One of our favorite fall activities in Virginia Beach is to head down to Pungo and spend some time exploring the rural farming community. As if the expansive agricultural landscape just a few miles from the beach isn’t surprising enough, just wait until you get there. Here are a few of our favorite ways to spend a day in Pungo that are far from just an average day on the farm.

Take a ride on a vintage 1941 Boeing Stearman open-cockpit biplane at the Virginia Military Aviation Museum, or step even further back in time to the Jurassic Era with a stroll through their Jerrassic Park!

A surfboard shop in the middle of the country? Pungo Board House offers everything you need to surf & skate the day away with custom board services, lessons, and even a skate ramp on the property.

Join a top local chef at New Earth Farm for a farm-to-table cooking class unlike any you’ve ever experienced.

Take a dinner kayaking cruise to Blue Pete’s for some delicious fresh seafood.

Go picking in Pungo for the season’s bounty at one of the area’s many pick-your-own farms.

Enjoy a hearty southern breakfast made from fresh ingredients that are locally produced at the Bee & the Biscuit.

Stop by the Tar Roof Art Gallery, which offers a place to relax and appreciate the local craft with works from local artists, photographers, and craftsmen.
