Outdoor Activities in Virginia Beach
 

Coastal waters, beautiful parks and great fishing make Virginia Beach the ideal vacation for any outdoor lover. Home to one of the last great salt marsh habitats on the East Coast with hundreds of miles of inland waters, thousands of acres of parks and countless trails, and the largest estuary in the US in the Chesapeake Bay, this is much more than a seashore vacation. Whether you’re on one of our beaches or deep within the canopied forest of our state parks, there’s an open invitation to paddle, bike, hike, surf and swim your way to your best vacation yet.
