City Center

Centrally located in midtown Newport News, City Center is a mixed-use development that combines the best of urban living with high-end retail and office space. All year around music and entertainment congregate around the eight-acre fountain, particularly during the holiday season. 



Ferguson Center for the arts

A highlight of Christopher Newport University, the Ferguson Center for the Arts provides world-class arts and entertainment for the Peninsula. Each year artists as Bobby McFerrin and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, or accomplished speakers such as Madeleine Albright, walk it's stage.



Newport News shipbuilding

Newport News Shipbuilding is the largest employer in the state of Virginia. Building all-manner of vessels for our nation's military, the shipyard is the core of our city's industry, as well as its heart.
