Cold weather activities

Cold weather activities

My boyfriend and I are going down this week for a trip to look into the area for work. We both work in restaurants and want to know great places to check out for food, or bars we can work at. The weather is supposed to be terrible those days and I'm desperate to find something fun for us to do while we're there to feel more like vacation but everything seems to be built around hiking or the beach. Any suggestions?

If you might interested in restaurants in the Norfolk area, there are a couple of places that have a concentration of varied restaurants; locally owned, chains, mid to upscale. Check Google map in downtown Norfolk. Waterside Dr to Brambleton Ave and Boush St to St Pauls Blvd. This square can easily be walked while checking out many restaurants. Another Norfolk area is Ghent. Look at Hampton Blvd to Monticello Ave and 21st St to Maury Ave, most located on Colley Ave. Norfolk and Virginia Beach have several craft breweries that are very popular, may want to visit for fun as well as potential job. Here is some brewery information:


For other things to do, check out Virginia Beach Rock Gym, Virginia Aquarium often runs whale watching tours, check their schedule, also has Adventure Park on site offering obstacles and ziplining..

Enjoy the area and stay warm.
