Hampton is a unique combination of small-town charm and big city amenities. On the city’s revitalized waterfront, visitors can board a boat for a narrated tour of the Chesapeake Bay, and explore the space age artifacts in the world-class Virginia Air and Space Center and Hampton Roads History Center. They can experience the thrill of a giant-screen IMAX movie or take a spin on an antique carousel. And that’s only a beginning. The new HarborLink high-speed ferry connects downtown Hampton with downtown Norfolk, making it easier to visit both cities in one day. Hampton also offers two Civil War forts, African-American heritage sites, Bay-front beaches, self-guided walking and driving tours, great seafood restaurants and a choice of moderately priced hotels. Plus, Hampton’s central location makes it the perfect base for day-trips to Colonial Williamsburg and Virginia Beach. This eTrail provides detailed information on sights, events, entertainment, shopping, dining, accommodations, and transportation in this area of Virginia.
