With dancing sea oats, a soundtrack provided by nature and a distinctively local vibe, Sandbridge is a secluded hideaway that is a perfect place to get away with your family for a relaxing holiday. If you’re thinking about switching it up this year, here are some tips for a Sandbridge-style Thanksgiving for which you will all be thankful.

The House

From quaint beach bungalows to ocean-side retreats, luxury condos and everything in between, Sandbridge offers a variety of stunning beach house rentals for families of all sizes.

The Meal

Once you’re here, all you’ll have to worry about is the menu. Luckily, the coastal and agricultural bounty of the area will make for a distinctive meal that everyone will remember. While turkey is also a holiday must-have, no Virginia Beach feast is complete without fresh seafood pulled straight out of the waters which surround you. Our legendary Lynnhaven oysters and Margie & Ray’s blue crabs make for a perfect appetizer or turkey accompaniment, and can even be added into the stuffing for a coastal twist on the traditional favorite. 

The Pie

Make it a family culinary affair and pick the freshest fruits and vegetables from one of the many nearby Pungo farms – and maybe even bring home a pumpkin or two. After all, what is Thanksgiving without homemade pumpkin pie? 

The Beer

Keep the local vibe going with some seasonal brews from one of our many local breweries. Green Flash is just a short drive away and offers a huge selection of beer that everyone not sitting at the kids’ table will enjoy. With such a large selection, you may want to sample a few options while you’re there before you bring them back to the house. You know, just to be sure...
