iFly: Indoor sky diving flight-simulator. Yes. You read that right! No jumping, no falling and no experience required!

Virginia Beach Aquarium: Over 800,000 gallons, more than a hundred hands-on exhibits and a National Geographic 3D theater!

If you can’t beat them….

By the year 2000, Bob Barnum and Charlie Laurens alternated as the #1 sales and listing agents for Rose & Womble, with each inching past the other from the month prior. As such, a friendly but competitive friendship emerged as they consulted each for advice and bounced ideas off each other while leading teams of their own.
