5_Dime News Flash_July 14_2023

A ribbon cutting ceremony to launch the opening of the 5&Dime Trail will be held on Thursday, Aug. 3, 11 a.m. at Billsburg Brewery, 2054 Jamestown Rd., Williamsburg, VA 23185, adjacent to the James City County Marina. The 5&Dime scenic driving route showcases unique visitor stops along Route 5 (The 5) and Route 10 (The Dime) which crosses through the City of Hopewell, Prince George County, Charles City County, James City County and Surry County. These localities and the Hopewell Downtown Partnership formed a collaborative group to highlight local restaurants, retail shops, parks and other outdoor recreation venues and experiences to appeal to day trippers and overnight guests in their respective areas. Both the Billsburg Brewery and the Marina are among the many featured James City County stops along the trail.  

The Virginia Tourism Corporation (VTC) assisted with the trail’s development and provided guidance to bring the route to life. The VTC encourages everyone to experience all that Virginia has to offer by exploring one of the commonwealth’s many themed trails, with the 5&Dime being an up-and-coming addition! 
Scheduled to attend the ribbon cutting are Rita McClenny, VTC President and CEO, along with representatives of the participating localities. Get ready to experience “Authentic Americana by river & road.”
