Mermaids on Parade / Mermaid Trail

Citywide, Norfolk, VA 23510 (757) 664-6510

Which came first, Norfolk or its Mermaids? Norfolk ‘s iconic mermaids can be found throughout the city – each one reflecting nautical and Norfolk themes, civic pride, the diversity of the region, and anything else the artists and sponsors could dream up. You’ll find a mermaid covered in coins, sponsored by a bank, while a mermaid sporting a chef’s hat and apron sits in front of a bakery. To see the Mermaids in all of their glory, you can download the Mermaids Walking Map — Mermaids on Parade Tour of Downtown Norfolk — or a Blank Mermaid Map so you can do your own mermaid hunt!
