Best Instagram Photos of the Year

And just like that, the year is coming to an end. As we reflect on the past year, we wanted to showcase the photos you all loved the most of our beautiful city. We appreciate the love you showed us this year, and as always be sure to tag us in your photos with the hashtag #VisitNorfolkVA so we can continue to see Norfolk through your lens. 

These are numbered in no particular order. Photo above, Instagram @throughshayslens.
