A thriving southern city, Suffolk serves up generous helpings of art, culture, and the great outdoors.
Learn about the history of Suffolk and the Great Dismal Swamp at the Suffolk Visitor Center, near our hotels in Suffolk, or examine a two-room scale model of Suffolk circa 1907 at the Suffolk Station Railroad Museum. You can peruse local art at the Suffolk Art Gallery, and see the animals and exhibits at the Virginia Living Museum. And the impressive collection at the Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk is just a quick trip from our accommodations in Suffolk.
Riddick’s Folly House Museum is a Suffolk must-see––don’t miss the basement for local artwork and publications. Stock up on regional edibles at Bennett’s Creek Farm Market, and sample peanut products at the Planters Peanut Center. The Plaid Turnip is perfect for casual eats and local artwork; at the nearby Broken Egg Bistro, you can share the Kitchen Sink Challenge, a five-pound-breakfast-skillet!
The Great Dismal Swamp is a haven for bobcats, otters and all manner of wildlife––the perfect destination for nature lovers and hikers. And golfers can tee off at the Sleepy Hole, only a few minutes from your Suffolk hotel room.
