Norfolk is a beautiful waterfront city in Virginia, the second largest in the state. It’s home to Naval Station Norfolk, a massive naval base on the Chesapeake Bay, which may not be a big attraction for tourists, but the city’s 144 miles of shoreline, thriving arts community, and nearly 100 annual festivals are certainly drawcards. You can visit any time of the year, as Norfolk experiences distinct seasons, and the activities you’re likely to enjoy will vary depending on when you come. Winter can be cold and snowy, with average high temperatures around 50 – 60 degrees Fahrenheit. It can be a great time to find cheap flights and accommodation, as few tourists visit during the season. Spring, from March – May, is a busier tourist season, with comfortable temperatures ranging from 55-87 degrees Fahrenheit. From June – August, warm temperatures bring peak tourist season, so book your flights and rooms early to beat the crowds. During the fall, tourist visits taper off, but the weather remains fine, with temperatures of 60 – 80 degrees Fahrenheit, so it’s a great time to plan your trip.
