Though a chartered yacht is a comfortable way to tour the seas, it can only navigate city streets with the help of hundreds of unhappy pack goats. Tour Norfolk in terra firma style and comfort with today's Groupon: for $6, you get a walking tour of the historic areas around the Elizabeth River (a $12 value for adults) with Norfolk Walkabouts.
Norfolk Walkabouts guides colonial inquirers on a walking tour of historical Norfolk, promising to illuminate parts of the city that are off the wounded path for locals and out-of-towners alike. Tours begin at the mermaid fountain in front of the Half Moone Cruise and Celebration Center, and include an approximately 1.5-mile, 90-minute stroll within the Town Point and Freemason areas, focusing on Norfolk's role in the birth of colonial America and modern-day super-America. Norfolk Walkabout's tour guides are well versed in the area's days of yore, and they'll encourage inquisitive types to ask questions about each site. Mobile historians will see sights like the Freemason Abbey building, the World War II–era battleship USS Wisconsin, and Nauticus, the maritime-themed center and museum.
By the tour's end, curious hoofers will have delved deep into Norfolk's rich past, learned about contemporary touches in Norfolk's present, and discovered plans for the crystal hover-palace in Norfolk's future. Don a pair of comfortable walking shoes, pack a bottle of water, and explore the hotspots of Norfolk with today's Groupon. Call to schedule your tour.
