Norfolk, VA Professional Review and Guide
"Norfolk began as the most prosperous town in Colonial Virginia and has grown to be one of the leading trading ports on the East Coast. Visitors today find Norfolk a bustling financial, cultural and historical center with an international airport and one of the nation’s busiest container-shipping ports. Norfolk offers visitors a surprise package of fun, history and cultural attractions.
You can take a harbor cruise for a close-up view of a working and recreational waterfront, from industrial shipyards and busy tug boats to sleek yachts. You can sail the harbor on a tall-masted ship, enjoy a relaxing dinner cruise, or tour the sights on a replica of a Mississippi riverboat. And you can see the Navy’s powerful fleet with a tour of the Naval Station Norfolk, the world’s largest. After all that, you can relax and unwind on more than seven miles of sandy beach right on the Chesapeake Bay. Norfolk has several fine museums and art galleries, including the world-renowned Chrysler Museum of Art, and NAUTICUS, the National Maritime Center."
