  • 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.

  • Great White Water Sports
    Great White Water Sports creates a harmony with the gentle crash of waves, the powerful growls of jet skis, and the excited yelps of families as they launch a variety of jet-ski rentals right from the sands of Chesapeake Bay. Ranked second on the Norfolk activity list by TripAdvisor, and backed by favorable attention from USA Today, their lifeguard-trained team also saddles up jet skis in waters warmer than the Atlantic and with smaller waves. Their jet skis are not equipped with any speed-restriction devices, allowing guests to rev up their engines and feel the wind hit their faces as they send wake waves rolling shoreward.

  • Virginia Zoo
    Before visitors to the AZA-accredited Virginia Zoo see any of its live animals, a life-size statue of an African elephant greets them. The zoo's 53 acres of landscaped grounds have welcomed new sculptures, enclosures, and eco-friendly innovations in recent decades that build on a 100-year legacy of conservation. Mammals such as African lions and kangaroos, birds such as rhino hornbills and African crowned cranes, and a variety of snakes and amphibians roam themed habitats—some of which are interactive or equipped with viewing bubbles that protect visitors from any monkeys with paintball guns. Visitors can view these protected creatures by walking or by taking a narrated ride on the Zoo Train, a one-third scale working model of a C.P. Huntington steam engine. Zoo staffers work to preserve 16 of the resident species through cooperative breeding, field projects, and reintroduction initiatives as part of the AZA's Species Survival Programs. Each year, Virginia Zoo staff and volunteers work together to design and plant 10 themed gardens filled with colorful exotic plants, many of which are given as treats to their 400 animals. In the garden, visitors can learn about composting, using rain barrels, and ticketing littering garden gnomes. Projects, such as recycling old tires into planters and industrial spools into stepping stones, teach children about reuse, too. The zoo also builds on its conservation efforts with an array of environmental conservation programs. Staffers use only natural rainfall and drip irrigation to water the gardens, establish rain gardens to absorb runoff, and educate visitors on environmentally friendly gardening practices in the eco-garden—earning the zoo a designation as a Virginia Green attraction.

  • Sail Nauticus
    Sail Nauticus enriches the lives of community members, most especially kids, with lessons focusing on fun, science, and responsibility, taught through the lens of sailing.

They also make use of the Harbor 20 keelboat that is a safe, timeless sailing vessel on which guests can explore the river, its ecosystems, and its sounds, either on a relaxing cruise or a hands-on sailing lesson.

  • Peninsula Fine Arts Center
    Peninsula Fine Arts Center isn't a passive art museum where guests stare silently at paintings and statues. Instead, the center uses rotating exhibitions of paintings, photographs, and pottery to inspire visitors to create their own artwork. To that end, the exhibiting artists often teach in the center's Studio Art School. Classes range from single-day workshops to 10-week sessions, during which instructors might teach small groups to paint with watercolors or change out a flat pottery wheel. The instructors keep their schedule balanced, leading classes that suit all ages and skill levels. Other classes, such as Little Helping Hands Adventure in Clay, let kids and adults create artwork together. Kids don't need to sign up for classes to try out their art skills, however. In the Hands On for Kids interactive gallery, young patrons draw on a chalkboard wall, build with blocks, and complete various projects inspired by the exhibitions.

  • Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art
    To stay true to the ever-changing genre it represents—and keep security guards entertained despite their short attention spans—the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art continually changes the artwork that adorns its 6,300 square feet of exhibition space. Though the exhibits predominately feature work from living artists, from the nature-inspired art of Richmond native Sayaka Suzuki to the fantastical landscapes of Jean-Pierre Roy, seminal pieces from late legends settle in from time to time, such as an Andy Warhol exhibit that borrowed pieces from the artist's eponymous gallery and banana farm in Pittsburgh. Beyond its exhibits, MOCA also promotes art education through studio-art classes—sometimes taught by the very virtuosos whose works grace the museum walls—and outreach programs. Held twice a year on the shores of Virginia Beach, outdoor art shows invite national artists to compete in juried contests by signing their own names on lost Picassos.
