer get-away during the week since my husband was working. First...More
