Movie Theater
“Get a taste of marine history including the Merrimac and the Monitor and the Battle of Hampton Roads during the Civil War. A new exhibit of the America's Cup includes a huge catamaran from the 2013 America's Cup. I still remember the fascinating Ship Model Gallery from my childhood. It made quite an impression --tiny ships in great detail. Admission is only $1 from Memorial Day to Labor Day. ”

Park
“Great place to walk/run surrounded by trees. There is a visitor's center with snakes for viewing and a lake with a dog park nearby. There are trails ranging from .5 miles to about 3.5 miles and maps to help you decide which path you'd like to travel.”
