—SUNSETS WITH YOUR SWEETHEART—

Ocean View and East Beach

Picture this, you’re wrapped up in a blanket with your favorite person overlooking the bay, dolphins showing fin in the distance and the sun is kissing the horizon. Maybe you’ve picked up a sweet treat from Chocollage or have a bottle of champagne back at the room, either way, we invite you to sit back and enjoy a romantic sunset at Ocean View and East Beach.

Nauticus Pier

This hidden gem in Norfolk plays the perfect role for a quiet romantic spot. The Elizabeth River, locally painted benches, merman statue and mile marker zero (free and open to the public) make for the perfect backdrop for a sunset smooch.

Elizabeth River Trail

Discover Norfolk’s 10.5-mile-long Elizabeth River Trail. The ERT parallels the water, romantic cobblestone streets of historic Freemason, Ghent & Chelsea neighborhoods. Hold your darling’s hand, stroll the seascape of Norfolk and stop along the path to grab a bite to eat, something sweet or a coffee to go. Check out Norfolk’s sweet treats here.

 

Hermitage Museum and Garden

Love is in the air year-round at the Hermitage Gardens, a popular wedding venue and the perfect backdrop to any photo. This 20th-century Historic house museum sits on twelve acres of luscious gardens and natural woodlands. Step inside to experience contemporary exhibition galleries and a world-wide art collection.

 

—A NIGHT OUT ON THE TOWN—

Naro Cinema

The Naro, as locals refer to it, first opened its doors in 1936. Ditch the jeans, pack your best dress and strut Granby Street like it’s the 1940s! Our busy lives can get the best of us so we recommend leaving the Netflix at home, sharing a bag of over-buttered popcorn and enjoy a film at the Naro, we won’t judge you for kissing during the previews.

 

 

Wells Theatre

Built in 1912, Wells Theatre is home to Virginia Stage Company, Norfolk’s premiere theatrical performers. This theater has kept its 1912 interior décor, some even claim that it’s haunted. Either way, indulge your honey to a night at the theater. After the performance check out Norfolk’s modern American wine bar Cork & Co. just steps away for delicious bites and wine.

 

 

—DINE BY CANDLELIGHT—

Imagine outstanding service, unforgettable cuisine and a romantic atmosphere. Todd Jurich’s, Chartreuse Bistro and Four-Eleven York are amongst our local’s favorite dining options that will give you all the lovey feels.
