Seaboard Coastline Trail- Suffolk

4841 S Hampton Roads Trail Suffolk

This new section of trail breezes through one of the endangered undeveloped tracts of land in Northern Suffolk. We will see farms, forests and new residences. A stop in Driver allows us to grab a cold drink and briefly peruse the quaint hamlet. Then complete the out and back on our 8-mile round trip back to Pughsville. The Suffolk Seaboard Coastline Trail is a developing project that will one day span 11.5 miles, connecting the communities of Suffolk and Chesapeake in southeastern Virginia. The trail is also part of a larger 41-mile effort called the South Hampton Roads Trail, which will link Suffolk, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Norfolk, and Virginia Beach.

NEON Contemporary Art Tour-Norfolk

Chrysler Museum of Art

$21.00

Enjoy a unique pedestrian experience of art, culture, and community. Hear brief, artist-approved, narratives relevant to 26 artworks and their creators. We begin outside the Chrysler Glass Studio on our 2-hour, 2-mile stroll through the streets and hidden conduits of the NEON District. Participants can also register at this link, where a meetup membership is not required. https://www.hampton-roads-hikers.com/new-neon Mike will be your guide: Having hosted over 600 tours and hikes in and around my hometown of Norfolk, I've spent seven years exploring and sharing. Each artist has a story and each piece a spirit. The artists with works featured on our tour were provided with the narrative related to their work. Some responded with valuable feedback and others a kind nod. So what we will convey about the art is synced with the creator's visions and is genuine.

Hike Sleepy Hole

Sleepy Hole Road

This little-known park offers a wide variety of terrain along our 2-mile, twice done loop.
