I hadn’t visited the coast of Virginia since college when I was a student at University of Virginia. That weekend is now a blur of the smells of our cheap hotel room, sitting on a curb to watch fez-topped Shriners parade in tiny cars and bloating out on pancakes. My recent weekend in Norfolk, Virginia, has left me with much nicer memories of a charming city with historic neighborhoods, bike-friendly Colley Avenue, Tide light rail, fantastic dining opportunities and plenty to experience. I was lucky enough to visit during the 25th Annual Town Point Virginia Wine Festival held every year in October. We did our best to sample many of the wines offered by 30 Virginia wineries on a gorgeous fall day. Here are five other things you’ll want to experience on your next visit.
