Norfolk Highlights
  Hampton Roads Travel Tip

virginia_man210.jpg Highlights not to miss in Norfolk include the General MacArthur Memorial and the Chrysler Museum. The memorial is a visual record of General MacArthur life and the museum houses over $80 million dollars worth of art and spans five thousand years of art history.

Other legacies include the Heritage Foundation Museum and the Moses Myers House. The heritage museum, complete with secret passages and invisible doors, belongs to a wealthy family who collected an incredible array of world-class art. The Moses Myers House, built in 1792, is a simple house owned by America's first millionaire.

A three-masted schooner sails between Hampton to Norfolk. The ship skims across the water silently, its sails flapping gently in the breeze, past the ominous nuclear submarines, destroyers and frigates moored at the largest navel base harbor in the world, such as the U.S.S. Dwight D. Eisenhower, an aircraft carrier over 1000 feet long.

Picnics are popular among the azaleas, rhododendrons, tulips and fruit blossoms at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens. It is a refreshing leap back to the present; a leap back from the heavy bombardment of history, wars and heroes that in Hampton Roads -- besides being enlightening and stimulating -- is truly mind boggling.
