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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Yorktown Battlefield and Cape Henry Lighthouse. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Bruton Parish Episcopal Church and Colonial Williamsburg. Change things up with these side-trips from Norfolk: Mariners' Museum Park (in Newport News), Sandbridge Beach (in Virginia Beach) and American Revolution Museum at Yorktown (in Yorktown). Next up on the itinerary: glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area and explore the world behind art at Chrysler Museum of Art.
