Perhaps best known as the world’s
largest naval base, Norfolk also offers miles of sandy Chesapeake Bay beaches,
a historic downtown district, a waterfront complex and a wide choice of boat
tours into the bay.
There’s also an excellent selection of museums including the
Chrysler Museum of Art where a collection of more than 30,000 objects are
housed spanning 4,000 years of art history. The Chrysler is considered as
one of the Top 20 museums in the USA and exhibits an outstanding collection of
glass including Tiffany and Steuben pieces.
During the summer months Norfolk
Tides AAA league baseball play at the waterfront Harbor Park and many festivals take
place in the city. Don’t forgot to visit Nauticus, the National Maritime Center
where the world’s largest battleship is docked, the USS Wisconsin.
