Things To Do In Norfolk, Virginia; Norfolk Botanical Garden

As we travel, we enjoy botanical gardens of all shapes and sizes but at home, we are lucky enough to have Norfolk Botanical Garden on our back doorstep where we can enjoy beautiful flowers all spring and summer and a spectacular holiday light display in the winter.  This family-friendly spot is a great place to host a wedding or just spend an afternoon. 

Visiting Historical Virginia; Berkley Plantation

Berkley Plantation is a family friendly and a history buff's bonanza!  It is not in the center of the Williamsburg tourist attractions, which is a plus for us and we thought it was worth the short drive to visit.  The plantation is peaceful and beautifully situated high above the James River.
