If you love to shop, and you wouldn't be reading this if you didn't, you'll love Hampton's three distinctive shopping districts.
Each offers a unique atmosphere as well as a mixture of familiar names and exciting, one-of-kind shops with local flavor.
You'll find everything from A to Z in Hampton's largest shopping area, which includes the exciting Peninsula Town Center, a mixed-use development that combines living with dining, shopping, services and special events. Dining, apparel, electronics, sporting goods, big box stores, specialty shops, medical and dental offices, drycleaners, hair and nail services, grocery stores-you name it and you can shop for it in Coliseum Central.
An urban waterfront village on the Hampton River, downtown Hampton features shopping with a personal touch. You'll discover a collection of delightful shops specializing in clothing, home décor and accessories, antiques, flowers, stationary and photography, plus a fine art gallery and a gift shop dedicated to all things Virginia.
The Phoebus National Historic District encompasses a classic downtown shopping area featuring an array of businesses. Take a stroll around Mallory and Mellen Streets and you'll encounter antique dealers, artisans and crafts workers, music and bookstores, jewelers and florists, a nautical canvasmaker and even a wholesale seafood company.
