East Beach: A Walk Through a Coastal Village on The Bay
Nestled between the Chesapeake Bay and the aptly named Pretty Lake, this quaint community is one of Norfolk’s most exciting neighborhoods and has received recognition as one of the most outstanding urban developments in North America. The tour highlights the area’s brightly colored cottages and coastal village residential designs in what is known as East Beach. Homes with cozy front porches and gracefully curving sidewalks were built around majestic old oaks that lead to the sand dunes. There are charming pocket parks sprinkled throughout the area, with benches beckoning.
