A Day in Norfolk, Virginia

by Audrey Lee

Norfolk, Virginia, is known for its history, art and large community of military personnel. Travelers visiting the area can easily take in all that Norfolk has to offer in a day or two.

 

Start your day with coffee and breakfast at Vessel Craft Coffee, located inside of Selden Market and offering unique coffees like the rose water latte, cold brew oolong lavender fizz and bourbon barrel aged coffee. After you get your caffeine fix, stroll through the shops in Selden Market and visit Sugar & Grace luxury candle bar, Lorak Jewelry and Kor Vintage. Keep in mind the market is only open Thursday through Sunday, so check hours before arriving.

 

Take a quick, 20-minute drive to Norfolk Botanical Garden. Entry is $15 per adult and the garden is open daily, 9 a.m.–7 p.m. With more than 60 gardens to explore, travelers can easily spend the entire day smelling roses, visiting bee hives, getting kisses from the butterfly house and marveling at the century-old bonsai trees. For lunch, eat at Marigold & Honey Cafe, located inside of the garden. Dishes are garden-inspired and prepared with fresh ingredients. Sip on local beer, wine or lemonade. Gluten-free and vegan options are available.

 

After your hunger is satiated, continue exploring the garden or head to Nauticus, featuring the Battleship Wisconsin. Climb aboard the massive ship and learn about one of the largest battleships ever built by the U.S. Navy. The vessel has guided or self-guided tours to take at your leisure.

 

Finishing up the day, head to O’Connor Brewing Company for some pre-dinner beers. Best known for its El Guapo Agave IPA, O’Connor Brewing also has sours, wheat ales, stouts, lagers, pilsners and other IPAs that will quench anyone’s thirst after a long day of walking. Sit inside the large building where production of the beer takes place or outside by one of the fire pits. Weekends boast local live music and food trucks.

 

To end the night, grab some dinner at Canvas Social. Bright and colorful, this spot is sure to take your taste buds to the next level with Caribbean-inspired food. Try the plantain nachos with the Canvas Social special sauce, or the pan-roasted salmon with a lemon saffron Champagne and cream sauce and lemon confit.

Brasserie Mon Chou Chou Review

What happens when three of the six French nationals residing in San Antonio get together? If they happen to be from a long line of proud French gourmands from three different regions of the country, they take what they know and make it something proudly Texan, while still adhering to their separate and collective culinary roots. That’s exactly what happened as a result of those three — Executive Chef Laurent Réa of Strasbourg, Philippe Placé of Chartres, and Jérôme Sérot of Lyon — meeting 20 years ago.

Recharge and Renew at The Spa at Four Seasons Philadelphia

As a mom, you’re not allowed to pick favorites. With a growing baby in my belly and a toddler guiding my daily routines, my own favorites often take a back seat as I make the daily choice to swap healthy foods for junk food cravings and toddler tunes for windows-down, volume-up jams. But when I heard my favorite spa was relaunching its facial program, I felt zero guilt — of the mom variety or otherwise — about taking a morning off and booking myself a nice, long, rejuvenating facial at The Spa at Four Seasons Philadelphia at Comcast Center.
