Norfolk

Trip Planner USA  /  Virginia  /  Norfolk
(4.1/5 based on 5,000+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: museums, sightseeing, parks
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. With the Inspirock international travel planner, Norfolk and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.
