The Spirit of Norfolk sailing in front of the Nauticus National Maritime Museum.Traveler's Guide to Norfolk Tourism

We don't pretend to be travel consultants, but we do know our own home town, and we hear from our customers how much they enjoyed this visit and hated the other one. So after twenty years in this business, we can pass on a few suggestions about what to see, where to stay, and how to play when visiting Norfolk. One thing you can count on. Unlike some of the tourism pros, nobody is paying us to recommend the attractions we list here. Read our tourist suggestions with confidence.

Norfolk Waterfront

Pictured above right, the City's downtown hub rests on the shore of the Elizabeth River. Once known primarily for its busy shipping traffic the area now serves as a thriving cultural and social center for the Hampton Road’s region’s 1.5 million residents. Attractions include The Waterside Festival Marketplace and Town Point Park, Nauticus National Maritime Center (the large grey building in the center of the photo), the American Rover tall ship river tour, The MacArthur Memorial and the sparkling new MacArthur Center luxury mall, and the Spirit of Norfolk luxury yacht (shown in the foreground) for lunch and dinner cruises. Trolley and Ferry Tours start adjacent to the Waterside and cover all the major attractions in the downtown area. A newer picture would show the Battleship Wisconsin, now moored next to the Nauticus National Maritime Museum and arguably the world's largest museum artifact. Tours of the mighty battlewagon started in mid April 2001. For more information on touring Norfolk, see the Norfolk Convention and Visitors Bureau web site.
