While you’re exploring the Downtown Norfolk Waterfront, consider taking the ferry as part of your weekend adventure. The ferry service is also operated by Hampton Roads Transit and offers a great view of the harbor. The ferry only has one route, which travels between Downtown Norfolk at The Waterside, and North Landing and High Street in Portsmouth. For more information, visit Paddlewheel Ferry .
What will the weather be like? Because of its temperate mid-Atlantic climate, Norfolk is a year-round destination. October in Norfolk has ideal warmth, with an average high of 70 degrees Fahrenheit and low of 54 degrees. Pack clothes that layer well, such as a fleece vest if you want to explore the waterfront in the mornings.

I am on a mission to get you traveling more often. This blog is a reflection of my mission. I travel (on average) 30 weeks per year hosting and producing a television series for PBS. In addition, I host a weekly radio show and produce original travel videos for online distribution. I am very fortunate for these opportunities and it is my hope you will join me on my travels!
