With the Chesapeake Bay, Atlantic ocean and countless rivers in our backyard, you are never far from the water in Norfolk. You can experience intense watersports, leisurely sails, or simply enjoy the view from your hotel room. If history is your thing, sign up for a boat or land tour of the world’s largest Naval Base, stop by the MacArthur Memorial, or walk the Cannonball Trail. Tour the historic Elizabeth River harbor on a majestic tall ship, sip on some of the best wines around at Mermaid Winery, or watch world-renowned artists blow glass at the Chrysler Museum Glass Studio. Visit the historic triangle of Jamestown, Yorktown, and Williamsburg, or Norfolk’s own Botanical Gardens. There are numerous area museums of interest to all service branches: Nauticus and the USS Wisconsin, the Military Aviation Museum, Mariner’s Museum, Casemate Museum, Army Transportation Museum, the Hampton Air & Space Museum, and more.
