Virginia Beach is considered one of the most popular travel destinations in the East Coast. It nestles at the mouth of Chesapeake Bay alongside cities such as Norfolk, Chesapeake, Hampton, and Newport News, all which lend to the coastal experience and history of the region.
Start exploring the area’s heritage at Cape Henry. As the first landing site by the English into the ‘New ‘World’, groups can visit the original Cape Henry Lighthouse and immerse in recreational activities at the First Landing State Park. Others may like to stop by the Military Aviation Museum or the Search and Rescue Museum for a look into centuries of maritime-related artifacts.
Any animal lovers in your group are sure to enjoy visiting the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge or the Virginia Beach Aquarium and Marine Center to learn more about the local fauna. And if you are feeling superstitious, step into the Ferry Plantation House to learn more about colonial past—and the ghosts witnessed there.
If you are looking for some good old-fashioned fun your group can take a simple stroll along the famous Virginia Beach Boardwalk, where you can meet King Neptune’s statue at Neptune’s Park. Splash in at Ocean Breeze Water Park on a hot day, or join Captain Jack’s Pirate Ship Adventures for some dolphin watching. Whatever you do in Virginia Beach, there is something for everyone in your group.
