What can you learn about the shipbuilding industry in Newport News, VA?

Newport News has a rich history in the shipbuilding industry, and today, it is home to the only builder and refueler of U.S. Navy aircraft carriers, Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS). NNS is also one of only two providers of U.S. Navy submarines and is the largest industrial employer in Virginia.

The shipyard was founded in 1886, and by 1891, it had delivered its first ship, a tugboat named Dorothy. By 1897, the USS Nashville, Wilmington, and Helena, all U.S. Navy warships, had been completed by the shipyard. NNS was also responsible for seven of the 16 battleships that made up Theodore Roosevelt's Great White Fleet.

Before the end of 1941, the shipyard had supplied 243 ships to the U.S. Navy. Things didn't quieten down after the war when the NNS turned its hand to passenger liners, including the transatlantic speed record holder, the SS United States. Two of the largest tankers ever built came out of the shipyard in the 1970s, and the 1980s saw the construction of nuclear aircraft carriers and nuclear attack submarines. Since 1999, the NNS has specialized and now only produces warships for the U.S. Navy.

The Mariners' Museum and Park, encompassing America's National Maritime Museum, provides an opportunity to find out more about this fascinating shipyard and the other maritime history from the Newport News area. The museum is surrounded by a 550-acre park, including the 167-acre Lake Maury, so you can enjoy nature and some hiking as part of your day. In case that isn't enough reason to visit, there are events throughout the year, including bird-watching, a beer festival, and organized runs.

Newport News, Virginia, is often overshadowed by its glitzier, more well-known neighbors, but this makes a visit all the more worthwhile. You can enjoy great historic attractions and beautiful green spaces with smaller crowds and better value prices. There's a whole host of restaurants and shops to try out, as well as a broad variety of hotels providing something for all needs and budgets. Newport News has plenty to fill any itinerary, but if you somehow manage to see everything the city has to offer, then the surrounding areas are easily accessible.
