Things to do in Hampton Roads
Fueled by the Best Comfort Food in Town
Our spot on Harbour View Boulevard puts you in the center of Hampton Roads, Virginia – between bustling Norfolk to the east and charming downtown Suffolk to the southwest. Family-friendly and laid back, Suffolk is a great place to spend a day with the kids. Start at the delightful Kay’s Acres, where you’ll horseback ride through lush forests with an experienced guide.
Norfolk is home to the world’s largest naval base and some incredible local museums. The Norfolk Chronicles Walking History Tour is a great introduction to the city, and for something extra special, plan a trip to Nauticus, a maritime-themed museum and discovery center located right on the waterfront.
Whatever you do, don’t miss the chance to hike or bike along the gorgeous trails of the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. Don’t let the name fool you, the refuge is stunning, peaceful and populated with an impressive array of wildlife. Time it just right, and you can watch the sunset on Lake Drummond and maybe take a selfie with one of the many turtle specimens that call the area home.
Be sure to check out more local gems once you’re good and satiated:
- Virginia Zoo
- Naval Station Norfolk
- MacArthur Memorial
- Pagoda & Oriental Garden
- Hermitage Museum and Gardens
- MacArthur Center
- The Chrysler Museum Glass Studio
- Ocean View Fishing Pier
