The battleship Wisconsin in Norfolk, VA. Vacation time #roadtrip. Weather God has been kind to me. Was raining yesterday and nice and windy 79 degrees today. #blackandwhite #iphone6 #norfolk #virginia #waterlust. A bald eagle seemingly prepares for some Kung-fu action at the Norfolk zoo. Battleship in Norfolk VA Monticello Arcade of Norfolk, VA - beautiful architecture The USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77) makes its way to sea after a year long PIA at Norfolk Naval Shipyard. Sunrise This guy dressed up, you could, too, if you'd like. The beautiful staircase with the fantastic proton light that reacts to the skylight: free admission. So much fun, could be there for hours. Of all places, Mumford and Sons chose to perform in Virginia the same week I was on a #roadtrip up to the Northeast US. Naturally, I stopped to see one of my favorite bands play and even got to stand in the first row. After all, great music in random US towns is what makes for a fantastic road trip. #blue Sure don't make them like they used to.

#BestOf5 Even though the paintings are historical, gorgeous and dramatic, the frames are equally as impressive. Here, two artists are cleaning and touching up on the frames.
This museum is located just outside the crowded area of downtown Norfolk and was started by Walter Chrysler Jr, son to the car company founder. Even though there are memberships that individuals and families can purchase, the museum is free to visit, which makes it nice to visit whenever time allows or to see the different exhibits. The grand tour! Harborfest 2016 You can tour the ship for $16 each. Great thing to do while you're waiting for the stores to open on a Sunday before noon in Norfolk. Haha Norwegian tall ship. Downtown Norfolk. Harborfest 2016
sunset Busy street outside Naro Expanded Cinema. Beautiful Japanese garden in the middle of downtown near the Freemason hardor One of the best art museums in the U.S. I'm enjoying this lovely piece of art. At first I wondered why the space was left open, then I realized its to visualize your dreams: free admission. So much fun, could be there for hours. Waterside Waterside Earth, wind, water, and fire... there's so much beauty out here in this world and I'm glad we're here to find and share it all. Big ship tour near Hampton roads naval museum Lovely Valentine's Day meal on the spirit of Norfolk. Champagne, flowers, delicious food! There is an observation deck as well. They give a little tour of Norfolk while you're waiting for your meal and dancing after. Cute night out. Sunset on the downtown Norfolk waterfront during Harborfest. I wish I can add two locations for this picture but the beer is from The Birch and the pizza is from the Bakehouse at Chelsea which is right next door.
The cool thing about this brewery is that they let you order from the Bakehouse and have them deliver it to you at your table. The pizza was quite delicious, I highly recommend this place.
As for the Birch, they had an excellent selection of various beers that you can sample before purchasing, the waiters are helpful in helping you choose a beer that suits your preference (I actually might like beer now) however, the customer service was lacking a little at the bar area.
Overall, both places are must tries when in the area. USS Wisconsin Town Point Park #localgem
The Pagoda and Oriental Garden is a quiet walled-in park overlooking the harbor in Norfolk's Freemason neighborhood just a few blocks away from downtown Norfolk. Downtown Norfolk view #localgem
