Where We Are
Norfolk is a part of the Hampton Roads region of Virginia, also known as Tidewater, and is located in the southeastern portion of the state, where unlimited resources for recreation, travel and culture exist.
The region’s temperate climate is ideal for sports and outdoor activities. Winters are mild. The spring and fall seasons are extremely pleasant. Summer temperatures are usually in the upper 80s.
Dive Right In
The Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay provide the boundaries for the Norfolk/Virginia Beach Community. The opportunities for swimming, diving, fishing and boating abound on the region’s many rivers and lakes, as well as along miles of public beaches. Some of the best sport fishing in the country can be found here and on North Carolina’s Outer Banks, which are within a two-hour’s drive.
For other outdoor entertainment, there is camping, biking and hiking at Virginia Beach’s Seashore State park; exploring the Great Dismal Swamp national wildlife preserve just south of Norfolk; and Busch Gardens near Williamsburg is one of the country’s most popular amusement parks.
