Norfolk Travel Guide

Like many other old Southern towns, Norfolk has undergone a renaissance, one that's especially visible in the charming shops and cafés in the historic village of Ghent. It's a popular summer port of embarkation now for cruises to the Bahamas and Bermuda, but there's plenty to see in this old navy town for those who want to stay awhile. Stroll through Waterside, with shops close to the water, walk to the excellent Nauticus Museum, and make sure to stop at MacArthur's burial site. This maritime city offers many opportunities to kayak, fish or cruise the harbor.
