After a full schedule of meetings or training in our resort city, re-engage your team on an immersive outing with coastal flair. The beach is always a top attraction during session breaks, but an on-water experience delivers a unique vantage point for delegates. Climb aboard a kayak or take a guided stand-up paddleboard tour and glide peacefully into nature, perhaps even meet up with a pod of dolphins! Seasonal group tours enjoy exploring the waterways of Virginia Beach’s First Landing State Park, and all necessary equipment is included.
If your group prefers to stay on shore, rent a fleet of bicycles and pedal along the city’s three-mile Oceanfront Boardwalk on a scavenger hunt for outdoor art installations. From designer dolphin sculptures to a twelve-ton King Neptune bronze, the smooth seaside pathway is adorned with a bevy of larger-than-life works of art. Want to see more? Expand the bike route to include a ride through the neighboring ViBe Creative District decorated with more than 50 different murals, street art and artists’ studios charted on a handy pocket map.
For those who crave the authentic flavor of the destination, the Lynnhaven River oyster is a native Virginia Beach delicacy renowned for its size and salty flavor. It has been nurtured from the brink of extinction and returned to the menus of the area’s top restaurants. Book a Pleasure House Oysters farm or boat tour and dinner to balance entertainment and education with an unforgettable waterfront experience.
Finally, toast your meeting’s success with a distillery tour and tasting inside the historic Cavalier Hotel, home to North America’s first in-hotel distillery. The Tarnished Truth Distilling Company crafts their flagship bourbon, rye whiskey, AVA Vodka and other small batch varieties on premises and offers facility tours and a tasting room for cocktail classes and dinners.
No matter the season, a Virginia Beach meeting offers your group memorable culinary, arts and adventure options to build genuine rapport outside of the office.
