Explore all the sites and attractions in this city while sticking to your budget with a Newport News vacation package. This place has deep roots in maritime culture, so you’ll have to stop by the Mariners Museum to check out exhibits such as the USS Monitor Center Abandon Ship: Stories of Survival and Defending the Seas. After learning about the ocean, stroll the grounds of Endview Plantation, an 18th-century house and final resting spot for Revolutionary War soldiers.
Want to feel like you’re walking the streets of Athens? Spend a day at the Newport News Greek Festival. Held in the spring and fall, guests eat classic Greek dishes like lamb gyros and pastitsio.
