The Perfect Mix
What do over 100,000 acres of wetlands, 23 different National Historic Places and a dancing peanut have in common? Book a room or suite at one of the excellent hotels in Suffolk, Virginia, and you can find out. What began as a port town for the Nansemond River way back in 1742 is now a bustling city that has stayed true to its history while keeping an eye on the future. Though Suffolk is close enough to Norfolk, Chesapeake and even Virginia Beach to allow you access to almost everything on the coast, you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to explore the local area as well.
For example, did you know that it is the home of Mister Peanut and the original Planters’ Peanut plant? Since 1912, the area has continued to produce delicious nuts for party mixes around the world. But that isn’t the only history you can explore. With 23 locations on the National Register of Historic Places, like the Riddick House or Cedar Hill Cemetery, there’s plenty of the past to go around. Nature is fully represented as well at both the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge and Nansemond National Wildlife Refuge.
And The Best Hotels
When an area has as much to do and see as this one does, it’s going to need a good set of high quality, well-known hotels to support the incoming visitors. Find the right stay for you at one of the premium hotels in Suffolk, Virginia. At the Holiday Inn Express, breakfast is always hot and on the house and your workload is in good hands with a 24-hour business center. Dine right on the river at the Constant’s Wharf Grill at the Hilton Garden Inn. Save your money and still get more at the Comfort Suites. Or enjoy the experience of Marriott at the Courtyard. This is a choice you can’t get wrong.
