Seneca once said, "Travel and change of place impart new vigor to the mind." How right he was, you think, and what could be more invigorating than a stay at one of the hotels in Suffolk, Virginia? Here you'll find a community at the intersection of quaint historical charm, riverside beauty, and Southern hospitality. Whether you'd rather shop in the historical downtown or paddle a kayak through the tangled wilderness, there's a refreshing quality in the air in Suffolk that will send you home feeling energized.
Once you've checked in to one of the hotels near Suffolk, VA, rent a boat and float atop the serene waters of Lake Drummond in the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. Despite the name, there is an ethereal beauty that consumes you as you drift beneath the boughs of partially submerged trees and cast out a line for yellow perch or bullhead catfish. In this pocket of silent seclusion, the words of John Muir inevitably come to mind: "The clearest way into the universe is through a forest wilderness." The white-tailed deer, twittering songbirds, shy coyotes--and above all you--all seem to understand this as they move through the placid forest. Follow their example and just be for a while. Chances are good that you'll return to your choice of Suffolk hotels feeling more at peace with yourself and the world than you've felt in a while. When it's time for a new adventure, choose from Suffolk rental cars and make your way north to explore the riverside charm of the historic downtown.
If you feel like you could use a little more vigor before returning to the daily grind, boost your spirits with a few extra days staying in one of our Richmond hotels. There's nothing like the Southern hospitality and charm of the state capital, and Travelocity will find you great deals to help make your trip there run smoothly.
