I grew up in Hampton and remember taking the ferry from what was to become Strawberry Banks to Ocean View. HRBT built in '57...does that make me old?... And for all you Hampton Roads oldies, the amusement parks at both Buckroe Beach and Ocean View were pretty cool as a kid. And the Chamberlain Hotel, Fort Monroe, Mariner's Museum, the Lion's Bridge...

As others have said, no toll. Enjoy your stay in VA Beach!

Thanks for the help. Wife really wants to look at that new camper in Richmond. Since we are going down Thursday was hoping for a little reprieve on the traffic. Was thinking of taking 460 down to 58 and up to 264. Thanks for the heads up about I-64 construction.

checked the tolls last night and see they upped the Bay Bridge tunnel to $39 each way for my rig.
Maybe I'm just out of touch these days. But that seems a tad excessive to me.

I'm not an expert. But I play one on the internet.

Yeah, used to be $28. First time I stopped and that number popped up on the toll meter the wife's eyeballs almost popped out. Couple years later and it went up to $31, now it jumped to $39. Real pain cause it's 85 miles more to go around, and that's 10 gallons of diesel for me. So in the long run I'd be saving $14 and taking an hour more time. Just crazy that down and back it adds almost $100 to my trip.

460 is the way to go in my opinion. We take that route when we go. No traffic, no tunnels, no tolls.
What dealership are you looking at in Richmond. Just curious. I had a bad experience with one dealership there on a Jayco.
