The town is home to Yorktown Beach, a large public beach that includes grassy picnic areas and a fishing pier, along with public showers. Heritage tourism draws visitors to several adjacent downtown neighborhoods. Yorktown Village, or Historic Yorktown, is near the York River, where Water Street is lined with an antique shop, restaurants, a park and a pier. Main Street can be found on a bluff that sits above the floodplain, and structures here are built mostly in the colonial era's architectural style. Nine buildings in this section of town are pre-Revolutionary, including the Somerwell House and Nelson House. A short drive will bring you to the Colonial National Historical Park and the Yorktown Victory Monument, both located just along the town's borders.
