Virginia Beach is known for inspiring an unforgettable performance or two. Just look at the daily sunrise over the Atlantic. But the true art of the beach life isn’t only found on the sand. From epic displays of the visuals arts to musical concerts and the performing arts, Virginia Beach’s family-friendly cultural arts have claimed their spot in the sunlight. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.
The beach is a giant playground where imaginations run wild, especially barefooted on the sand. The best part about Virginia Beach is that there is no shortage of activities for younger kids to enjoy. Throw in a surprise or two by catching some cownose rays at the Virginia Aquarium, explore natural surroundings along the trails of First Landing State Park, hit the monkey bars on Grommet Island Park, or explore, at a kid's pace, our miles and miles of pristine beaches.
Your family’s Virginia Beach Spring Break is destined for greatness with kids’ activities to bring out the 10-year old in all of us. The Virginia Aquarium is a great place to start. Along with the amazing creatures that inhabit the new Restless Planet exhibit, the Virginia Aquarium inspires wonder in nature-lovers of all ages. The family-friendly Mount Trashmore Park is another local favorite. Equipped with a fully stocked playground, walking trails, and a skate park, it’s a great place to burn off that energy before dinner. For more fun kid-friendly Spring Break ideas, click here.
Teenagers sometimes cringe at the idea of a "family vacation" because it means sharing close quarters and giving up freedom. It doesn't have to be so. There are lots of places that suit parents and meet the needs of teens as well. Virginia Beach is always on the selective teen vacation list. Why? The reasons are obvious, this place is fun. Our easily-walk able boardwalk and oceanfront area create a teenager superhighway connecting them to a variety of coastal shops, restaurants, and attractions that give them the freedom they crave in a safe environment that parents love.
