Virginia Beach, VA

Virginia Beach offers a truly classic American beach vacation. This is your chance to Live the Beach Life. From relaxing on our sparkling beaches, to taking a culinary tour of a fresh fusion of just-caught seafood and just harvested fruits and vegetables, to biking a 3 mile boardwalk or hiking along trails through old-growth forests and marshlands. Sunrises over the Atlantic Ocean and sunsets over the Chesapeake Bay lend exceptional beauty to your days here, as mild temperatures make for year-round enjoyment of outdoor adventures like fishing, kayaking and dolphin and whale-watching boat excursions. Virginia Beach is centrally located on the East Coast in the southeastern corner of Virginia, within easy flydrive access of two-thirds of the U.S. population and just 3.5 hours from Washington, D.C.
