Virginia Beach, located at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, is a great draw for conventioneers and vacationers alike. The resort town is part of the most populated county in the state and is known as “America’s First Region.”
Virginia Beach is well known for drawing in surfing aficionados for August’s East Coast Surfing Championships, as well as beach soccer fans for June’s North American Sand Soccer Championships. State parks, historic attractions and institutions of higher learning attract even more visitors year round to this cultural and recreationally vibrant region.
Take a seaside walk from your Virginia Beach hotel, and enjoy the waterfront views. Virginia Beach has been featured in the Guinness World Records for having the longest pleasure beach in the world. The Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center will also provide hours of entertainment for you and any kids you might have in tow. Visit resident loggerhead turtles, great horned owls, and other indigenous creatures as well as those brought in from afar, like Indonesia’s Komodo dragon and arctic harbor seals.
Groups are treated like royalty at Virginia Beach. Take an organized excursion, arranged by the Virginia Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau, to local farmers’ markets as part of Taste of the Market tour, which includes an organics 101 tutorial. See the aquarium and enjoy a sustainable seafood lesson hosted by regional seafood experts as part of Taste of the Bay excursion.
