Virginia's Eastern Shore Sights

Wallops Island

Published 07/22/2015

Fodor's Review

NASA's Wallops Flight Facility Visitors Center fires the imagination with full-scale rockets, films on space and aeronautics, and displays on NASA projects. Although this was the site of early rocket launchings and NASA occasionally sends up satellites here, the facility now focuses primarily on atmospheric research.
