    Hampton sits on the edge of Virginia

    Thankfully, it’s been over 100 years since the formidable walls and bulwarks of Fort Monroe have held loaded cannons. That makes it much easier for families and travelers to settle in Hampton vacation rentals on the edge of Virginia these days, and means there's oodles of military history to get through to boot. Throw in the uber-old St John's Church, some NASA research centers, some of America's most prestigious aviation museums, local seafood joints, and a stretch of powdery beach with crashing surf, and there are plenty of reasons to pass this way on your vacation

    Unravel American history in Hampton

    Hampton has the distinction of hosting one of the largest colonial fortresses in the whole country, which naturally makes it a jewel for history lovers. Head out across Mill Creek to see it, or hire a private tour guide to the National Historic Register monument to unravel tales of imprisoned Confederate presidents and early settlers. After that, it's surely time to unwind on the Virginian beaches, which stretch northwards from the fort in a medley of sandy dunes, rickety fishing piers, and historic lighthouses.

    Hampton is home to forts and fascinating airfields

    Get one of the beautiful and big Hampton vacation rentals just to the north of Fort Monroe if you're eager to explore this city's long strands of American history with the whole family. Not only will bedding down there offer easy access to the old colonial citadel, but also walking access to Buckroe Beach, which is the best spot for lazing in the Virginian sun and taking a dip in the Atlantic. Also, don't forget Hampton's long association with aviation – check out the Virginia Air & Space Center and the WW2 plane exhibits at the Air Power Park for that.

    Head to Hampton in the summer for heat

    Every traveler to Hampton loves to fuse long history tours of old Fort Monroe with afternoons spent relaxing on the Virginian beachfronts. To ensure you have the weather for both, consider booking those Hampton vacation rentals in the summer, between the months of June and August. That's when temperatures tend to hover around the high 70s, and there's less chance of rain than in the early spring. Fall – in September and October – can also be a good time to visit, on account of enduring heat and plenty of rainless days.

    Hampton hits the Atlantic bays

    Hampton sits where the James River, the York River and Chesapeake Bay all combine to crash into the Atlantic Ocean. The meeting of these major waterways is what gives the town its wealth of coastal stretches, hitting their zenith with the pretty beaches of Buckroe Park. Some regional refuges aren't open to the public, but the wild, windswept sandy spits of Grandview Nature Preserve are the perfect place to catch a glimpse of what the untouched Virginian coast looks like – expect dune walks, panoramic sea kayaking, gorgeous sunrise views, and some top wintertime paths for dogs.
