A gripping memorial resides in Norfolk's favorite place to soak up the sun and take in some tunes. – Overview
Tucked between Nauticus and the Waterside Festival Marketplace, this 7-acre waterfront park is where city residents gather when the weather's nice. The park provides the perfect spot to take in the beautiful view of the Elizabeth River or enjoy a relaxing afternoon soaking up the sunshine. Each year the park is host to more than 65 concerts and festivals, including the Town Point Jazz and Blues Festival, craft shows and children's events.
The park features the Armed Forces Memorial, a particularly interesting way to remember victims from the Revolutionary to the Gulf wars: Letters written by U.S. service people are cast in thin sheets of bronze and scattered as though blowing away. The letters are particularly poignant because each of the authors died during battle.
Great Summer Party Spot – Tucked between the office towers of downtown and the shadow of the Battleship Wisconsin is a great place for evening fun. Something happening every weekend, free live music on Friday night and beer/wine coolers are available. Harborfest may be the biggest party in the area, but for my money try the Cinco de Mayo or Bayou Boogaloo bashes. Great music, great food, great people.
