SOME COME FOR THE History, OTHERS, JUST FOR THE Fun OF IT ALL

One visit to Portsmouth, Virginia and you’ll be hooked. Amble along our famous Seawall. Stroll through three centuries of historic neighborhoods. Go antiquing. Enjoy unique shops. Take in some art. Stand inside a giant soap bubble at the largest children’s museum in the state. And did we mention that Portsmouth is home to some of the most delightful restaurants in the region? Many of Portsmouth’s attractions are clustered within easy walking distance of each other, making it the perfect place to spend a day. And with its central location, it’s easy to get to – just a quick ferry ride from downtown Norfolk, and just minutes from Virginia Beach and Colonial Williamsburg.
Here in Olde Towne, you’ll find a little something for everyone. Come see what we have in store.

There’s no question good eating (and drinking) is part of the adventure of Portsmouth.

From museums, festivals, historic points of interest, breathtaking architecture, and more, Portsmouth has a lot to take in.
