Crazy Dash- Norfolk, VA

Posted on: March 11, 2016

With my children home for Spring Break, 

I jumped at a Groupon for Crazy Dash, 

a fun scavenger hunt where they give you directions for a walking tour 

and ask you to answer questions regarding the sites. 

They also encourage silly acts and photos with your group. 


We took picture of things we wanted to , but not neccesarily the 8 different sites 

we were directed to by Crazy Dash. 

This is actually a very neat site geared towards honoring our strong military precsence in Norfolk.

On the ground scatttered about are metal “Letters”  from soldiers all throughout history . 

I really liked reading them all and had no idea this tribute existed. 


I love all the Mermaids around Norfolk, so stopped along our route at each one. 

We were taken to several historic sites in the city, from the spot marking the Northen spot of the original city

of Norfolk, to MacArthur Memorial and Art Instiallations and even a huge Fountain.  


It really was a fun afternoon and you know it’s a hit when 2o minutes into it,

your youngest teen at almost 16 thanks you for getting him out and about with his siblings. 

The route took us near the mall, so we stopped in and enjoyed lunch before heading on our way. 


The guys my son’s Connor almost 16 and Nicholas 20. 

We had them pose in front of the USS Wisconsin that now is retired and 

has a permanent spot in Norfolk and was one of the stops directed by Crazy Dash. 

We got a kick out of the the number 64 on the side as yesterday was my brother’s 

birthday and that is the year he was born… 


Yet another Mermaid.

Crazy Dash sent us in search of fun things like the name on the bag of the

Lone Sailor who sits watching over the USS Wisconsin.

His name was engraved on the seabag that stood beside him.


My apologies for not taking more pictures of all the stops Crazy Dash 

directed us to , but for my local friends, that just leaves the element 

of surprise should you decide to give this a try. 


Look what the walk along the water did to my hair!  

My sons got a good laugh about my “big hair” . 

I am wearing my new spring purchase of moto leggings I bought from 

Crazy Dash has locations in several areas including my hometown of Virginia Beach and my son’s college town of Richmond, VA.  I would absolutely do this again in another city, but I think the price per person was a bit of a rip off. 

With my Groupon I paid for all four of us which came to $36, but since it’s just an app on your phone they have no way of knowing how big your party is. In the future I think I’d feel like paying for just two at $18 as more reasonable.  I highly recommend this for homeschooling families!  

In conclusion everyone had a great time and it took us about 3 hours including our stop for lunch. 

Wishing all my Dear Readers, a Fabulous Weekend! 

I have just another two days with my kids who head back Saturday afternoon!
