Stopped here for some culture on our trip to VA. This place provided some great photos (out front and the long covered walk in the back). There are some nice shops inside including an art gallery. This was well worth our time to visit.

As always, Kevin is an exceptional tour guide. This 90 minute guided tour winds through the cemetery and provides a glimpse into the past lives, families, tragedies, and wars that made the local area what it is today. We highly recommend it!

very nice introduction for strangers to these-here pahhts... obviously, they are boosting their sponsors, no harm in that, but don't be afraid to go off the path beaten by the Suffolk greeters

Pictures with Santa are always a staple here. I would not go to the farmer's market, no parking, bu the staff is great.

Staff on site have a vast amount of knowledge about Suffolk and vicinity. An overabundance of literature on local places of interest are available. Tours can be booked on site, as well as souvenirs are available for sale. This should definitely be your first stop upon coming to Suffolk!

The old courthouse is where you should stop before exploring Suffolk and vicinity. They have a wealth of well-organized information on attractions in the local area on display. There is a display of historical artifacts and photographs and examples of local wildlife. There is even a small gift shop. There are clean rest rooms and a staff ready to assist... More
