The unique architecture of Historic Hilton Village is the perfect backdrop for the eclectic collections of locally owned shops that makes this a “can’t miss” experience. The choices are many and varied and include vintage and consignment clothing, antiques, jewelry, gifts, home furnishings and decorative items. Located along Warwick Boulevard, in the eastern end of Newport News, Historic Hilton Village is also home to several restaurants. City Center at Oyster Point and Port Warwick are two more shopping areas with a “neighborhood” feel. You’ll find specialty retailers offering collectibles, designer shoes, fine cigars, gifts, jewelry, men’s and women’s clothing, organic food, pet gifts, and spa treatments. Both have restaurants within walking distance and regularly scheduled entertainment during the summer months. Combined, Jefferson Commons and Patrick Henry Mall, have over 1 million square feet of great shopping. Favorite national retailers anchor both areas, and offer everything from books, baby clothes and fine wines to shoes, sporting goods, and clothes for the entire family. Surrounding both shopping areas are even more national retailers with many more choices, including toys, tools, housewares, computers, cookware and electronics. Finally, the Denbigh area of Newport News, along Warwick and Denbigh Boulevards in the northern part of our city, also features national retailers. And don’t forget to shop at our network of museum stores for unique and personal gifts – from educational to just plain fun! Make the Newport News Visitor Center your first stop for expert

TESTIMONIALS FOR VISITING FRIENDS AND FAMILY:

Insider Tips LINDSAY & ZACH

Meet Lindsay and Zach Fauver – Zach and Lindsay met as students at Christopher Newport University and decided to stay in Newport News after graduation. Zach, a real estate agent, and Lindsay, a wedding and portrait photographer, live in Hilton Village with their rescued Goldendoodle, Lucy.

The Mariners’ Museum is outstanding for out-of-town visitors. It has incredible exhibits and so many interesting facts to learn. Shopping and dining in City Center is also one of our go-to activities with family.

DOG WALKING:

Hilton Village! We love the sidewalks and friendly atmosphere! We also love to take Lucy on the Noland Trail.

FAVORITE FESTS:

Newport News Fall Festival of Folklife and the Newport News Greek Festival!

OUTDOOR FUN:

We love to walk or run on the Noland Trail, kayak on the James River, and mountain bike in Maury Park behind Riverside Hospital.

NIGHTLIFE:

We are a little obsessed with Hilton Tavern! They have a fantastic beer selection. We love that they support local talent and host live musicians and bands. Brickhouse Tavern is another favorite for a beer and great pizza.

EATING OUT:

Newport News has an outstanding dining scene. Our two favorites for special occasions are 99 Main and Circa 1918. Their chefs are so talented! We also enjoy Salsa’s when we’re craving Mexican food and Hayashi Sushi and Grill for an entertaining Hibachi experience!

DATE NIGHT:

nd a y a s Lind h Fauv}er Zac {& Lucy

A wonderful date night is to watch the sunset on the James River either at the end of the Hilton Pier or at the Lion’s Bridge and then go to “Wine on Wednesday” at 99 Main. We recommend getting dessert to go with your wine... they make the best Maple Bacon Ice Cream!

BARGAIN SHOPPING:

For great deals on name brand clothing, I go to Act II consignment store. Not only can I find quality bargains, but they donate 25% of their proceeds to a local women’s shelter. I decorated my whole house with antique and vintage items from Rooms, Blooms, and More. They take consignments so the selection is always changing!

PHOTO OPS:

We love the water by the Lion’s Bridge, and the Rose Garden at Huntington Park is beautiful for a summertime stroll. We have a tradition of taking our picture in front of the Christmas tree in City Center when it lights up at Hollydazzle– one of our most anticipated events of the year!

ARTS SCENE:

We really enjoy anything at the Ferguson Center, the Downing - Gross Cultural Arts Center (where we held our wedding reception), the Peninsula Community Theatre and the Peninsula Fine Arts Center!

TESTIMONIALS FAVORITE PARKS:

Sydney: Newport News Park. They have a Discovery Center and they have really cool animal exhibits. Layne: One of my favorite parks is Fort Fun near the Hilton area. There are even tables there to have a family picnic right on the river!

