Live for the Destination
Live for Close Encounters
Live for Paddling Out
Live for the Rush
It usually hits the children first; it’s that moment right when they spot the ocean- their eyes light up and a slow, but widening smile creeps across their faces. Moments later, adults succumb to its calling, there is no fighting it; the ‘fun’ has taken over. Experts are unsure of the source, but we know it’s just something in the air- or maybe it’s the bounty of attractions and things to do that bring people back year after year. You decide for yourself, watch as it spreads from the friendly-faced locals out on the boardwalk down to the self-proclaimed sand castle king of Sandbridge.
The thing about fun- you just know it when you see it. It’s that Paddle-Boarder catching his first wave and it’s the first fish of the day caught off the 15th street pier. It’s watching Mom step out of her shell as the parasail takes her high above the horizon- she might even go out for drinks on the town later. It’s the hole in one in front of your boss on hole nine. Or it’s your favorite Christmas card cover- the one where the whole family finally got together for a group picture and the incoming wave came crashing down just at that perfect moment when the shutter flashed to catch it all in action.
One more thing about fun, it can leave a lasting impression. It’s probably why so many people come back year after year. So come join us, find your fun and understand what we mean when we say ‘Live the Life’.
Whether you’re into live music, concerts, festivals, traditions or just catching an evening ball game, there is always something going on at the beach.
Could Virginia Beach be any better? The ice cream, the boardwalk, the aquarium, the parks, the surf, the sun and -Oh Yeah!- the beach, or as we like to say "The Largest Sandbox in Virginia."
Virginia Beach is an attraction in itself. The numerous parks are perfect for the outdoor enthusiast looking to get ‘far away’ while being only minutes from everything else Virginia Beach has to offer.
Come see the many historical attractions Virginia Beach has to offer, some remnants dating back as far as the early 1600s…
Land lovers beware. Surrounded by water, it’s easy to catch the wave of the day, or catch that mellow Atlantic breeze in your sails.
Offshore, pier or surf fishing- whatever you prefer Virginia Beach has it. Motoring out of Rudee Inlet watching the shore fade behind you will be an experience you’ll talk about for years to come.
Some of the best things in life come free. Virginia Beach has activities that are both easy on the mind and easy on the wallet. Check out the many open beaches such as those in the north end, Chicks beach or Sandbridge area beaches.
Virginia Beach is filled with rare gems. On one corner you can find a designer’s boutique and the next will be filled with coastal charm, with so many shopping experiences you could spend an entire vacation shopping…we know…we've done it.
You can hear the music drifting along the coast for miles and miles. We suggest catching a show at the Farm Bureau Live Amphitheater, listening to the many free concerts on the beach, or for the more visual connoisseurs checking out the MOCA off 22nd street.
Splashing in the surf is a given. Building a sandcastle is a must. After you brush off the sand, dive into a few
ways to "Live the Life" kids style.Find Kids activities
