Welcome to Virginia Beach, the classic American vacation destination that has delighted generations of visitors from all over the world! Strolling the magnificent boardwalk without a destination in mind, each step rewards with the incredible sights and sounds of the vibrant beach scene. From your oceanfront balcony, overlook the wide, manicured beach where you’ll enjoy sun-warmed recreation and cool evenings serenaded by street musicians.
Local surfers, passing dolphins, and a parade of charter boats greet the sun rising over the glassy surface of the Atlantic. Always alive with activity, the Virginia Beach oceanfront is enjoyed by people eager for some fun in the East Coast sun. A magnificent sculpture of King Neptune watches as kites, parasailers and kiteboarders fill the blue summer sky. Swimmers dive under the rolling Atlantic waves and skimboarders skate along the edge of the seafoam while jet skis and jet boat tours zip across the horizon. A little farther inland, mini-golf matches are underway, go-karts are taking another lap, and hikers and bikers are exploring First Landing State Park.
Virginia Beach restaurants, featuring renowned culinary artists, offer dishes that reflect the area’s many tastes. Platters of slow-cooked barbecue piled high, endless all-you-can-eat seafood buffets, and overloaded gourmet pizzas are served up for you and your family. While you’re in town, be sure to experience the fabulous waterfront dining along Atlantic Avenue and Rudee’s Inlet. For just a small sampling offered by some of the area’s favorite eateries, check out Sunny Day Guide’s Virginia Beach menu section.
