About Suffolk

Suffolk is Virginia’s largest city at 400 square miles! It’s known for its vast history of bringing to life Mr. Peanut, more widely known as the Planters Peanuts brand. Once called “Surprising Suffolk,” the city is also home to beautiful hikes and conservation/preservation areas such as the Great Dismal Swamp, Hoffler Creek, and Bennett’s Creek. Like many localities in the 757, it features a fascinating historic district, and the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts is a popular attraction.
