    Beautiful park. Expansive. The car audio tour is very good and you can get the CD in the shop for around $5. Lots of good vantage points from different siege works.

    The battlefield was amazing. It was only a short distance from the US Coast Guard Reserve Training Center, where I served in the 1980s to 1990s. The Yokrtown Victory Center museum was awesome

    Interesting Fun Fact: Yorktown’s fame comes from the surrender of Lord Cornwallis to General George Washington in 1781 which marked the last major battle of the Revolutionary War.

    Nice place to have a view of battlefield. And it is near the sea shore, nice to have a nap on the sands.

    Par un temps superbe, la visite se révèle magnifique: pas que les aspects historiques, mais le paysage et les points de vue sur la baie de Chesapeake.
