Best time to visit Norfolk:

Spring (March to May):

  • Spring is a delightful time to visit Virginia. The weather gradually warms up, with daytime temperatures ranging from the 50s to 70s Fahrenheit (10-26°C). This is an ideal season for exploring historic sites like Colonial Williamsburg and Monticello, hiking in Shenandoah National Park, and attending outdoor festivals. Spring also brings blooming cherry blossoms and dogwood trees.

Summer (June to August):

  • Summer is a popular time for visitors to Virginia. The weather is warm to hot, with daytime temperatures often in the 80s and 90s Fahrenheit (27-37°C). This is the best time for beach vacations along the coast, including Virginia Beach, and enjoying water sports on the Chesapeake Bay. Summer is also ideal for exploring the Blue Ridge Parkway and attending outdoor concerts and fairs.

Fall (September to November):

  • Fall is a favorite time for many visitors to Virginia. The weather remains pleasant, with daytime temperatures ranging from the 60s to 70s Fahrenheit (15-26°C). The fall foliage in the Shenandoah Valley and along the Blue Ridge Mountains turns into vibrant shades of red, orange, and yellow, making it ideal for scenic drives, hiking, and wine tasting in the state's vineyards. Fall is also great for visiting apple orchards and attending harvest festivals.

Winter (December to February):

  • Winter in Virginia varies by region. In the coastal areas, including Virginia Beach, the weather is milder, with daytime temperatures often in the 40s and 50s Fahrenheit (4-15°C). In the western part of the state, including the Blue Ridge Mountains, you can experience colder weather and opportunities for winter sports like skiing and snowboarding. The holiday season brings festive events and decorations, especially in historic towns like Williamsburg.

Note on Richmond:

  • Richmond, the state capital, is a year-round destination with a rich history and cultural attractions. Be sure to explore the city's museums, historic sites, and vibrant dining scene, regardless of the season.

Note on Shenandoah National Park:

  • Shenandoah National Park is a major attraction. The best times to visit for hiking and outdoor activities are in the cooler seasons of spring and fall when the weather is comfortable and the foliage is stunning.
