Tours for the better half!!!

Recommended Posts

None are planned at this time. There are tons of places in the area for those that wish to go and explore on their own.

What kind of tours are you thinking of, Mike? There are several 'family' destinations nearby that just require transportation to get to (some require tickets, of course):

Busch Gardens Theme & Water park (in Williamsburg)

Colonial Williamsburg

The Williamsburg Pottery (Shopping Outlet Mall)

Jamestown Settlement (historyisfun.org) just up the road from Hampton

Nauticus Maritime Museum - in Norfolk (www.nauticus.org)

The Virginia Living Museum (thevlm.org) just up the road from Hampton

The Mariners Museum (www.marinersmuseum.org) in Newport News, just up the road from Hampton

The Virgina Aquarium & Marine Science Center (http://www.virginiaaquarium.com/) in VA Beach

The Chrysler Museum of Art (http://www.chrysler.org/) in Norfolk - arts, crafts and such.

The Children's Museum of Virginia (http://www.childrensmuseumva.com/) in Portsmouth

all these can provide at least a day's worth of 'entertainment', depending on any youngster's interests.


and of course, Virginia Beach.



General listing of events can be found through several sources, including: hamptonroads.com/events


Plus, each of the Hampton Roads cities have their own listings to promote tourism. I just recommend a bit of online research to 'flesh out' an itinerary and if you have any specific questions, just give the local crew a holler - nothing like having the 'inside scoop' on things. For example, every Saturday evening during the summer months, the city of Norfolk has an free outdoor, live band playing for residents at the Oceanview Park, which is just out of the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel heading 'south' (aka I-64E) so readily accessible from the Hampton side of the river. It provides a nice evening of setting in a park listening and/or dancing to the music while the yard-monkeys play run-about. I'm sure other such tidbits can be offered by others in the local chapters, so keep the discussion 'up'.
