Norwich, Meet Norwich

By Linda Tancs

It’s been 350 years since the British left their homes in Norwich to settle in the colonies. In Connecticut, their namesake city will be celebrating its founding by our forefathers as part of a Norfolk-Norwich World Family Gathering. Now through 5 July, the Norfolks and Norwich’s of the world (some 58 communities of varying size) will experience New England charm, topped off with a clambake, July 4 celebration, parade, tall ships viewing at Mystic Seaport and a visit with the area’s original inhabitants, the Mohegan tribe. Be like family and come for a visit.

Illuminations in Virginia

By Linda Tancs

What do the cities of Richmond, Williamsburg, Newport News, Hampton, Portsmouth, Norfolk and Virginia Beach have in common? Besides their location along Route 64 in the Commonwealth of Virginia, these cities play host to the award-winning 100 Miles of Lights extravaganza. Now through early January, take advantage of the events in these host cities celebrating the season. Choose from several activities such as the drive-through lights display in Newport News, the Grand Illumination in colonial Williamsburg or the dinner cruises in Norfolk or Portsmouth highlighting the festooned waterfront. There’s no need to vote for favorites. Whatever the outcome, the “eyes” have it.
