Life’s A Beach…
First and foremost the best reason to visit Virginia Beach this summer is just that! The Beach! The Chesapeake Bay, Resort Area and Sandbridge make up 35 miles of Virginia Beach’s Coastline.
There is any sort of water activity and beach fun that you can imagine! Just the same, don’t feel bad if your goal is to lounge and do nothing while on vacation…the beaches were made for doing just that!
The history buff in me loves to visit historical places along the east coast and Virginia Beach has its own history to share as well. There are lots of different historical sites and tours that you can take to learn more about this historical part of our country’s heritage. Definately check out the King Neptune Statue
Proudly welcoming local residents and visitors alike, a 34-foot, cast bronze Neptune statue stands at the gateway to Neptune Park and the threshold of the sea.
Of course one of the most poular off the beach things to do is Busch Gardens, plan to carve an entire day out of your vacation to go enjoy great coasters, food and entertainment.
You will want to have some new clothes to go with that great tan that you get on the beach and VB has loads of great shopping options at their mall, along the boardwalk and throughout the quaint beach towns that line the coast.
It’s all about the Kiddos..
Sure shopping is wonderful, so are historical tours, but that was life before kids right? So for those of us with a hard to please crowd – Virginia Beach a fabulous choice for families!
They have ever sort of water activities imaginable available! Virginia Beach is a key destination choice for tweens and teens looking for ways to kill the boredom factor!
In addition to the beach activities, there are state parks to enjoy biking and camping, the Virgina Aquarium to help fill in on those rainy days and the Boardwalk!
Here is the lowdown on great places to take the kids!

As a novice foodie, when I go to a beach town – one of the things I look most forward to is getting to enjoy fresh seafood. Here is Northeast Ohio we do have the great lakes, but we are literally limited in how much we should each from our lake and of course the types of things found in lakes aren’t nearly as tasty to me as sea fare…
