The tickets last until the end of the year. There is so much much to do in Norfolk. You can spend several hours at each passport location. The visitor's center was extremely helpful, as was the folks at Marriott. I highly recommend the Passport and many other attractions. Norfolk is only 20 minutes from Virginia Beach!
