  • Virginia Sports Hall of Fame
    Whether they're living legends or heroes of ages past, Virginia's many athletic icons get their due in this monument to greatness. Visitors can get the skinny on all of the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame's inductees from their multimedia displays, while the rest of museum pays testament to the commonwealth's athletic history, hometown teams, and the joy of playing sports. Size: The 35,000-square-foot museum's centerpiece in the Hall of Honor, which houses tributes to inductees like athletes, members of the media, and other sports figures. Eye Catcher: It's hard to miss the vibrant colors of the real stock car and racing suit that carried a Virginia driver to the winner's circle in one of NASCAR's centerpiece races. That display anchors the Paul Sawyer Racing Exhibit, which educates visitors about the commonwealth's auto-racing history and gives them a chance to go behind the wheel in a simulator. Permanent Mainstay: In the media center, you can just watch highlights of Virginia's great sports moments, or you can try your hand at becoming the next great color commentator, exclaiming over an extraordinary buzzer-beater or a sprint down the field. Don't Miss: The Chuck Boone Sports Complex, where visitors of all ages can test their own skills during physical baseball, soccer, and football activities.

  • Elizabeth Manor Golf & Country Club
    As the annual host of the Eastern Amateur Golf Championship since 1957, Elizabeth Manor Golf & Country Club's championship course has attracted some of the country's greatest players on their journey to the PGA Tour. As golfers traverse each hole from tee to green, they can imagine themselves tracing the footsteps of Ben Crenshaw and Curtis Strange, both of whom played in the Eastern Amateur before illustrious PGA careers, during which they won a combined four major victories without ever corking a driver. Today, the 6,642-yard, par-70 course still hugs the Elizabeth River, utilizing the natural landscape with a challenging layout originally envisioned by course designer Dick Wilson in 1948. The course also benefits from more recent refurbishments that made the greens and bermuda-grass fairways more resilient. A private establishment, Elizabeth Manor Golf & Country Club complements its golf course with a six-court tennis complex and an Olympic-size, outdoor swimming pool. The club also boasts two restaurants with two patios, where guests can enjoy views of the Elizabeth River and attempt to count the leaves on every tree in the vicinity.
