Words on Wheels - Words on Wheels

Bring a group of friends and join us for Words on Wheels to tour Downtown Hampton, Phoebus, and Fort Monroe to collect letters. 

This self-paced bike ride event will start and end at the Phoebus Waterfront Park (East Mellen Street). After teams collect letters from participating businesses, teams return to play words on over-sized boards to see who can build a word with the highest point value. This event is a great way to peek into some new businesses, bike casually, and play a classic board game.
