Being a native of Norfolk, the history, energy, and the whole pedestrian experience is what I love conveying to our guests in Norfolk.

From the purchase of Norfolk for 10,000 pounds of tobacco in 1680 and the U.S.S. Constellation staving off British attackers in 1812 to the 21st-century rebirth of our downtown district.
