5 Fun Things To Do in Virginia Beach


Anyone who enjoys trips to the beach should consider Virginia Beach as a destination when planning their next trip. There are great activities for all ages in Virginia Beach as well as in the surrounding area. Here are the top 5 things that I would recommend taking a look at the next time you find yourself near the Atlantic coast of Virginia.

1. Sandbridge
This quiet community of beach houses offers some great stretches of coastline that are peaceful and relatively uncrowded. If you’re looking to get away from the crowds and noise of Virginia Beach itself, consider making the half hour trip down to this hidden gem.

2. Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge
Perfect for nature lovers and adventurers alike, this wildlife preserve provides habitat for hundreds of species of birds as well as the chance to spot a loggerhead sea turtle nesting on the beach. If you are a fan of getting away from it all, consider heading to this wildlife refuge for a few hours. Just don’t forget to bring bug spray!

3. The Boardwalk
Of course, making a trip to Virginia Beach would not be complete without a walk along the boardwalk. Don’t forget to enjoy this family-friendly experience, and be sure to hang around in the evening, because there is almost always something exciting going on for people who appreciate the nightlife.

4. First Landing State Park
If you’re looking to spend a day or an afternoon away from the waves, be sure to head up to First Landing State Park, located just at the north end of Virginia Beach. Here you can explore the old Fort Story, right on the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, as well as take a hike on one of the many trails here.

5. Virginia Aquarium
Last but not least, make sure you take the time to stop at the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center, which sits a short drive down from Virginia Beach itself. Perfect for all ages, the aquarium is a great place to learn about marine life, or to just wander through and appreciate the creatures who call it their home.


I hope this guide is useful for the next time you’re thinking about coming down the East Coast for a summer getaway, and having fun soaking up the rays!
