Norfolk is located at the core of the Hampton Roads metropolitan area. Named for the large natural harbor located at the mouth of Chesapeake Bay, the city has a long history as a strategic military and transportation point. The largest Navy base in the world, Naval Station Norfolk, is located there, along with one of NATO’s two Strategic Command headquarters. As the city is bordered by multiple bodies of water, Norfolk has many miles of riverfront and bay front property, including beaches on the Chesapeake Bay. Norfolk also has many attractions like the Chrysler Museum of Art, Virginia Zoological Park, and of course, the 20-minute ride to Virginia Beach! With tons of great restaurants, breweries, bars, parks, and shopping, Norfolk is the place to be!
