Outdoor Fun

The area around the Virginia Peninsula has a few commercial amusement parks, for a fun day trip. And if you're looking for a more natural retreat/adventure, the area has you covered.

The Sandy Bottom Nature Park has two lakes, wetlands, trails, and non-motorized boating. Visitors can watch wildlife, fish, or picnic, and kids can play on the park playgrounds. This park is about 15 minutes from base.

The Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Reserve protects what remains of the Great Dismal Swamp, now a fairly small wetland area on the border of Virginia and North Carolina. The reserve parkland is available during daylight for bird watching, boating in Lake Drummond, canoeing, fishing and limited hunting.

Bluebird Gap Farm is a petting zoo, park, and show farm with a variety of domestic and harmless cute pettable animals, about 15 minutes from base.

Norfolk has a botanical garden, the Norfolk Botanical Garden, and a zoo, the Virginia Zoological Park, both about 45 minutes from base (but not in the same place). Both feature kids' programming, classes and camps.

Newport News Park is a large city park next to Fort Eustis and next to parts of Colonial National Historic Park, the site of much of the both of the Battles of Yorktown. Visitors to Newport News Park can use the playgrounds, play disc golf, or use the archery range. Colonial Park visitors can see the location of General Washington's camp, and the site of the original Jamestown.

Colonial National Historic Park is in several parts in the area, connecting the three major historic sites of the area, Jamestown, Williamsburg, and Yorktown, by the Colonial Parkway.

Air Power Park is a park, monument, and museum focusing on Virginia's role in air and space technology, history, and development. The museum has several rooms with exhibits on aircraft, aviation, NASA, and different historical periods. There are also several aircraft and rockets on display in the open park.
