The Beach Life communicates in a language that’s understood by all, giving international group travelers not only a taste of the beauty of this coastal environment, but the wealth of activities that sets Virginia Beach apart from all others. All you need to do is walk the boardwalk and breathe in the fresh Atlantic air to realize we’re all here for the same reason.
International travelers can enter the U.S. via gateway airports in New York City, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Charlotte and Atlanta. Virginia Beach is served by Norfolk International Airport, just 20 minutes away from the oceanfront, as well as Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport.
