Fun things to do in NORFOLK

If you want a vibrant waterfront city that is filled with great things to do with kids AND 144 miles of shoreline, then Norfolk might be your answer!

With the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean as your backyard, your family day out will be teeming with adventure and fun.

Fancy some history? Why not visit that iconic USS Wisconsin, or keep that nautical theme up at Nauticus, a maritime-themed science center for kids!

The Norfolk Botanical Garden has three acres dedicated JUST for families, and Virginia Zoo lets kids have great animal interactions, AND ride on a train!

Don’t forget about those water activities too! The Spirit of Norfolk and Victory Rover are great options to see the sights from a whole new perspective!

Whether you pronounce is Naw-fok or Nor-fok - the family fun levels will be exactly the same!
