Colonial Williamsburg: It’s hard to beat a trip to Colonial Williamsburg. Not only are visitors transported back to the 1700s, but they'll experience it interactively, making it a historical hit for all members of the family. Tours of historical buildings, live-action reenactments of the first settlers and even eating at a period restaurant come together to make this an immersive experience

Yorktown Battlefield: Explore the site of the last major battle of the Revolutionary War, where Britain's General Cornwallis surrendered to General Washington. Head to the park visitor center and start the day with a film, explore the museum, and take one of the ranger guided tours.  Historic Yorktown is just a short walk from the visitor center, but there is also take a free trolley available for getting around the village.

Busch Gardens Williamsburg: A huge perk to Naval Weapons Station Yorktown is its proximity to Busch Gardens. While this attraction is sure to be a favorite on any given day, the holidays are an especially fun time to visit. 

Norfolk Zoo: Another family favorite is the Norfolk Zoo. Located 45 minutes southeast of the base, the zoo is an outing where the kids will find all their favorite animals, like lions, giraffes, and elephants. And don’t forget a change of clothes! Situated right out front is the splash garden, a perfect place for kids to cool off after walking to say hello to their nature friends. 

Children’s Museum Of Virginia Portsmouth: There may be no better rainy day outing than a visit to the Children’s Museum. Come spend a few hours letting the kids explore and put their minds to work through imagination. 

Virginia Air and Space CenterExpand the world at the Virginia Air & Space Science Center. Here, visitors can explore interactive displays and lose themselves in the newly renovated IMAX theater showcasing scientific discoveries.
