Visit Virginia Beach This Summer!!

This summer when you are making your family vacation plans, consider visiting beautiful Virginia Beach. I know that when I am looking for places to vacation to, I look for places that have a beautiful scenery, and Virginia Beach has that. At Virginia Beach you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the ocean. When at the beach you can enjoy splashing in the waves, the nice ocean breeze, playing in the sand and building sand castles and much more! I know that when I am planning a vacation, I always look for activities to do that are kid friendly. At Virginia Beach there are many great activities to do and attractions to see that are kid friendly and the whole family can enjoy. We love fishing and while visiting Virginia Beach I know that our kids would really enjoy fishing in the Atlantic Ocean by fishing off of the Virginia Beach Fishing Pier. Then we can head over to the Virginia Aquarium and learn about sea life then head out on the ocean for some dolphin watching. Another great activity would be to spend a day at the Ocean Breeze Waterpark, and spend the day playing and riding some really fun water rides with the kids!! In the late afternoons it would be nice to take a walk to Neptune Park and check out the giant King Neptune statue and take some fun pictures that we can add to our scrapbook when we got home.

Something that I have always wanted to do is kayak on the ocean, but at Virginia Beach I could go on a kayak excursion with dolphins!!!

Another thing that I look for when planning a vacation is the dinning. One family friendly place to dine that I know my kids will enjoy is Waterman’s Beachwood Grill. We can enjoy fresh caught seafood on the ocean front patio for some really great dinning. Last, when looking to plan a really great vacation, I look for the lodging that is available. We love to be outdoors and we love camping. One place I think we might have to stay at for a couple of nights would be the North Bay Shore Virginia Beach Family Camping. The kids would really enjoy it and I know we would as well. From the cabins that we can rent to the boats and canoes to rent and enjoy with the kids. Then after a couple of days of camping, we would head to the Cavalier Hotel and enjoy the nice relaxing accommodations that they have to offer!!! In all when you plan your vacation to Virginia Beach, you are sure to find something that will please everyone and have a very enjoyable and memorable vacation!!

    I would love to see the dolphins. I went to Mexico with a bunch of friends and we were heading out to see a school of dolphins and ……I got sea sick and they had to take me back to shore..I was so upset. They went back out and said the dolphins kept jumping beside the boat. I do hope I get to see them one day.
