Virginia Beach

Virginia Beach is built on, around and near water everywhere. When you drive the expressways you are either going into a tunnel or over a bridge most of the time. There is so much history in and near this city that it would take months to see it all. Virginia Beach is a great hub for touring Williamsburg, Jamestown, Norfolk and into the Blue Ridge Mountains - all these historic and beautiful sites can be visited as a day trip from VB.

    Blue Ridge Mountains is off the beaten path from Virginia Beach, but a great long weekend get-a-way.

    sugar Tree Inn tip looks good, but misplaced...Virginia Beach is not near the Blue Ridge Parkway or Appalachian trail??

    i love checking out this museum, even though i live here. They have a cool art nouveau collection. There are tons of collections from every era and it's good for families with older kids.

    I didn't go in the old Lighthouse - I just took pictures of it. That's a good picture of the new lighthouse

    I really enjoyed your outstanding pages on Virginia Beach. I especially was impressed with the Chrysler Museum, Sugar Tree Inn, andthe Baptist Conference center (story). Great photos to match excellent commentary.

    I was in the Cape Hatteras area shorty after Isabel--and the damage, though localized, was incredible. These are great tips, I like Virginia Beach...but the traffic on the Chesapeake and Monitor-Merrimac bridge tunnels...that I can do without.
