2017 Newport News Visitor Guide Now Available

Posted on January 9, 2017 at 8:43 AM by Communications Department

Hard copies of the 2017 Newport News Visitor Guide are now available to visitors and residents. This free 28-page full-color publication, also available online, is packed with information about all there is to see and do in Newport News. Back this year are two “first-person” testimonials from residents, who give insider tips on everything from eating out and bargain shopping to nightlife and outdoor fun!
The guide includes three pages of restaurants – listing more than 50 establishments, both nationally known chains and local favorites – and a four-page calendar of events that includes highlights on the city’s most popular events, such as the One City Marathon, World Arts Celebration, Fall Festival of Folklife, Celebration in Lights, and Hollydazzle. There’s also a spotlight on Ella Fitzgerald, who was born in Newport News in April 1917. Check out the special events we have planned throughout the year that tell the story of Ella’s extraordinary life and legacy. Also find clip-able coupons inside that provide discounted admission to various local attractions and a coupon for 25% off any purchase over $20 at the Newport News Visitor Center gift shop. Complimentary copies of the Visitor Guide are available for pickup at the Newport News Visitor Center, 13560 Jefferson Ave., and at businesses and attractions throughout Newport News.
