Anchoring around Norfolk, Hampton, Newport News

Hi folks,

I'm planning a sail down to the Norfolk area and am planning to stay there for a few days visiting the area.

Can anyone recommend places to anchor overnight in that general area so I don't have to stay at marinas every night?

Thanks

Hospital Point is a designated anchoring area..next to Tidewater Marina


There's also in a first-come-first-serve basis free dockage at the North Ferry Landing and High Street Ferry Landing near the Renaissance Hotel, Portsmouth,Va..but beware the Ferry has priority

Hospital Cove is a bit crowded on the weekends, but weekdays there is not more than a couple boats anchored in there.
