If you love to fish, then Charles City is also a destination for you. The Wilcox Wharf at Lawrence Lewis Jr. Park extends 275 feet into the James River, and its T-shaped end, which measures 45 feet, ensures that everyone has room to cast a line and fish. The site also offers a boat ramp for those who'd rather fish right on the River. Chickahominy Wildlife Management Area Fishing Pier offers a more secluded spot close to the intersection of State Road 623 and Eagles Nest Road, and when you're done, head to River's Rest Marina to dine on fresh seafood at River's Rest Blue Heron Restaurant.

Immerse yourself in natural serenity at the James River National Wildlife Refuge, located nearby in Hopewell, Virginia. If you plan to visit here, you can drive down some gravel roads, but otherwise, you'll need to plan at least 72 hours in advance to secure a permit. The effort is worth it, because once your permit is secured, you can hike a half-mile trail along Powell's Creek which leads you across a dike to a forested island, surrounded by freshwater marsh. The enchanting spectacle may also include turtle or eagle sightings in their natural habitats.

You can also enjoy a relaxing time outdoors at one of the city's many public parks. Harrison Park is the place to exercise and practice your favorite sport. The facility offers baseball, soccer, and football fields, tennis and basketball courts, as well as a playground, walking trail, concession stand, and shelters. For a quiet picnic, head to Hillside Park or Mount Zion Park. Meanwhile, Lawrence Lewis, Jr. Park lures visitors to fish at the piers along James River. It's also known as an excellent birding location from the piers or on the wooded trails. Just be sure to bring $5 for entry.

If you're a history buff looking to escape from the tourist hordes in Jamestown and Williamsburg, or if you're just looking for a romantic weekend away in the countryside, consider Charles City.

Should you explore the historic plantations in Charles City?

Charles City is known for the numerous historic plantations which still stand today. You can tour many of them and visit for special events throughout the year. Most of these Tidewater Virginia plantations grew tobacco, later shifting to mixed crops, relying heavily on slave labor up until the Civil War, when many properties were occupied by the Union Army.

Berkeley Plantation is one of America's oldest plantation homes, established in 1619, 20 miles upriver from the Jamestown settlement. Berkley was also home to two U.S. Presidents: William Henry Harrison and Benjamin Harrison. Legend has it that the first American whiskey was distilled here as early as 1620, and the first "Taps" bugle call was also played here in 1862, written at Harrison's Landing nearby.

The Sherwood Forest plantation was built in 1730 and was once home to two unrelated U.S. Presidents: President John Tyler and later President William Henry Harrison. The property was also twice occupied by Union soldiers during the Civil War. Tyler supported the Confederacy, which caused the Union soldiers to set fire to the house. The fire was put out swiftly and the house was saved, and it remains in near-perfect condition today thanks to tireless conservation efforts of the Tyler family. The home is open for tours by appointment, and the grounds are open for self-guided tours every day of the year except for Christmas and Thanksgiving.

Greenway Plantation is a 1 and 1/2 story wood-frame home that is one of the area's oldest plantations. It was built in 1776 by John Tyler, Sr., father of President Tyler, and President Tyler was born on the property in 1790. He later relocated to the area at Sherwood Forest to be closer to his childhood home. Today the home is privately owned, so no tours are currently available, but you can always drive by to see it. While you're in the area, drive by to see Poplar Springs, another historic 1 and 1/2 story gabled home. It was built in 1809.

Established in 1730, Westover Plantation is one of the stateliest historic homes in the area. The brick colonial plantation was built in an early Georgian manor house style, and its elegance is only elevated by its location on the north bank of the James River. The property's symmetry and elegant gardens delight the eye, while its secret passageways continue to intrigue. You can explore the gardens and grounds daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Interior tours are by appointment only.

Other local estates of note include Belle Air Plantation, the Historic Kittiewan Plantation, and North Bend Plantation.

Come for this history, stay for the natural beauty, and enjoy the fresh air. Charles City is the historic and natural retreat you've been looking for near Jamestown and Colonial Williamsburg.
