You'll find plenty to do while in Virginia Beach!
With 14 miles of open, public beaches – with NO fees – Virginia Beach offers a variety of unique beaches to fit every mood. The newly-landscaped Virginia Beach resort area features live music, street performers, diverse festivals, as well as outdoor cafes and nightlife.
If your idea of a "day at the beach" is more relaxed, visit Chesapeake Beach (known to the locals as “Chick's Beach) for a more tranquil spot along the scenic Chesapeake Bay. Swimmers will enjoy the bay's protected shallow waters and beautiful sunsets.
For a more secluded environment, the Sandbridge area on Virginia Beach's southern shore is perfect—quiet, breathtaking ocean views, and just 20 minutes from the main resort area.
The ocean and many inland waterways around Virginia Beach provide for numerous water activities, ranging from peaceful to thrilling!
Historic homes throughout the city offer a peek into the lives of Virginia Beach's earliest residents, including the Adam Thoroughgood House (circa 1680), the Lynnhaven House (1725), the Ferry Plantation House (1740), and the Francis Land House (late 1700s). All homes are open to the public for tours and host special interpretative programs throughout the year. www.virginiabeachhistory.org.
