Norfolk is known as the financial and arts hub for the entire region. The area contains the Chrysler Museum, which is home to the largest glass collection in the world, the Harrison Opera House, and the Wells Theater. Norfolk is known for its ship repair and ports. One of the largest naval bases in the world, Naval Station Norfolk, can be found here. Virginia Port is the seventh largest port in the United States.

Norfolk’s higher education opportunities include Old Dominion University, Norfolk State University and Eastern Virginia Medical School. Sentara Health System and Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters Health System are two of the largest medical care employers in the area.

The area is known for excellent restaurants and seafood, the best being locally owned and operated. Norfolk’s restaurant scene includes just about every ethnic cuisine, as well as fresh, local seafood such as Chesapeake Bay crabs and bluefin tuna. Oysters are also a local and tourist favorite!

Norfolk is located between Chesapeake Bay and the Elizabeth and Lafayette Rivers. Boating and fishing take place almost year-round. There are several miles of sandy white beaches in Ocean View and river banks throughout the city. The city is home to the Norfolk Zoo and Norfolk Botanical Gardens.

Norfolk is close to Colonial Williamsburg and within driving distance of Washington, D.C., the Outer Banks and Charlottesville. Federal and Victorian homes can be found in the Norfolk Historic District, where there are homes built in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
