The oceanfront of Virginia Beach creates an escape from the daily grind. The city boasts three beaches with shallow, family-friendly waters at Chesapeake Bay Beach, a bustling boardwalk at Resort Beach, and a peaceful, sandy stretch at Sandbridge Beach. Along the 3-mile boardwalk, you'll find ample entertainment, outdoor dining, and the iconic 26-foot bronze statue of King Neptune. Experience a concert at the Sandler Center for Performing Arts or an educational nature tour to see where Jamestown colonists arrived in First Landing State Park. Virginia Beach is a delightful vacation spot with something for everyone.
Virginia Beach: What to know before you go
Peak tourist season in Virginia Beach is from late May to early September. Average highs in the 80s create the perfect weather for water activities and beachfront delights. Avoid the crowds and save money by visiting outside the tourist season. You don't always need a car to get around Virginia Beach, but the local VB Wave Trolley and Bayfront Shuttle only run during the summer from May through September. Virginia Beach also features ample bikeways and local bike rentals.
