For High Energy Families
For those with high-energy youngsters, book a stay at the Delta Hotels by Marriott Chesapeake-Norfolk. This sleek and modern hotel offers connecting rooms, perfect for parents who want to keep an eye on the kids while still having space for themselves. For another luxurious option, try one of the suites. Here, all couches fold out into sleeper-sofas, which are just the thing for tuckered out tots. Plus, living spaces in suites are sectioned off, creating a great solution for rowdy game nights. Delta has plenty of onsite dining options, including Luminous Restaurant, a Grab-n-Go Cafe, and even a 24-hour sundries shop to stock up on PopTarts and Cokes. From here, you’re only a five-minute drive to Indian River Park, where basketball courts, bike trails, and a playground await. It’s also only a seven-minute walk (or run!) to Defy Chesapeake Trampoline Park. Prefer to hang close to your room? Delta’s heated indoor pool is sure to keep all family members happy for an afternoon or two.
Parks And Playgrounds
Homewood Suites by Hilton Chesapeake/Greenbrier is an ideal place for families to spend time together away from home, and the indoor pool and a basketball court make it easy to gather without even leaving the property. Choose from king or queen rooms, all of which come with a full kitchen, dining, and seating area, and a 27-inch TV, so you can easily cuddle up for a movie with the whole family. Homewood Suites is up the road from Pop’s Diner Co., and just a ten-minute drive from the Fun Forest at Chesapeake City Park, the ultimate children’s playground. Built on three acres, this expansive playground is sure to entertain young ones for hours. Tell kids to keep their eyes out for the dolphin slide, shaky bridge, and even a dragon! And, with many handicapped accessible options, this truly is a park for everyone.
