In this video I take you to my 5 favorite outdoor spots in Newport News, Virginia! Living in Newport News can be a lot of fun if you like to be outdoors. While some of the neighboring cities like Hampton and Virginia Beach are going to provide a more coastal, beachy lifestyle, nowhere else has the amazing park scene that Newport News does! Riverview Farm Park: This park, located in the Menchville area of Newport News, features a 1.5 mile walking path, massive playground, soccer fields, two dog parks, and a pier on the James River. There's also a concession stand that's open during the sports season, covered picnic shelters, and large public restrooms. Search homes near Riverview Farm Park here:

Huntington Park: Here you'll find the only beach in Newport News! Located along the James River right by the James River Bridge, and the great restaurant, Crab Shack on the James, this is a great place to swim and soak up the sun. Featuring volleyball nets, a boat launch, playground, covered picnic shelters and more! Search homes near Huntington Park here:

Newport News Park: The second largest municipal park east of the Mississippi River and tenth largest in the whole country! This 7500+ acre park has so much to offer! Hiking trails, biking trails, an 18 hole frisbee golf course, RV Camping sites, archery, paddle boating, and more! One of the truly special places in all of Virginia!

Deer Park: Centrally located in Newport News, this is one of the quieter parks in the area. The two ball fields are used for little league all the time, but the lakefront picnic area, playground, and hiking trails are all less used than some of the bigger parks. This is a great spot to settle down and quietly read a book and go for a walk! Search homes near Dear Park here:

Noland Trail: Noland Trail is a 5 mile loop along the James River that goes around and over Lake Maury. Featuring 14 bridges, and wildlife galore this is my personal favorite spot in Newport News. In addition to the 5 mile trail, there are cut throughs and other mini-loops that provide hiking options of any length. This trail is maintained by the Mariner's Museum, and you'll want to head down to Lion's Bridge, along the James, to enjoy the stunning views, and beautiful birds, including pelicans, herons, osprey, and egrets.
