  American Rover
by Goner

A great way to see the Hampton Roads and the historical waterfront, is to set sail on the American Rover. This is a three-masted 135-foot passenger schooner designed after a 19th century cargo schooner, but the lower deck has an air conditioned coctail lounge and snackbar. The captain points out all the highlights in the harbor and if you wish, you can take a turn at the wheel. The trip lasts for about two hours and brings you up close and personal to the ships in Norfolk Harbor.
