Norfolk, Virginia - City Overview

Oct 7, 2017

Norfolk is a town where the water is never far away! It’s a beautiful place to visit with a vibrant arts scene, mouthwatering gastronomy and 144 miles of shore to explore solo, with friends or with the entire family. One of the best ways to get oriented is to get out on the water. Set sail aboard The American Rover. This three-masted topsail schooner has been a signature site along the Elizabeth River and Hampton Roads Harbor since 1986, offering 1 ½ and 2 hour narrated Harbor or Sunset Cruises, from April through October. Norfolk is divided into distinct neighborhoods each with its own identity. On a map you’ll note the downtown, historic Ghent, Chelsea, North Colley & Beyond, The Military Highway and the airport and finally, Ocean view and East Beach. It’s not every day, you can step foot on board a decommissioned battleship. In Norfolk, right downtown on the waterfront, say hello to the USS Wisconsin. She saw tours in WWII, Korea and the Gulf War. You can take a guided or self-guided tour. I suggest purchasing a Gold ticket. This gives you access to the battleship and Nauticus. This is the maritime-themed science center and museum. Chrysler Museum of Art is home to a collection of nearly 30,000 objects spanning 5,000 years of history. The Chrysler Museum of Art possesses one of the great glass collections in America.
