Norfolk is home to intriguing historical attractions, museums, delicious restaurants and unique shopping. From downtown, you will find it easy to reach all that Norfolk has to offer; most places are within a short walking distance, car or train ride. For an outdoor adventure, you can sail, kayak, play a round of golf or hike only minutes from the downtown area. Cruise the harbor on the tall ship American Rover or tour the city by foot, on bike, or light rail. And family activities are plenty. Along with a wide variety of water sports, you will find interactive fun both indoors & out at places like the Virginia Zoo, Norfolk Botanical Garden and Nautilus. For sports, take in a game at Norfolk Scope Arena with the Norfolk Admirals, the farm team for the American Hockey League. For baseball fans, the Norfolk Tides are a Triple-A minor league baseball team that plays at Harbor Park. Since 2007 they have been a farm team of the Baltimore Orioles; prior to that, they had a 38-year affiliation with the New York Mets. And at Norfolk State University, you’ll find every collegiate sport you desire to cheer for in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, and division one athletics at Old Dominion University. For your own sport and exercise desires, check out one of the many parks like Ocean View Beach Park, Northside Park, Ocean View Golf Course, or Town Point Park and Amphitheatre.
To the south of Norfolk, in beautiful Virginia Beach, you find the area referred to as the Hampton Roads and Coastal Virginia.

Try touring historic places, browsing the latest art exhibits, interacting with sea creatures at the aquarium, surfing, kayaking, boating, or taking in a concert or a theatrical performance. Forbes named the city one of the best in the nation for outdoor activity and National Geographic lists the boardwalk as one of the top 10 in the country.
