Colonial Beach Travel Guide

Spanning 2.6 square miles, Colonial Beach is a cozy getaway, known for being the setting of James Tigner's novel, Playground of the Potomac. Set 65 miles from Washington, D.C. and Richmond, this small town is great for a short vacation or day trip. The boardwalk and beaches are the main attraction, with most visitors arriving by boat to the marina. Once on the peninsula, it's not uncommon to see people exploring by bike, motorcycle or even golf cart.

Things to Do in Colonial Beach

Head to the downtown Ferry Landing District to find all sorts of things to do including fishing from the Municipal Pier. Alternatively, simply stroll down the Boardwalk and take in the waterfront views, people-watch or step inside The Beach Shop for souvenirs to take home.

Once you've worked up an appetite, grab a bite to eat from one of the food vendors such as Beach Taco or get a table at the Dockside Restaurant and Tiki Bar.

Don’t forget to stick around for incredible sunsets that dimly illuminate the surrounding waterways of the Potomac River, Monroe Bay, and Monroe Creek. Afterward, stop by one of the live music venues to end the night.
