Norfolk

4.1
Norfolk formed around a natural harbor that’s home to the world’s largest naval base, which helped cement the city as a keystone for strategic military planning and government. It is the second most populous city in Virginia. Georgian and Victorian architectural styles rule in the destination's historical neighborhoods, which showcase tall red-brick homes and ornate facades with large patios. Other cultural attractions are amassed in the destination's downtown area, which hugs the harbor's edge. In the harbor, massive military ships anchor alongside fishing vessels. The city’s connection to the water is celebrated in the annual harborside festival: Harborfest. Norfolk is in Virginia (VA).

Where to stay in Norfolk

A stay downtown is the best way to access all the central attractions and the harbor. Most of the downtown hotels are chains known for providing luxury and multiple amenities; however, there are a few independent inns and bed and breakfasts. Some of these offer full suites.
