Getting Around

It's so easy getting around in Norfolk!

If your stay brings you downtown, we encourage you to leave your car in one of the many convenient city parking facilities upon arrival. You shouldn’t need it again until it’s time to leave, for the city offers so many fun ways to enjoy its many sites and amenities. Within 12 walkable downtown city blocks, you’ll find world-class museums, historic attractions, shopping and a wide array of dining options. 

When your feet tire, or when you want to venture a bit further, simply hop on the Tide, Norfolk’s light rail system. The Tide’s 7.5-mile route in and out of the downtown area includes 11 stops allowing convenient access to many of the city’s offerings. Norfolk is proud to claim that visitors can travel around much of the city without leaving a carbon footprint.

Those who prefer to travel outside of the downtown area by private car or via taxi will be happy to find that in most cases it’s only a 15-minute drive to most of the region's other exciting locales and attractions.
