Things To Do
Discover a range of great Suffolk attractions during your stay at our hotel. Hilton Garden Inn Suffolk Riverfront boasts an ideal location right behind Constant’s Wharf Park & Marina, home to a six-acre park which hosts concerts and festivals throughout the year as well as a 28-slip marina. Get in touch with nature at the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge, known for inhabiting northern and southern species, including black bears, river otters, bobcats, rattlesnakes, turtles, lizards and rare plants. Here you can enjoy biking, hiking, photography, fishing and much more. Lake Drummond - located near the middle of the swamp - is one of Virginia’s only naturally occurring lakes.
Enjoy an educational experience at Riddick’s Folly House Museum & Gift Shop, which was the headquarters of the Union Army during the Civil War. Now open to the public, the house, built in 1837, showcases unique Greek Revival architectural features. Take a visit to Planters Peanut Center, which roasts peanuts in the shell daily and offers a selection of peanuts, candies and other snacks to purchase in the store. Stroll round the 32-acre Cedar Hill Cemetery, home to The Confederate Monument and beautiful ancient cedar trees. All of these attractions in Suffolk and many more, are within easy reach from our Hilton Garden Inn hotel.
