Things to do in between matches and how to get here

Just a few blocks from your downtown hotel, teams can enjoy the Elizabeth River Trail, a 10.5-mile pedestrian and biking trail on the waterfront, sail the Elizabeth River on a tall ship with Rover Cruises or tour the Battleship Wisconsin, one of the largest and last battleships ever built by the U.S. Navy. The Pagoda and Oriental Garden is nearby, a gift from the Taiwan Provincial Government, and history buffs can stroll the cobblestone streets in West Freemason where Victorian homes tower over the sidewalks and roses curl along garden fences. Narrative plaques wind through this area making The Cannonball Trail, a self-guided tour of 400 years of history, showcasing buildings and sites from the turn-of-the-century. You’ll even find a Civil War-era cannonball still lodged in the wall of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church!
