Explore Our Outdoors


No matter what kind of outdoor adventure you are looking for, Newport News offers it all! What’s more, our moderate climate coupled with our excellent location makes Newport News the perfect place to explore year-round. Discover the exhilarating experience of mountain biking, a romantic paddleboat or canoe ride, or a challenging round of championship golf. Enjoy the chance to meet a variety of wild furry friends and the opportunity to experience a peaceful picnic at sunset, overlooking the mighty James River. These endless photographic opportunities and more await you in one or more of our 30+ parks. Click here for a complete listing.

Want more? Stroll one of our beaches, go bird watching or disc golfing or try your luck at catching some salt or freshwater fish in our lakes, reservoirs or the Chesapeake Bay, where you’ll find some of the best fishing in Virginia! Click here for more information on fishing in Newport News.

You’ll definitely need a rest after all this exercise! If so, reserve one of our 188 modern campsites at Newport News Park. At 7,711 acres, it is one of the largest municipal parks east of the Mississippi River.
