“Fireworks and Fun”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Was stuck in Norfolk for a day while Hurrican Arthur moved off the Outer Banks. We spent the entire day near Town Point Park, visiting the Nauticus center, taking a waterside tour of the naval shipyard (worth every penny, serious firepower!), eating at Joe's Crab Shack (and Jimmy John's up the street from Nauticus), and watching a day-late fireworks display on the waterfront. Such a cool area! And, there's a ferry to and from Portsmouth, where there is extra entertainment, food and activities for everyone.

“Interesting area on the waterfront.”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

Entertainment and events for all ages of the family. Felt safe and enjoyed some of the music provided. The time we were there it was not elbow to elbow, so we could pleasurably mosey around and enjoy the events and sights.

“Fireworks this year were horrible”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

We have been attending the 4th of July fireworks show for the last 5 years and this year (2014) was the worst ever. Very boring and even the grand finale was nothing spectacular. Not sure if they switched companies or not but last year it was much better. Would have rather went to the one down at the oceanfront.

“Beautiful view and nice walk”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

If you are in downtown Norfolk, you must take a walk by the waterfront and enjoy the area! It is peaceful and the view is great! You will see all sorts of boats and enjoy the mermaid statues. There a couple of nice restaurants if you are hungry. Family friendly.

“2014 bayou boogaloo”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

The location is great, the music was fabulous..BUT...$24 for what amounted to a little over 2lbs of boiled crawfish was a ripoff and what I consider price gouging...I am from La and I was deeply disappointed that Shaggy was "shagging us"
