If you ever get a chance to visit the National Museum of the Marine Corps off 95 take some time for lunch. You could spend hours there. The lunch is good and reasonable.

Or soak in The Globe and Laurel not far from MCB Quantico back gate - just about 50 years of atmosphere soaked into the walls and memorabilia there.

You have to wear some good clothes to get in there not shorts and T shirts.