BIRTHDAY PARTY SUGGESTIONS:

WHEN FRIENDS AND FAMILY VISIT:

Sydney: I would take them to the Virginia Living Museum. It is really pretty and I know they would love all of the animals. Plus, it is like having all of Virginia under one roof. Layne: We like to go tubing in the James River, climb around in Fort Fun or go to the beach since it is only 45 minutes away.

Insider Tips Meet Sydney and Layne – Friends since kindergarten, Sydney and Layne are middle-school students in Newport News. When they’re not hitting the books, the two 12-yearolds enjoy hanging out with friends, shopping, going to the movies, and painting pottery.

RAINY DAY FUN:

Sydney: Shop, go to the movies or maybe to a museum like The Mariners’ Museum or the Virginia Living Museum. Layne: Rebounderz, a trampoline place where you can jump around, and Ice Plex, the local ice skating rink, is another fun place.

SYDNEY & LAYNE

Both girls agreed on Starving Artist Studio in Port Warwick, where you can paint your own pottery. Other suggestions include Play A Round Golf and Games, the Virginia Living Museum, Regal movie theatre, LazerRush, and Rebounderz.

SHOPPING FOR FRIENDS’ GIFTS:

Sydney: The Boutique at Port Warwick because I love all of the Vera Bradley items there. Sometimes I like to buy things from Claire’s at Patrick Henry Mall. Pier One has really neat things, too. Layne: Patrick Henry Mall because there are so many shops to choose from. Also, Port Warwick and City Center at Oyster Point.

Layne

PAMPERING THE POOCH:

Sydney: Our dog, Gracie, gets pampered at PetSmart. We get her toys and treats from there, too. Layne: I take my dog walking on the Noland Trail at The Mariners’ Museum. I buy him really cute treats at Femmes and Fidos in Port Warwick.

FAVORITE EATERIES TO GET: ■ ■ ■ ■

A burger and fries? Five Guys. Pizza? Azzurri’s and Brickhouse Tavern. Hot Dogs? Hot Dog King. Frozen treats? Sweet Frog and Rita’s.

The Mariners’ Museum, dinner at City Center or Port Warwick.

FAVORITE ATTRACTIONS:

Pfac (Peninsula Fine Arts Center), Downing-Gross Cultural Arts Center, Mariners’ Museum and the Virginia Living Museum. My son loves the otters, and we love the trail at the museum. We walk or run it as a family and watch the turtles swim in the river. Pfac has some really great activities for kids.  Downing-Gross is gorgeous and attracts some really great acts. It’s an up close and intimate atmosphere that’s really enjoyable.

TO RELAX AND FORGET ABOUT THE HUSTLE & BUSTLE OF EVERYDAY LIFE:

The Mariners’ Museum’s Noland Trail, and then a visit to Couture Cakes by Nika in Hilton Village for cupcakes.

EATING OUT:

We like Fin in Port Warwick. The seafood is great. Our kids love Golden Corral—hey, all you can eat. And they can’t get enough of Sweet Frog.

SPECIAL OCCASIONS:

We went to 99 Main recently and had a very nice meal with a group of friends. I always tell people to attend Hollydazzle at Christmastime.

SHOPPING:

Jefferson Crossing and Target. Harold loves Walmart. I love Fresh Market.

Pier One, a place full of fun and colorful items. Tuesday Morning a “hide-and-seek” place with some real deals. Jewelry? Hilton Goldsmith – Talented designer, but also they make you feel like a treasured customer even if you are getting a clasp repaired.

THE FRIENDS’ RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THEIR SPOUSES:

EATING OUT:

Seafood: The Crab Shack – the food is good and the view is magnificent! And Bonefish Grill. Greek/Italian: Luigi’s in Denbigh – great food combined with Sonny, Vinnie and Rita’s hospitality!

We’re literally next-door to Hampton, Jamestown, Williamsburg and Yorktown, plus Norfolk, Portsmouth, Smithfield and Virginia Beach are all less than an hour away.

Amtrak offers daily direct service from Washington, D.C., while the Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport currently includes regular flights on Allegiant, Delta, Frontier and US Airways. More flights are available at both Norfolk International and Richmond International Airports.

Reaching Newport News is simple. Whether you take the scenic route, use the interstate highway network, reach us by plane or train, you’ll find us “right in the middle of everything.” Visit www.newportnews.org for an online interactive map.
