Equally beautiful and historic, the Chesapeake Bay will make a good home for you and your family, as it has done for perhaps millions of families in the last four centuries. That's quite a track record, wouldn't you say? The best part about the history here is that so much of it is well-preserved. Settled in early 1600s, Norfolk and Newport News on the Chesapeake have a lot of stories to share, if you only take time to look. The Matthew Jones House, built in 1720, survives today to tell modern-day visitors about the colonial period. Nearby, Hilton Village and Huntington Heights take Newport News into the twentieth century, and the Roaring Twenties. This is only the tip of the iceberg: in fact, the entire north end of downtown Newport News is on the National Register of Historic Places. Walk the length of the "Cannonball" Trail in Norfolk for a similar architectural voyage through time.
Newport News was also where the 1862 battle between the Confederate ship Virginia and the US ship the Monitor took place. This area still enjoys a strong connection to the Navy through the presence of the Craney Island US Naval Reservation. Its legacy of service in other branches of the military continues in the form of Langley Air Force base. You can still learn about its naval past by taking a tour of the USS Wisconsin, one of the largest battleships in the World War II-era navy.
If you take a cruise on the Chesapeake, you'll definitely have better luck than the ironsides of the Civil War did in the bay. You may need to take more than one cruise to get the lay of the land. The four seasons of this region of Virginia make the scenery of the Chesapeake an ever-changing vista. In the summer, treat yourself to a day at the beach--Virginia Beach, of course. Visiting a 35-mile sandy coastline (that's practically in your own backyard) sure beats plunking down hundreds of dollars for airfare to Florida or California.
If you do need a little variety, you have easy access to the town of Virginia Beach, as well as to Hampton. Much of what you'll need to entertain the family on the weekends is easily within reach. Virginia Zoological Park. For older kids (or just artsy ones) a day at the Chrysler Museum of Art will be much appreciated. The Chrysler boasts the largest collection of glass art in the world, from antiquity to the present day.
This is a community that loves to get together, whatever the occasion. Mardi Gras, St. Patrick's Day, Fourth of July, the winter holidays, and even the mid-autumn moon festival, all deserve their own events in the eyes of most residents. The Virginia Children's Festival is another don't-miss social event for the younger set. Norfolk and Newport News also love to celebrate what makes their cities, their arts scenes, and their food scenes unique, with the Annual Town Point Virginia Wine Festival in the fall, and sometimes a Spring Town Point Virginia Wine Festival in May. The Jazz Festival and Cajun Food Festival point to the region's southern heritage. Keep your calendars ready, because you never know when you'll run into an event like the annual Opera in the Park concert, a free dose of high-quality entertainment.
