Virginia vacations can be some of the most fun you or your family has had in years. From the loads of historic monuments to the sandy beaches, to the posh bed and breakfasts, Virginia vacations are just the right answer to what to do and where to go this year.
Virginia Beach vacations are increasingly popular as Virginia Beach, Virginia grows in size each year to encompass all the great nightlife and beach activities you have to choose from. Virginia Beach vacations can include fun days spent basking on the beach, or a day spent exploring the Boardwalk Art Show, Neptune Festival, or the East Coast Surfing Championship. Virginia Beach vacations are also fantastic getaways for music lovers with the many live music nightlife venues as well as the annual Beach Music Weekend offered in May.
Virginia Beach family vacations and Virginia Beach vacation packages are not such a different story than those catered to young adults or couples and offer the same great activities. On Virginia Beach family vacations you can also choose to take the family to the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center, the Cape Henry Lighthouses, or the Ocean Breeze Waterpark for kids who can’t get enough of water slides and sunning by the pool, or you can purchase a Virginia Beach vacation package from an area hotel such as the Fairfield Inn & Suites located oceanfront. Often Virginia Beach vacation packages will include ocean or bay outings or other offers such as golf course privileges. To find out about other Virginia Beach vacation packages contact a travel advisor or booking agent.
Besides Virginia Beach family vacations, Virginia vacations offer visitors the chance to visit Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, and the Yorktown Victory Center, three historic monuments and living history museums located within minutes of each other. Choose to stay in a Colonial Williamsburg B&B during your stay, or just drive up for the day taking your time to view the spectacular scenery. All three towns will be a joy for the whole family and serve to educate you on the finer points of 17th century life.
Virginia vacations will also take you into the famous Blue Ridge Mountains. If you’ve come to enjoy football, take a drive through Roanoke’s Blue Ridge Parkway before heading down to Blacksburg to enjoy a Virginia Tech football game. Don’t forget to bring your “Hokie” hat and stay long enough to tour the scenic campus.
Other Virginia vacations of interest are trips to Chesapeake Bay where you can enjoy excellent sport fishing and year round vacation rentals for you and your family. While you’re there, take some time to visit Colonial Beach, one of the few remaining small seaport towns on the Potomac River.
Wherever you choose to go on your next Virginia vacation, whether it’s Virginia Beach or Historic Jamestown, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how fascinating and fun Virginia vacations can be.
