Virginia Zoo Hotel & Travel Guide

A visit to Virginia Zoo is more than just fun. It's also an educational experience for children and adults alike.

To find it, you'll have to travel approximately 80 miles (129 kilometers) from the state capital, Richmond, until you get to Norfolk - Virginia Beach.

For stress-free access to Virginia Zoo, take a room at one of the 5 accommodations that are a short commute away. Many travelers appreciate the Residence Inn Norfolk Downtown, SpringHill Suites Marriott Norfolk Old Dominion University and Wyndham Garden Norfolk Downtown, 2 miles (3 kilometers), 2 miles (3 kilometers) and 2 miles (3 kilometers) away, respectively.

If you are fine without fancy facilities, you can get a room at one of a handful of low-cost solutions that are not too far away. Make inquiries at the Quality Inn Norfolk Naval Base and the Econo Lodge Inn & Suites.

The Sandy Bay Apartments is the one option in the area for visitors on the lookout for something a bit more luxurious. You will find it just 6 miles (10 kilometers) away.

Conscious Planet (2817 Granby Street, Norfolk) is a popular coffee bar that is only 0.5 miles (0.8 kilometers) away. It's the ideal place to go if you're need of a small but tasty meal. As the shadows grow longer you'll no doubt start wondering about dinner. If you don't feel like straying out of walking distance, Carlos Soul Food (2912 Church Street, Norfolk) is a great option.
