My wife and I are excited about this trip. My Grandson is in the Navy, stationed in Norfolk. They just had their first child, and made us Great Grandparents. We are driving from near Knoxville , TN, first to just west of Fredericksburg, VA, to visit a niece, and aunt (sickness) and then on to Newport News, to see the baby. The trip will start about the middle of August and will end when we get tired and want to go home.
I have heard, and I can see, there is a lot of interesting things to see and do along the way. I know I could pick some and maybe leave out the best out of ignorance, so I need help if anyone has any advice on MUST see attractions. We have visited Fredericksburg before, and the battle fields nearby, and we have visited the old cemetery (Hollywood?) in Richmond, and little else.
