I would assume the first poster meant Newport News and not Newport, RI. If you are spending any time in NN, then I would recommend renting a car as a shuttle could get you there from Norfolk, but you will need a car to get around and see any sites (Mariners Museum, War Memorial, Virginia Living Museum, etc.). I live in NN for a decade so if you have any questions, feel free to ask. It is about 30 minutes (barring any beach traffic) from Norfolk to Newport News.
