Suffolk is a city located to the west of Norfolk and Chesapeake, though it makes up part of the same urban sprawl as both of them. Suffolk is the largest city in Virginia by land area (and even one of the largest in the US, 14th to be exact), though it consequently has one of the lowest population densities.
One of the most recognizable things about Suffolk is the Great Dismal Swamp, which is a regional attraction, drawing in people from Suffolk’s sister cities just as surely as its own residents. In the city itself, some of the main attractions include the Suffolk Art Gallery and the Suffolk Seaboard Station Railroad Museum.
Suffolk is similar to its sibling cities in the greater metro area in that it is home to many smaller businesses out to make a name for themselves. If you want people to know more about your Suffolk business, our performance lead generation program can get you in touch with the best possible leads.
