A city with an old soul and youthful enthusiasm. A Coastal Virginia vacation destination with fascinating sights to see and interesting things to do. A convention city with flexible facilities and a confident, can-do attitude.

Situated in the middle of the Hampton Roads region and the heart of the Mid-Atlantic, Hampton welcomes vacationers and meeting attendees alike with charming hospitality, multi-faceted attractions and activities, and an atmosphere of discovery that you'll find pleasantly surprising.

Hampton's legacy as the city "First from the Sea, First to the Stars" is captured in this combination ticket.
