Virginia Beach is much more than a visitor can imagine. When you visit New York or Miami or Chicago and any other large major city you know what to expect and you have high aspirations for your vacation. When you visit Virginia Beach you think about sun and surf and are either unaware of the many other activities and attractions of the area or you do not give them serious consideration.
Besides the boardwalk there are many more activities to do. There are the parks and the wildlife refuge. There is Town Center. There are hundreds of restaurants. Virginia Beach has museums and a calendar of concerts and other performances. It has an amphitheater.
The location of Virginia Beach is outstanding. It is in the Hampton Roads area comprising seven large cities and several smaller cities and towns. Within a half hour you can be in Norfolk or Chesapeake, or Portsmouth. A little while longer and you have Suffolk and Newport News and Hampton. Within an hour you can reach the historic triangle of Jamestowm, Williamsburg, and Yorktown. Each of these places and the other small towns and cities have a list of activities and attractions. Norfolk has minor league baseball and hockey teams and the Naval Base and other attractions.
There is plenty to do in Virginia Beach and the surrounding area. Tourists can return for many years before they see most of the attractions.
