  • Ha, I just moved from there in January!!! We are back in NC. Newport New park is fun, they have a few different parks. Also, in the early evening you can watch the deer, they feed them at the discovery center(I think that's what it's called). If you are military, you get into Busch Gardens or WaterCountry for free once. I'd suggest WaterCountry. Just watch your daughter, mine fell and broke her arm there. Williamsburg is beautiful. I know people that like to go to Jamestown beach, but there are jellyfish there, so we never went.

  • We lived on post, too. Hated it. I hope you have a better experience. They should have pamphlets at the ACS building of different places, no necessarily in town. There is a lot to do around the state, state parks and such. I know a lot of people go to VA beach and the outer banks. We just didn't. But we love the area, so what you can to explore, there really is a lot to offer.sunglasses mini
