Newport News is a 40 minute drive from Virginia Beach. Minutes from I64, you will find Oyster Point City Center. Since its development began in 2004 the city center has become a platform for events, a meeting place and a shopping district for everyone to enjoy.
Oyster Point City Center would be the perfect place to visit after visiting one of the other Hampton or Newport News or Williamsburg attractions. There are plenty of stores to browse through, also an attractive pond with fountains to walk around and a few waterside eateries.
There is a lovely selection of stores, from traditional clothes stores such as Talbots to interesting furnishing stores like Sisters Unique that sells beautiful and somewhat eclectic home furnishings and accessories. As the center becomes fully developed more and more stores will be coming to this trendy city center, so expect to see a lot more happening here in the future.
If you’re feeling hungry for a meal, or fancy a small snack your taste buds should find something to satisfy them here. There are a number of quality places to choose from. When we visit we try to always stop by Colangelo’s Gelato, they sell scrumptious freshly made ice cream from natural ingredients, they often have new flavors to try too. The firkin Pub offers a delicious selection of food in a relaxed happy atmosphere with pool tables and TV’s offering a selection of sports. If you’re looking for something a bit different try the Hayashi Japanese Steak House and Sushi Restaurant, here you can choose to have your food cooked in front of you or have it served to you at a table in the dining room.
Through many of the Weekends during the Spring and Summer Oyster Point City Center holds special events; these can be anything from live music and dancing, food festivals, or open air films. You can expect a good time at any event at the City Center.
