Williamsburg is a quiet, tired rural town near Iowa City. It's not too lively, but it's a good place to grow up. I appreciate the kindness the people of the town show their neighbors, and there isn't much crime. Williamsburg is not somewhere that gets much attention, but it's a town that shows its people compassion and peace.

I love that Williamsburg is a small town with a lot of big town offerings. Williamsburg has a grocery store, a nice down town area, and the Outlet Mall.
