Colonial Beach, Virginia

September 15, 2012

We went out to Colonial Beach, Virginia recently and had a great time. While the beach is a bit gravelly and the water a little bit brown, it is still a beautiful Potomac River beach that you can access without hitting heavy traffic going to a “real” beach.

Dining

We ate at the Riverboat on the Potomac restaurant, adjacent to the beach, where we found reasonable prices and good food. Since the restaurant is located on the river, there is actually a Welcome to Maryland sign as you enter and they have Maryland gambling such as Keno available.

Wildlife

There were plenty of birds, like this royal tern in winter plumage. Thanks to Mark P. for the identification!
