Downtown is home to the Chrysler Museum of Art, the USS Wisconsin World War II battleship and the Maritime Center. The quaint, centralized Downtown also makes it a pleasure to walk to local retailers, art galleries and eateries.
In addition, groups can take advantage of local events and activities like:
- TGIF at TowneBank Fountain Park (Free): Every Friday from 5-9 PM. during the summer months, visitors can head to the TowneBank Fountain Park following their meetings to experience Norfolk's largest outdoor waterfront party.
- 6th Annual AT & T Acoustic Music Festival (Free): On September 17th from noon to 10 PM, this grassroots music event is a great way to spend a late summer afternoon and evening.

Gourmet beverages, wine and food will be available throughout the day.
- 29TH Annual Norfolk Jazz Festival (From $28 / person): From July 22 - 23, Norfolk's growing music scene will heat up at Town Point Park from 5-11 PM both evenings during the region's longest running outdoor Jazz Festival.
