Hampton VA Medical Center
The City of Hampton has two distinct areas with links to the Chesapeake Bay. The downtown waterfront area has been renovated and welcomes visitors. Attractions downtown include cobblestone streets, brick sidewalks, and shops, restaurants, pubs, galleries, an air and space museum, restored antique carousel, and a waterfront park. The nearby presence of the NASA Langley Research Center has brought the Virginia Air and Space Center to downtown Hampton (600 Settlers Landing Road). The Air and Space Center tells the story of aviation and space exploration and features an IMAX movie theater. In a park next door to the Air and Space Center, visitors can ride on an authentic restored 1920s wooden carousel.
