Planning to visit the Norfolk/Virginia Beach area early Dec. for a brief before Christmas holiday. My wife and I are seniors and have not spent any time in the Norfolk/Va.Beach area. We have been to Williamsburg several times and have seen the grand illumination.
Some things that sound interesting to me are
Virginia Beach Christmas Lights, Norfolk Botanical Gardens Christmas Lights, tour of Naval Base, boat tour of Norfolk harbor.
1. Where to stay that is safe and on a reasonable budget of less than $140 a night..
2. Are there other things in the Norfolk/Va Beach area that are must see sites or things to do?
3. I saw some hotels in the Cheseapeake and Lake Wright area that seemed reasonable are these communities near the things I want to see, or is traffic going to be an issue?
3. Is 3 days enough time to see the must see sights in the area?
