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. It is the second most populous city in Virginia. Georgian and Victorian architectural styles rule in the destination's historical neighborhoods, which showcase tall red-brick homes and ornate facades with large patios. Other cultural attractions are amassed in the destination's downtown area, which hugs the harbor's edge. In the harbor, massive military ships anchor alongside fishing vessels. The city’s connection to the water is celebrated in the annual harborside festival: Harborfest. Plan my day in United States using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.
