Known for its sand, surf, and lively boardwalk, Virginia Beach has long drawn tourists and locals alike to enjoy its scenic locale along the Atlantic Ocean. Here, historic cottages now host cozy seafood shacks, upscale cafes, and shops. The boardwalk bustles nearly year-round but puts its best foot forward in the summer, when free concert series and street performers add to the ambiance. Elsewhere, hike on coastal trails at First Landing State Park and get up close with aquatic wildlife at Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center.
The first planned state park in Virginia and the spot where English colonists first landed in the early 1600s, this green space offers 20 miles of trails and 1.5 miles of sandy Chesapeake Bay frontage.
Explore one of the country’s most magnificent aquariums right here in Virginia Beach, with animals representing marine habitats around the world including the zebra shark, green turtles, Komodo dragons, and more.
The town of Virginia Beach is synonymous with its boardwalk, which stretches for three miles and even has a separate bike path. Stick around after sunset in the summer for nightly entertainment and live music.
