Great Things To Do And See In Virginia Beach In The Spring

Great Things To Do And See In Virginia Beach In The Spring

35 miles of coastline. 3 miles of boardwalk. We love living in or near Virginia Beach. In addition to the beautiful beach, the city boasts a great food scene, outdoor adventures, natural beauty, interesting museums, and historical sites. In the Spring, our atmosphere is slow paced, and laid-back. It is a great time for ‘locals’ to enjoy all the city has to offer. Here are our choices for some fun springtime activities. Enjoy.

Hiking At First Landing State Park

This park is a beautiful, natural place, but also remember that it sits on the spot where the first European settlers landed in America. First Landing State Park is unique with over a mile of dune-lined beachfront and almost 20 miles of walking/biking trails through protected marsh habitats. 

 

top things to do in Virginia Beach Kayaking Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge

Kayaking In Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge 

Kayaking through the waterways of the Back Bay Wildlife Refuge is a relaxing experience. Surf & Adventure offers 1.5 hour guided tours that launch from their location. The refuge is a bird lover’s heaven with bald eagles and shore birds making appearances regularly. Afterward, you can enjoy lunch or dinner at local favorite Blue Pete’s restaurant in the area. 

Flying In An Antique War Plane At The Military Aviation Museum

This museum has dozens of classic military aircraft from World Wars I and II, and it offers a fantastic adventure with the opportunity to fly in one! You can feel the thrill of the wind ripping through your leather helmet. This season flights begin on April 23rd.

Getting Your Adrenaline Pumping At Adventure Park

‘Adventure’ is even in their name at the Adventure Park at Virginia Aquarium! Their ropes courses will definitely get your blood pumping! It is our area’s equivalent to the thrill of scaling a mountain! If you have never done it before, the guides there will show you how to stay safe and sound in the harness. Plus, one of our top attractions is right next door so you can also check out the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center. Enjoy over 300 species of local animals and sealife including otters, turtles, and seals. Plan ahead, as this museum offers some outstanding boat tours too! 

Walking the Virginia Beach Boardwalk

Walking The Virginia Beach Boardwalk

Spring is a sweet spot when you can pretend you’re a tourist before the boardwalk gets crowded this summer. You can walk the 3.4 miles, bring your bike, or rent a 6-person bike for family fun. You can enjoy all the shops, restaurants, and entertainment that the oceanfront has to offer. 

Best Things to do in Virginia Beach Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art

Admiring Artwork At The Virginia Museum Of Contemporary Art (MOCA)

You can expand your modern art knowledge at this superb museum. MOCA fosters awareness, understanding, and exploration of the arts. You can visit often, as the exhibitions change frequently. Currently the featured exhibition is called The Art Of The ViBE which celebrates local artists who are part of Virginia Beach’s ViBe Creative District

Old Cape Henry Lighthouse in Virginia Beach

Climbing To The Top Of The Cape Henry Lighthouse

This historic lighthouse is located in the middle of an operating military base. You will need to show your ID and have your vehicle searched to gain access to the lighthouse. You can climb the 191 steps to the top for a great view of both the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. The construction of this lighthouse was authorized by George Washington, and overseen by Alexander Hamilton. How’s that for history?!

What to do in Virginia Beach Food Scene

Savoring The Food Scene

Virginia Beach has a burgeoning food scene and we are here for it! From stellar charcuterie boards at Esoteric and farm-to-table goodness at Commune, to tapas at Pacifica and a modern Japanese take at Baby Izakaya, it’s all here now! Local seafood is highlighted on most menus too!

Stopping By The Ferry Plantation House

Get a taste of Virginia’s historic plantations by stopping to see the Ferry Plantation House. It dates to 1642, but today’s home was built in 1830. A home tour will show you what life was like on a plantation, but the big draw is the story of Grace Sherwood. Grace was the last ‘witch’ to be convicted and tried by water. She is said to haunt the house. 

Soaking Up The Sun At Sandbridge Beach

During the summer months, you can take a break from the crowds at the oceanfront and visit Sandbridge Beach. It is a decidedly quieter five-mile stretch of beautiful beach and dunes south of the resort area. It makes the perfect escape for a picnic lunch that you packed at home, or picked up at the Sandbridge Seaside Market
