Why Fly to Newport News?
Nestled in the Hampton Roads metropolitan area of Virginia, Newport News draws in a variety of visitors: history buffs, military enthusiasts and people who just appreciate pretty scenery. The Lee Hall Mansion is one of the last remaining antebellum homes on the Virginia Peninsula, and was used as a headquarters by Confederate generals Johnston and Magruder. The Mariners’ Museum has been designated by Congress as "America's National Maritime Museum," with good reason: the USS Monitor Center allows visitors to walk aboard a full-scale Monitor replica. Outside of Newport News, toward Yorktown and Williamsburg, visitors will find American Civil War battle sites and preserved plantations. When you've had your fill of military fare, take advantage of the Newport News's proximity to both mountains and water. Bike up a mountain, ride a canoe or have a picnic on the beach. Or do all three in one day; you won't have to travel far from any of centrally-located Newport News hotels.
