Things to Do and See
Virginia Beach’s lagoons and bays are perfectly suited for kayaking and canoeing, so don't let this chance pass you by. Surfers will have a blast at the Croatan beach. In the mood to fish? Pack your gear and embark on a fishing expedition where striped bass, sea bass, trout, bluefish, and skipjack await. December to March is a great time to spot humpback and fin whales and bottlenose dolphins.
There are plenty of man-made attractions in Virginia Beach. Start with a visit to the Cape Henry Lighthouse where sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay await. Next visit one of America's largest and most-visited aquariums, the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center, which also houses an outdoor aviary. The oceanfront Old Coast Guard Station has a beautifully restored museum that recounts the history of shipwrecks that took place just off the Virginia Beach coast.

The Best Activities for Families in Virginia Beach
The most obvious highlight on any Virginia Beach family vacation is the beautiful beaches. Stroll the 3-mile boardwalk lining the golden sands of Virginia Beach's beautiful oceanfront, with swimming, snorkeling, and sunbathing spots literally every step of the way from Croatan Beach all the way to Cape Henry Lighthouse. That's not to mention gorgeous Chic's Beach and Ocean View Beach in the north.
The beach isn't only about the sand and the sea — the Virginia Beach Boardwalk hosts outdoor summer concerts. Grommet Island Park, meanwhile, has picnic tables and playgrounds, and the vintage Virginia Beach Surf & Rescue Museum details the important heritage of coastal rescue missions and shipwrecks in Virginia.
Away from the oceanfront, you'll find plenty more family-friendly attractions and activities.

There's also the Ocean Breeze Water Park, Atlantic Fun Park, and mega go-kart racetrack at Motor World if you're seeking family-friendly thrills.
The Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art, the Ferry Plantation House, and the hands-on Children's Museum of Virginia provide plenty of opportunities for learning while having fun on a Virginia Beach family vacation.
Plan a trip to the eco-friendly Mount Trashmore Park which was built by compacting layers of clean soil and solid waste. The park has picnic areas, a skate park, and a walking trail to keep visitors occupied. The most visited state park in Virginia is the First Landing State Park where 2,700 acres of pond, protected salt marsh habitat, dunes, and maritime forests beckon.
The Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge and False Cape State Park are not far behind with their spectacular ecosystems comprising dunes, barrier islands, freshwater marshes, and maritime forests.
