Silversea Luxury Cruises A NORFOLK (Virginia)

NORFOLK (Virginia)

Over a hundred mermaid statues are scattered across Norfolk, a true maritime city, with reams of naval history and a lively downtown area. Tucked between the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, there's a scenic waterfront where tall-masted, historic ships float, and colourful bunting flutters in the gentle sea breeze. Immerse yourself in the history of the South’s splendid colonial houses, or visit the fort to learn of Civil War history. View more

Sculptor, Kevin Gallup, created Norfolk’s 130 mermaids - and each is painted and decorated to be unique, by local artists. Enthusiastically adopted as a symbol of Norfolk, they offer an unusual welcome to this city of proud maritime heritage. Bike paths stretch out along the waterfront boardwalk of the Elizabeth River, which is the lifeblood of Norfolk. Heritage ships wait on its waters, and you can climb aboard one of the most impressive, the Battleship Wisconsin. See inside the engine room that powered this mighty vessel – one of the largest ever built in the US. MacArthur Memorial - located on MacArthur Square - celebrates the American general and veteran of many wars, whose tomb lies within. Blossoming with colour, Norfolk Botanical Garden is a haven of birds, butterflies, and flowers. Jump on the tram to ride around the garden. If the southern sun’s shining, you can’t miss out on a Norfolk ice cream – the town claims to be the birthplace of the ice cream cone. With cafes and an ever-growing collection of breweries producing trendy craft beers, taste traditional southern barbecue fare, or tuck into fresh seafood like mussels and lobster.
