Find-A-Kid Program

Many of the hotels and motels in Virginia Beach participate in the Find-A-Kid Wristband Program. This free and voluntary program helps parents quickly locate children that wander off from their families by providing an identification wristband at the front desk to children 10 and under.  Be sure to ask your hotel if they participate in the Find-A-Kid Program.
