Welcome to Norfolk, VA

Norfolk is the cultural, financial and entertainment hub of the mid-Atlantic coast and will never disappoint!

Centrally located on the Eastern Seaboard, Norfolk is only hours from two-thirds of the U.S. population, making getting here and meeting here extremely convenient, not only for your travel needs but for your budget as well.

We’re a vibrant, urban destination with 144 miles of shoreline waiting to be explored. You can feel the Southern hospitality and creative grit when walking around Downtown, which is full of entertainment, shopping, attractions and cuisine. Generous accommodations abound with over 5,000 hotel rooms and more than 500,000 square feet of total meeting space. Many of the city’s celebrated cultural centers and arts facilities—including Nauticus and Battleship Wisconsin, the Virginia Zoo, Chrysler Museum of Art and Norfolk Botanical Garden—double as alternative event venues. All of this, and much more, await your arrival in the heart of the Virginia Waterfront.
