The Flat Hat staff selects their top picks for the best places in Williamsburg in 2015.

Best CW Attraction: The sheep

Gabbie Pachon // The Flat Hat

Perfect for your animal-enthusiast little brother or livestock-appreciating uncle, the Colonial Williamsburg sheep’s wooly coats can brighten any cloudy day as they baa and bleat their way into your heart.

Best Place to Study: Swemromas

Katie Koontz // Flat Hat Staff Writer

These drinks and snacks are more than a draw to visit Swemromas; they provide the energy to fuel an extended study session there.

Best Cheap Fashion: Goodwill

Iris Duan // The Flat Hat

Goodwill presents itself as a well organized and spacious store complete with racks of clothing — color coded and organized by price — changing rooms, and easy-to-understand labels.

Best Frozen Treat: Baskin Robbins

Siobhan Doherty // The Flat Hat

The good-humored staff is accommodating, even when a reporter stands at the counter with several tiny plastic spoons looking to sample all 31 flavors in the name of journalism.

Best Restaurant You Can’t Afford: Blue Talon

Erin Murphy // Flat Hat Staff Writer

The chocolate mousse is a crowd pleaser, and is filling enough to share with your parents after you’ve filled up on the mac and cheese.

Best Place to Get Lost: Matoaka Trails

Eric Peters // The Flat Hat

Walking this trail helps one remember the history of the campus, and it’s a worthwhile activity for any student that hasn’t yet wandered through the woods.

Best Baked Goods: Blackbird Bakery

Akemi Tamanaha // The Flat Hat

The tasty muffins and sweet cinnamon rolls are also the perfect excuse to skip breakfast at the Caf on weekends.
