Whether you are or aren't a conventional beach person, Virginia Beach beckons everyone who comes by here. It has over 18,600 acres devoted to state parks and wildlife areas and more than 121 miles of navigable waterways. It also has 35 miles of ocean and inlet beaches that provide visitors with several enchanting landscapes to explore the great outdoors.
If you have an exploratory nature, you should check out Virginia Beach's salt water marsh habitats on its East Coast. Water here forms lakes, rivers, bays, marsh areas and water fingers that finally empty into the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. To get the best of this experience, it's advisable to go kayaking.
Alternatively, you can chill on the ocean front or go for a long walk on the main street or the boardwalk looking for gifts for friends or try the local cuisine or fresh food, grills and bars or try some of the ice cream here. If you're a history buff, you can check out the several monuments and statues on the ocean front, for instance the Virginia Legends walk.
Virginia Beach is well-equipped to accommodate the most discerning traveler here with its wide range of motels and hotels. Most of them can give you superb ocean views from your hotel room and undercover parking. There are lots of parking spaces for those who are going there for a day.
