Things to Do

Vibrant Hampton, a seaside city with exciting attractions and heritage sites, lures visitors with its family-friendly offerings. The city’s history is broad-ranging, and its attractions capture the essence of this diversity. Whether it’s Civil War landmarks and historic fortresses like Fort Monroe National Monument, African American heritage sites, the NASA legacy of space exploration at the Virginia Air & Space Center or the seafaring legends founded on four centuries of Chesapeake Bay living, the destination appeals to visitors of all ages and interests.

An ideal way to explore Hampton is to purchase a Sea to Stars Ticket, which includes admission to Virginia Air & Space Center’s exhibits and 3-D Digital IMAX®, Hampton History Museum, the Hampton Carousel and a fascinating three-hour tour aboard the Hampton Queen. Tickets are available for one low price at the Hampton Visitor Center.

With many attractions located within a short walk of the Hampton Visitor Center, guests can easily explore Downtown Hampton on foot.
