Norfolk, located at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay is a popular destination for visitors who enjoy exploring the unique and charming neighborhoods of this second-most populous city in Virginia. In 1971 the Freemason community in downtown Norfolk was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was recently named one of the “Ten Great Neighborhoods” in the country by the American Planning Association. Highlights of this walking tour include several homes built in the 19th century that have been meticulously restored for 21st century living, newer construction that blends well amongst period dwellings, and the Hunter House, now a Victorian museum. This house and garden tour includes a demonstration of Victorian style floral arrangements.
