Life’s a Beach in Norfolk
With scenic shorelines, Naval history and cultural venues as well as great seafood, Norfolk and the nearby Chesapeake Bay area should not be missed on a trip through Virginia. Below are some of the points of interest visitors should not miss on their travels through the region.
- Entertainment & Amusement Parks — From the nightclubs and bars of downtown Norfolk to the 16 water slides at Ocean Breeze Waterpark in Virginia Beach, there is much to amuse and excite. Stroll along the waterfront and there is a good chance you’ll find one of the many year-round festivals of food and music. The "NorVa" has been voted by Rolling Stone as one of the best live music venues in the country. The Attucks Theater, meanwhile, was once known as “The Apollo of the South.”
- Arts & Cultural — Did you know that Norfolk is home to one of the top museums in the United States? The world class collection at the Chrysler Museum of Art isn’t all that Norfolk has to offer. There are superb gardens and docent-led tours at the Hermitage Museum. Visit the Harrison Opera House, home stage to the Virginia Opera, or get a ticket to see the Virginia Symphony Orchestra at the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts. Meanwhile, more than one million people from around the world have experienced more than 500 performances at Newport News’ Ferguson Center for the Performing Arts.
- Restaurants & Shopping — From the unique shops in Norfolk’s Ghent district and Olde Towne Portsmouth to the outlets in Newport News, there’s more than enough to keep a shopaholic happy. Buy original art or just to browse at the D’Art Center, home to 28 working studios. When you get hungry, enjoy fresh oysters.
- Golf Courses & Sports Venues — From minor league baseball and hockey to a tee time at Ocean View, one of the oldest public golf courses in the area, sports fans can find plenty to enjoy on their trip through Norfolk. Take in a ball game at picturesque Harbor Park, home field of the Norfolk Tides, the AAA affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, or cheer on the Norfolk Admirals hockey team at the Norfolk Scope. Golf Digest rates the Newport News Golf Course at Deer Run at 3.5 stars. Honey Bee Golf Course, set in the heart of Virginia Beach, is one of the area’s most popular daily fee golfing venues.
- Historic Sites & Landmarks — Norfolk is a Navy town. The famed naval base is home port to more than 78 ships of the Atlantic Fleet, making it the world's largest naval installation. But there’s much more to see in and around Norfolk, ranging from the MacArthur Memorial, the Ghent Historic District and Fort Norfolk to the birthplace of Robert E. Lee, the Victory Arch in Newport News and the Old Cape Henry Lighthouse in Virginia Beach.
- Parks & Outdoor Activities — With the Chesapeake Bay, the Atlantic Ocean and countless rivers, visitors are never far from the water. Take a tour of the Elizabeth River harbor on a tall ship, go boating at Westmoreland State Park on the Potomac River’s Northern Neck or enjoy one of Norfolk’s four beach parks. With 38 miles of shoreline, Virginia Beach is a famed resort destination and Newport News features some of the best fishing in Coastal Virginia. Landlubbers can tour the Norfolk Botanical Garden or hike the old growth forest at Caledon State Natural Area in King George.
