Day 1

Bar hopping has never been so easy! Catch F.R.E.D, Norfolk's complimentary electronic shuttle service or take a stroll down Granby Street, a five block restaurant row with over 30 locally owned and operated restaurants. Bar hop at some of Norfolk's local favorites such as Scotty Quixx for a Martini, Mo and O'Malley's Irish Pub for a Guinness, or Bodega for Sangria.

Day 2

Spend the day fishing off the Ocean View Fishing Pier overlooking the scenic Chesapeake Bay. Ocean View Fishing Pier stretches out 1,690 feet out into the bay and into one of East Coast's most bountiful fishing grounds. Want to set out on the water? Charter boats are also available for fishing.

If fishing is not your sport, spend the day jet skiing, reading a book on the beach or wading through the Chesapeake Bay.

Enjoy lunch on the roof top restaurant of the Ocean View Fishing Pier overlooking the Bay. Savor the delicious Willoughby clam chowder or the sure to please the taste buds Chesapeake Burger. Watch below as locals and visitors catch fresh fish from the pier.

Head back downtown and walk, run or bike the Elizabeth Trail, a five mile trail through downtown Norfolk and the waterfront. Or kayak through Lake Whitehurst at the Norfolk Botanical Garden. Experience nature from the water on a guided tour.

Dine on the beach at a local favorite, Greenies, an Ocean View landmark since the early 1900's and one of the most happening pubs on the beach. Greenies features live entertainment on the weekends.
