Norfolk Nominated as Best City in CONDÉ NAST Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards

Voting Open Through June 30, 2020

Norfolk, Va. (April 20, 2020) – Norfolk has been featured as a nominee in the “Best City” category of the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards, an annual survey from one of the country’s leading consumer travel publications. The prestigious award is the longest running of its kind and celebrates the best in the travel industry. Norfolk was one of only four cities in Virginia to be included.

Winners are selected entirely by readers, who rate the city on its architecture, arts & culture, friendliness, public transportation, safety/cleanliness, sights & scenery and restaurants.

“It’s a great honor for Norfolk to be nominated as Best City by Condé Nast Traveler and especially timely to celebrate the amazing people that make up our tourism industry,” said VisitNorfolk President and CEO Kurt J. Krause. “The more recognition we can get for our city, especially in the current climate, the more it will help our entire community when travel resumes. We hope people will vote and recognize what an incredible destination we have here.”  

To vote, participants can visit, select the “Cities” category and then enter “Norfolk.” Each registered email address is eligible to vote once, and the deadline to do so is June 30, 2020. Winners will be announced on the Condé Nast Traveler website in mid-October and will appear in the November print issue.
