Overview Of The Port Of Norfolk

About Norfolk
Norfolk is an independent city in the Commonwealth of Virginia in the United States of America.

The Nauticus Maritime Centre includes a hands-on ocean related science and technology centre and battleship U.S.S. Wisconsin, one of the last battleships built by the U.S. Navy. There is also a Naval Museum here.

The Armed Forces Memorial on the nearby waterfront features poignant letters, cast in bronze, from soldiers who did not make it back from battle.

The Douglas MacArthur Memorial features exhibits and artefacts from the Spanish American War, World Wars I and II, the occupation of Japan and the Korean War.

Take a walking tour and explore historic Norfolk on foot via Journey to Freedom, Hampton Roads' Cannonball Trail and the Underground Railroad.

The Chrysler Museum of Art is the city's art showplace, featuring permanent exhibitions of American and European masterpieces along with collections of decorative arts and glass.

MacArthur Center Mall features some 140 stores, movie theatres and restaurants.

A good family option is the 100 year old Virginia Zoo in Norfolk with giraffes, zebras, elephants, lions and white rhinos amongst it's collection.

There are plenty of boutiques, antique shops, restaurants and cafes in the neighbourhood of Ghent.

Nearby Virginia Beach, a 20 minute drive away features a boardwalk, where you can rent bikes and roller blades. Virginia Beach is also home to the Virginia Marine Science Museum and First Landing State Park with 27 miles of hiking and cycling trails.

Take a drive over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. The views are great and it's a good place for bird watching.

Historic Colonial Williamsburg is 45 minutes away, this living history museum features American life from 1699 to 1780. Also near Williamsburg is Busch Gardens theme park.
