Relax – Pamper – Explore…

Wake up one fine morning to walk along the shores of an endless ocean, only to find yourself stranded. You have nowhere else to go for the next few days. What would you do? Well, enjoy your time, of course. Let’s make the most of the time and engage in some fun activities by the beautiful stretch of the virgin beach, full of eateries and people, yet so fulfilling and soothing. Here’s what you can do on your vacation at Virginia Beach, the popular and most populous city of Virginia.
1. Connect With Sea Creatures

When we say sea creatures, we mean sea animals: fish, dolphins, and more. Go swimming at designated areas, try paddle-boarding or kayaking, take your kiddies to the aquarium, attend a dolphin-watching tour, or try deep-sea fishing. Whether you take up a chartered boat or the famous pirate ride with Captain Jack, you are bound to get hooked for an entire day. Additionally, you can go to the adventure parks or admire the untouched beauty of the False Cape State Park.
2. Dine by the Water-View
Dine by the dockside to make the most of your time with your loved ones over a meal. Sip cocktails and enjoy the view overlooking the expanse of the ocean. What exactly are you looking for: bistro, seafood, doughnut and dessert, or some fine-dining outlets? You’ve got them all here.
3. March to the Museums

Are you the kind who likes to spend time pondering over the history of a city, delving into minute details, or do you simply love museum-sighting? If yes, head to Lynnhaven House, a marvelous piece of architecture, Francis Land House, Virginia Beach Surf & Rescue Museum, or the Military Aviation Museum. Fans of Walt Disney artwork must proceed to Tomstone Animation Art Gallery & Studios. Don’t forget to have breakfast or lunch at their café. If you have time, take up a guided tour at the Christian Broadcasting Network.
4. Relax and Pamper
Virginia Beach is home to the best hotels and resorts in the city. If you simply want to enjoy a laid back vibe, relax by the Sandbridge Beach or walk the trails of Lake Lawson. Pave your way through the Virginia Legends Walk to honour significant contributors, or get a glimpse of the rural side through the Farmers Market selling fresh produce (check dates in advance).
5. Go on a Walkathon

Don’t worry; we don’t want to set up a fitness regimen for you. Walk along the wondrous 3-mile stretch of the Virginia Beach Boardwalk, rent a bike, get your roller blades, and stop by musicals, shops, and restaurants of the ever-lively centre.
Tip: If you are a music lover, check the dates of music festivals, oceanfront fests, and amphitheatre shows in advance.
There is a lot happening at Virginia Beach. A single post is not enough to cover it. This post has been compiled by input received from my friends who live around Virginia and refuse to disclose their names, but I thank them anyway.
