Downtown in Norfolk, Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
The Cannonball Trail
Follow the Cannonball Trail through 400 years of Norfolk and American history. The Trail winds along the shoreline of the Elizabeth River and through the districts of downtown Norfolk. Walk the cobbled streets of West Freemason - the earliest residential streetscape in Norfolk; stroll downtown where the turn-of-the-century buildings stand in the shadows of modern structures. Visit Windows on History and explore Hampton Road's founding role in American's heritage. Other historic attractions along the Cannonball Trail include General Douglas MacArthur Memorial, Hampton Roads Naval Museum, at Nautilus, the Moses Myers House, St. Paul's Episcopal Church and the Hunter House Victorian Museum.
