Nestled among the wooded banks of the James River and bordering the golf course of the James River Country Club, this garden week tour features private homes and gardens in the Merry Point Estates neighborhood. This area of Newport News, with its tranquil park-like setting, is one of the Peninsula’s best kept secrets. Several of the tour homes offer scenic views of the natural beauty of Lake Indigo, Martins Pond and the James River, and are all within a one mile radius. A tour ticket includes entrance to the Peninsula Fine Arts Center and the James River Country Club Golf Museum. The museum is not only the oldest golf museum in the world but, is home to some of the oldest artifacts that date back to the pre-1930s. Tickets are $30 per person until April 21st at 5 pm or may be purchased the day of the tour for $40.
