Norfolk


by PghPhxNfk

"Diamond in the South"

One of Virginia's greatest cities, Norfolk is home to the world's largest naval base, Naval Station Norfolk. Among its notable landmarks, Battleship Wisconsin, an Iowa-class ship was one of the largest constructed by the U.S. Navy and served for over 50 years, surviving World War II and the Korean War, following which it became a training ship for several years till being upgraded and seeing action in Operation Desert Storm. Having earned six battle stars, the ship today is open to visitors wishing to learn more about naval history. It's not all about the navy though, as the city also features its fair share of cultural and educational attractions like the Chrysler Museum of Art, Norfolk Botanical Garden and Virginia Zoo. The port town is also host to a dynamic art scene, upbeat nightlife, and a great waterfront district with plenty of entertainment.
