Being On The Water

Norfolk, VA is a friendly, modern port city nestled where the Chesapeake Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean. It is home to the world’s largest naval station, one of the East Coast’s largest ports, and with rivers, creeks and beaches all around, it should come as no surprise that water is a large part of life in Norfolk.
