An easy walk that takes you through historic sights of Norfolk, this trail is a great way to see the city and sights, and covers all the highlights. We took our time and covered it all in about 3 hours.

The guy who ran this tour has discontinued it, as he has started medical school. I spoke to him by phone on 11/8/13, when I was trying to make reservations for the tour. He no longer lives in Norfolk, by the way.

I really enjoyed my walk along the cannonball trail. You see all of the historic highlights of Norfolk including an old church with a cannonball still lodged in the wall from the Revolutionary War. To see houses from the 18th century still in pristine condition is really something

Very great walk through history. Our family learned a lot. Nice to see it up close. We took our time and split it up in to two days. Lots to see.
