Greater Hilton

There is something Old World and nostalgic about this unique area of Newport News.  Full of sidewalks and green areas, there is no shortage of runners, cyclists, children at the playground and folks walking their dogs. Hilton is a very "lived" in neighborhood.  It has it's own Women's Club and Garden Club. The neighborhood  association hosts events that would seem long lost to the hustle and bustle of modern lifestyles. From Easter egg hunts and 4th of July parades, to spring and fall festivals; Hilton is the place to grow your family and create irreplaceable memories.

The Hilton Elementary area is home to a 100 year old school with a playground on the James River. It is also home of the Hilton fishing pier, beach, and kayak launch (coming soon). The Hilton Ravine, also in this area, is a neighborhood favorite with it's a walking trail and bench seating for gatherings. 

Historic Hilton Village Business District is only a short stroll or bike ride away. There you'll find boutiques, antique stores and a variety of retail options.  This area is also home to some of the best restaurants and bakeries on the Peninsula. The Main Street Library is also in this area, along with the Hilton Community Garden. 

On the south end of Hilton there is a walkable bridge that connects the neighborhood to Huntington Park. This 60 acre park is home to the Huntington Beach, Fort Fun play ground area, Huntington Tennis Center, Peninsula YMCA, War Memorial Museum, Rose Garden, and the James River fishing pier  which is nestled beside the iconic Crab Shack on the James Restaurant. 

The north end of of Hilton connects to Mariners' Park. This 550-acre park offers a break from city life with a quiet and serene place to walk, hike, or run amongst rolling woodlands and features the award-winning five-mile Noland Trail that surrounds the 167-acre Mariners' Lake.
