About Newport News
Located in the Tidewater region of Virginia, the city of Newport News is a historical hub which is also home to one of the more popular Naval Shipyards in the United States. Newport News is one of the 'Seven Cities' of the 757 area code of this area which also comprises of the cities of Norfolk, Portsmouth, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Suffolk, and Hampton. Newport News, Virginia is named in the honor of Captain Christopher Newport, who was a captain of a supply ship from England that came to Jamestown in the earliest years of the colony. There is also evidence at nearby College of William and Mary that says that the city was named in the honor of the Newce family who wanted to start a bustling seaport in a new location. Either way, Newport News offers everything from history right on to the current day and this part of the country and their massive contributions to the United States Navy. The biggest plus about visiting Newport News is its close proximity to the beaches at Virginia Beach to the world class attractions that come to the Norfolk Scope and Chrysler Hall in downtown Norfolk. The whole Hampton Roads area gives you a lot to choose from when it comes to visiting. If you want a little bit everything, try visiting Newport News, Virginia.
