Looking for Something to Do This Saturday, Norfolk Crossing? Lace Up Your Walking Shoes to Embark on an Urban Adventure With Hampton Roads Hikers!

February 13, 2015 2:30 pm

Need an excuse to get out of your Norfolk Crossing rental home and enjoy some fresh air this weekend? Lace up your favorite pair of walking shoes and join the Hampton Roads Hikers as they tour Old Town Portsmouth and Ghent! This "urban adventure" will lead participants on a 90-minute stroll through Old Town Portsmouth, which, for the uninitiated, is home to "the largest collection of antique homes between Charleston, South Carolina and Alexandria, Virginia," per the town's website. After touring Old Town Portsmouth's points of interest, walkers will load the ferry (day passes cost $3), crossing the river to conclude the adventure with a 90-minute walk through Ghent.

So far, more than 20 people have already signed up for the walking tour, but don't be intimidated: The Hampton Roads Hikers exists to be "a positive influence on the overall wellness of our members through fun, social and physical activities." You'll likely make new friends through this fun social club!

Monster Jam Near Norfolk Crossing: Watch Grave Digger Obliterate Obstacles!

February 12, 2015 2:01 pm

Tipping the scale at 5 tons and measuring 12 feet tall, Monster Jam trucks are imposing beasts even on a TV screen—but they're much more impressive in person. Anyone who'd like to see one up-close can head to Monster Jam at the Hampton Coliseum, held this February 14 and 15 near Norfolk Crossing.

Watch while well-known monster trucks like the Grave Digger and Thrasher zip around the arena, flying over rows of junkyard-ready cars or smashing through massive obstacles. The sights and sounds of the Monster Jam show should be enough to engage any member of your family, no matter how young or old. Shows will only be held at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday, so grab your tickets ahead of time to secure your spot!
