Why did you choose the city / state you now live in? We chose Williamsburg Virginia because of the amount and diversity of things there are to do here. That along with the temperate climate allows for outdoor activities both day and night.
What do you love most about where you live? The people are probably my favorite thing about Williamsburg, I always say that this is where northern culture meets southern hospitality
What is your favorite restaurant in your town? It’s not an easy answer you seek, but I guess it would depend on what I was in the mood for. If it is steak then I would have to go with Opus 9 Steakhouse in New Town. Perfectly cooked steaks served on 500 degree plates by some of the most professional wait staff I have ever known. Now if we are talking about seafood I would have to say a recent comer to the neighborhood “Holy Mackerel” a great local seafood place that’s casual and fun and has all the perfect aspects a great seafood place should have
