The City of Norfolk brings together the best of luxury living and waterfront amusements. The Botanical Garden and Virginia Zoo host microcosms of local and exotic living things to coax you outdoors, while the Chrysler Museum of Art, Chrysler Hall, and the Harrison Opera House offer something to appeal to every aesthetic. Those with a passion for the sea will be enticed by Nauticus, an interactive, maritime-themed science center that features tours of the battleship USS Wisconsin. The three-story MacArthur Center boasts some of the best shopping in Hampton Roads. No matter your style, everyone can enjoy a relaxing evening at Harbor Park to watch the sun set on the water.

Not only is Norfolk a wonderful city to spend the weekend in, but it is situated near some of the most popular tourist destinations on the East Coast. The Historic Triangle formed by Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown provides even more opportunities to experience the history, arts, and cultural life of Hampton Roads. Each city offers its own buffet of dining, shopping, and attractions, and each merits several return visits.
