Virginia Beach Vacation

7 posts in this topic

Hi everybody. Im planning a trip to VB sometime this summer, probley in Sept/Oct. It will be my first trip to the beach which doesn't revolve around the Grand Strand. So are there any suggestions of what to do down there. I'm planning on being there for about a week so theres alot of time. I already have been to Bush Gardens and Water Country so thats out. I also will be bringing my 14 year old cousin so what is there for him to do. Any oceanfront hotels that you guys suggest? I kinda got a thing for high-rise hotels so thats what im going for. So can anyone help me out. I looked and it also seems like the Town Center is coming along nicely so I might visit it as well.

The hilton at the oceanfront is 21 stories and even has a skybar. Thats the first place i'd try if i'm looking for a highrise hotel.

All of these are great places to visit, also try McArthur Mall, it's a little more upscale than Lynnhaven but Lynnhaven is a good mall to. I venture to both of them every now and then.

Yeah, a Tides game definately. I'm going to one this summer and can't wait! Even though its not the majors, its still lots of fun!! And don't forgot MacArthur mall too....lots of fun. I personally enjoy the upscale atmosphere more than the shopping itself. :thumbsup:
