I was stationed in the Air Force at Langley AFB in Hampton for 8 1/2 years. I left the area in 1989. Virginia is one of the most beautiful states. So it will depend on your likes and dislikes. There is a lot of history in Virginia. The Douglas MacArthur museum is right in Norfolk. Granby street in Norfolk is a lively area for restaurants and bars, as is The Waterside. You are not far from Virginia Beach. The dogwoods and azaelas will be beautiful in the spring so you might want to see the Norfolk Botanical gardens. I'm sure your son will show you around the base, but you can take a boat tour past aircraft carriers, nuclear submarines, and guided missile carriers. There is the National Maritime museum in Norfolk. About an 1 1/2 hours North is Yorktown, Jamestown, and Colonial Williamsburg. There is so much to see and do you won't have enough time to do it all. Check out this
for more information on the Norfolk area. Now you've made me want to take a trip to Virginia. I still have Air Force friends in the area, and a brother-in-law up by Williamsburg.
