    • Shenandoah NP without a car

      Shenandoah Oct 17, 2016 at 11:58 AM

      Hi ! Im travelling from Washington DC, Id like to camp and hike in Shenandoah NP. There are some buses, trains, amtrak etc going to the skyline area, but I can't decide which city precisely I should choose as a start for my discovery of the area.
      I know that I can easily find a camping there, but I admit that passing by one of the visitor centers would be great before I start hiking !
      I haven't planned to rent a car, so I wonder if you know any entrance easy to reach by foot or by bus.
      Which of the 4 entrances do you think is the closest to beautiful siteseeing and can be reached without driving ?
      Thanks a lot for your anwers !

      Staying in Williamsburg and going to Norfolk for the day.

      by ashamar18 Online Now Jun 29, 2008 at 8:56 PM

      If anybody reading this post and have tips to share with us pls do.
      First of Sept 08 we are staying at Powhatan Plantation in Williamsburg VA for one week. Never stayed at this resort. It is thru RCI. I hope it is nice. I hope I can look forward to it and not look back on it as something We shd not have done.
      We would like to spend a day at Norfolk. Maybe at the waterfront? Hoping to have boat to plate dinner? Good stadium seating movies nearby?
      We would like to go to Virgina Beach one day as well. Anybody know any good raw bars there?
      I would like some help from people who know first hand of these places. Not hopelessly rely on brochures. Although I'm not knocking brochures. Thanks in advance.

    • Where in Norfolk is this..?

      by DalberLagos Online Now Jun 2, 2006 at 12:15 PM

      Wondering if any of Norfolk residents could pinpoint the town mentioned in the travelsite

      I'm thinking its real and someone has suggested its a place called Diss which I think is actualy in Suffolk? Any help identifying would be great because me and my colleagues have become kind of hooked on the thing and want to visit to see how it measures up.

    • Boating in Norfolk

      by jaydee28854 Online Now Jun 1, 2006 at 11:11 AM

      Spending a week in North Norfolk along with family members rangeing in age from 4 years to 59 years, plus one 2 year old golden labrador called Harry. We are staying in a windmill (we hope Harry corners well!!).

      We would like to spend a day on a barge/boat/cruiser/ on the broads during this week and figure we should book ahead. Anyone out there had any good experiences they would like to pass on; would be much appreciated.

      Thank you.

      Looking forwards to hearing from someone.

    • Norfolk-Ghent OR Virginia Beach?

      by starttoday Online Now Sep 9, 2005 at 7:15 PM

      I have never been to the East Coast, and I currently live in Portland, Oregon. I'm interested in experiencing the "other" part of the country, but need some direction as to cost of living, etc. I've heard the Ghent neighborhood is "up and coming"-- clean, safe, youthful. But what about Virginia Beach? Being that I'm a hairstylist and prefer to work where people have some money to spend, which area best fits this description? And equally important, which is most reasonable on apartment rent?

    • Seeking info on Norfolk politics and climate...

      by starttoday Online Now Sep 1, 2005 at 2:36 PM

      I've been told Norfolk is a highly Republican town because of a military base there. Is this still true? I'm living on the west coast and am looking for a more conservative environment, but not in the midwest or deep south (which is flooded now anyway).

      Also, the east coast is known for its humidity. It seems impossible to find less humid places in that region. How does Norfolk rate? Am I going to melt into a puddle?

    • Beach temp in August??

      by ashleyking Online Now Jul 26, 2004 at 4:07 PM

      For the beginning of our east coast trip my boyfriend and I were planning on visiting Norfolk, VA and then taking the Chesapeak Bay Bridge to Dover,DE and then go over to D.C. What is the weather like in Norfolk beach area around mid Aug? Can you swim? Is the beach and bay bridge worth the extra drive and time or should we just go straight to D.C through Richmond? we are coming from memphis, TN.. Thanks for any advice!!!!

      I thought there used to be a lot of rated pages on Norfolk - they seem to have melted away. Is it just my memory that is faulty or ?? I see scarcely any tips there now.
