Only approximately 65 miles from Washington DC or Richmond, the Town of Colonial Beach, Virginia (CBVA), offers a welcome respite from the traffic, noise and frenzy of city life. Home to the second largest public beach in Virginia, located on the Potomac River, CBVA gives river and beach lovers quick and easy access to coastal life.
A favorite aspect of Colonial Beach is its designation as a golf cart community. Though cars and trucks are not prohibited, the speed limit in Town is just 25 m.p.h. Golf carts are street legal and available for rent, thus a popular mode of transportation in the 2.6 mile town.
Themed golf cart parades are held throughout the year, including the upcoming Annual Halloween Golf Cart Parade held during the Annual Fall Festival.
This fun-filled, family event takes place on Town Hill (Corner of Colonial and Washington Avenues), featuring food and craft vendors, family fun zone, a fire pit, music, and more. The day is capped off with a spectacular Halloween inspired decorated golf cart parade! Be sure to watch the carts drive “the Point” the Saturday before Halloween.
Play like a local! Many residents own their own golf carts and spare no expense customizing it to suit their interests and tastes. Visitors can rent golf carts at several providers in town.
