Area Attractions and Directions


While located in it’s own quaint little spot, the Freemason Inn is surrounded by history, entertainment, and culture. The MacArthur Memorial, The USS Wisconsin, Nauticus, and the Chrysler Museum are among some of the historical sites. Enjoy shopping at MacArthur Center, a mall with exclusive stores such as Nordstrom and many fine restaurants. And if culture is your desire, The Virginia Symphony, The Virginia Opera and The Virginia Stage Company offering the finest music, theater and stage are only blocks away. Imagine that amidst all of this, you can take a walk on the cobblestone streets or follow the Cannon Ball Trail along the water to the Waterside Festival Marketplace where you may enjoy free concerts or seasonal sports such as AHL hockey or Tidewater Tides baseball at Harbor Park. Nightlife also abounds on Granby Street (Norfolk‘s own version of Rush Street) with fine restaurants and clubs.  The Half Moone Cruise Terminal is a gateway for cruise ships sailing across the Atlantic.
