So you definitely want to come check out Norfolk, let’s get you here. If you’re coming from the Virginia Beach Oceanfront, the easiest thing to do is hop on I-264 West and take it to exit 9, Waterside Drive (this is a left lane exit). That will put you out on Waterside Drive right along the waterfront and running parallel to Granby Street, right into Downtown! You could also take exit 10 (right lane exit) onto City Hall Avenue, which will drop you off in the heart of Downtown (and right in front of the MacArthur Center parking Garage!)
From here, you’ll want to park. Downtown Norfolk has a LOT of public parking, so you’re in luck. There is also metered street parking all around that are priced in 15-minute increments. You can check out all of our parking/travel resources on our website here or check out our interactive Snap Map where you can filter to Parking Garages.
