Seafood Restaurant
$$
“Owned & operated by the Standing Family, Waterman's has a long history that dates back to the 1960s. The building was first called the "Shake n' Burger & Beach Nut Gift Shop," a walk-up burger joint & souvenir shop. In 1981, Mike Sr. & Helen Standing rebuilt the restaurant as "Fogg's Seafood Company" & gave it it's start as an Oceanfront staple. In 1996 when their son, Mike Jr., graduated from college, he entered the picture - creating the addition of "the Attic" nightclub & converting the restaurant to "Waterman's Beachwood Grill." Then in early 2007, the building was expanded & a new concept emerged - "Waterman's Surfside Grille" - an upscale yet casual Oceanfront restaurant.”

Botanical Garden
“I love the outdoors and love different plants. This is such a beautiful place to visit and is so historic to the Hampton Roads area. The butterfly garden is my favorite because they land on your head, fingers, and so on. You can also see the airplanes take off as well. Very family friendly and have a water park for the children. ”
