For those looking to enjoy fun in the sun with affordable prices, Virginia Beach is the perfect destination. Start your day with a walk around the beachfront and on the long concrete boardwalk. The refreshing sea breeze, along with performances by various street artists, will wake up all your senses and prepare you for a new day. If you are lucky, you might even get the chance to enjoy a local festival, as the beachfront is a popular venue for events. If you want to get away from the crowd and indulge in nature, First Landing State Park is an excellent choice. As the first landing spot for Jamestown colonists more than five centuries ago, First Landing State Park now features 20 miles of scenic trails on its land, along with a long beach. For those who are up for some marine biology lessons, the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center is a great choice.
Unsurprisingly, Virginia Beach offers some of the freshest seafood around. To try out the best regional staples such as crab cakes or fried shrimp, head over to Blue Seafood & Spirits or Tautog's Restaurant.
Wesleyan Commons Shopping Center acts as the city’s main bus station, and it serves the SprinterBus line. While there are no trains to Virginia Beach, Amtrak runs its Thruway bus service in and out of the Hampton Road Transit Bus Stop. The city’s main airport is the Norfolk International Airport, which is located 5 miles outside of the city.
