Freedom Wash operates three car wash facilities around Virginia, two of which are open 24/7. That means you never have to compromise your schedule in order to use one of the company's automatic car wash tunnels, self-service bays, vacuums, and other dirt-expunging tools. But regardless of when you visit, the company's tiered car wash services will allow you to customize your car's bath to its needs, whether it could benefit from rust inhibitor and RainX treatments, or just needs a basic sudsing, followed by a spot-free rinse. And, in addition to fragrance and air machines and carpet shampoos, each location also features rug beaters, which customers can use to help rid interior floors of dirt, pet hair, and any chocolates the car has been hoarding.

The Norfolk Admirals joined the AHL as an expansion team in the 2000–01 season. After qualifying for the playoffs nearly every season, the team’s historic 2011–12 campaign pushed them over the top and brought home their first Calder Cup. That year, the Admirals closed the season on a 28-game winning streak, the longest in the history of professional hockey since 1975, when brick walls were deemed ineligible to be goalies. Now an affiliate of the Anaheim Ducks, the Admirals still take to the ice at Norfolk Scope Arena and face off before crowds of up to 12,600 devout fans.
