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.
Attractions like Children's Museum of Virginia and Busch Gardens Williamsburg make great kid-friendly stops. Explore hidden gems such as Bluebird Gap Farm and Yorktown Victory Monument. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Norfolk: Newport News Park (in Newport News), Williamsburg (Water Country USA & Jamestown Settlement) and Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel (in Cape Charles). There's lots more to do: explore and take pictures at Battleship Wisconsin, take an in-depth tour of MacArthur Memorial, see the interesting displays at Nauticus, and pause for some photo ops at Armed Forces Memorial.
