“A hidden gem. Should be a must for any traveler to the Chesapeake's western shore! http://www.annmariegarden.org/annmarie2/ A delightful art gallery and outdoors sculpture garden affiliated with the Smithsonian. The Fairy Trail is special fun for little ones, with the challenge of finding dozens and dozens of fairy houses hidden in the woods along the garden trail. They offer classes, events, programs, exhibits, and garden. Seasonal events include a farmers and makers market in the spring/summer/fall; Artsfest in September; a Halloween walk that supports the local food banks; a Christmas lights display. The gift shop has lovely, high quality items.”

“I love this historic house so much I volunteer as a docent, bartender, and more. Mr Paca was one of the 4 signers of the Declaration of Independence from Maryland and one of our first governors. The house is beautifully restored to the 18th century - the Gardens are exquisite! ”

“The History Museum provides a look at 400+ years of history, from Native American times, through English settlement, the Revolution, Civil War, both world wars, and the economic transformation from the sea (fish, oysters, crabs) to the stars, complete with NASA and astronauts. The film "Hidden Figures" was based here at Hampton's NASA facility.”

“A must see and experience if you are in to the history of everything boating and the history of the area. Very worth a trip-This 18-acre (73,000 m2) interactive museum was founded in 1965 on Navy Point, once a site of seafood packing houses, docks, and work boats. Today, the Museum houses the world's largest collection of Chesapeake Bay boats and provides interactive exhibits in and around the 35 buildings which dot the campus. The Museum also offers year-round educational seminars and workshops.”
