It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Norfolk

Peak Season: Late May to September

Though the weather can be hot, summer is packed with activities, from the multiple music stages of Harborfest (June; dates change annually) to the Fourth of July fireworks. Accommodation prices can be high. July and August are the wettest months.

Off Season: January to February

Temperatures reach into the 40s during deep winter, but breezes off the water can make it feel chillier.

Sweet Spot: March to May; October to December

Spring is the Norfolk Botanical Garden’s prime season, with its azaleas and other blossoms. Balmy temperatures most months make Norfolk a year-round destination.
