It's a great tight knit community with small-town restaurants and privately owned businesses. The schools are well equipped to teach and sports are heavily focused on. That would be my only complaint, is watching different sports teams throughout high school get the majority of the funding while the music department, other clubs, and class needs are pushed towards the back.

Williamsburg is an amazing town that is filled with great people. We have a really good coffee shop that was started by 2 people who grew up in Williamsburg. We have a great high school full of kids with so much potential. We are close to the interstate so travel is never hard. You can't forget about the outlet mall right outside of town, which gives most of our students their jobs and a fun place to hang out. The grocery store has everything you could every need. We have great restaurants on our square so you never go hungry. Everyone always feels safe because you are surrounded by awesome people. You can hang out and talk anywhere in town and always bump into someone you know and strike up a conversation. Our town’s library has so many books, you could probably get lost in there just reading the day away. I would never want to move out of Williamsburg because it is such an amazing place.
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.
