A Weekend in Virginia Beach

Virginia Beach has multiple different districts, from the hustle and bustle of Town Center to the calm and relaxing atmosphere of Pungo.  Take time to experience all the charming gems that Virginia Beach has to offer.

Start your day off by fueling up at one of the many local coffee shops. Pourfavor Coffee is well known for its coffee flights. These are usually four to six cups of different coffees such as cold brews, lattes and macchiato. Other hot spots for coffee include Bad Ass Coffee located in the ViBe Creative District or Town Center Cold Pressed located in Town Center. 

Spend some time down at the vibrant Oceanfront. With miles of beaches and a boardwalk, there is always something to do. Be sure to snap a picture with the giant King Neptune statue on 31st Street. For a cool and sweet treat, head over to Hershey’s Ice Cream over on Atlantic Ave. Grab a group of friends and rent out a group bicycle for a quick way to get around the boardwalk. 

For the adrenaline junkies, visit iFly Virginia Beach, an indoor skydiving arena, or try parasailing over the Atlantic Ocean courtesy of Pirates Parasail. 

If the beach isn’t your cup of tea, go on a walking tour of the ViBe Creative District. The district showcases local artists’ murals. Via their website, you can easily access the tour route via Google Maps. The ViBe District is also home to multiple craft shops, art galleries and local places to eat. 

Get in touch with your wild side and spend a few hours at the Virginia Zoo or Virginia Aquarium. Or stop and smell the roses at Norfolk Botanical Gardens. If museums are more of your thing, check out the Chrysler Museum or the Museum of Contemporary Art. 

With a plethora of things to do in and around Virginia Beach, you’ll never be bored.
