Beyond memories, you experience a feeling. It’s the thrill of loading the car with beach gear, tucking in your beside-themselves-withexcitement family, and hitting the open road that leads to the oceanfront. It’s the sweet reminiscence of youth as you watch your children chasing crabs for the first time. It’s the warmth of the sun’s rays on your neck as you step out for the first summer beach session.

TRIP ADVISOR TRAVELERS’ CHOICE 2012

Here, you’ll sense a year-round summer fragrance to the air and rhythm to the streets, the essence of the beach life. Virginia Beach is the feeling; the adventure is discovering it for yourself.

coast (v): to proceed easily without special application of effort or concern

Try on another way of living. Hotel or vacation rental home? Atlantic Ocean or Chesapeake Bay? Peace and quiet or right in the thick of it? Maybe somewhere in between? Whatever it is you desire in a beach, our lovely stretch of Virginia coast aims to please. There’s more to this than soft sands and rolling waves. It’s the way you feel when your lungs fill with salt air, and the possibility of a day all to yourself. Or the sensation of the warm sun as it ­evaporates tiny drops of ocean from your skin. There’s the echo of birds and laughter that cause you to wonder what you’ll see when you open your eyes. You might be dreaming; you might be feeling this for the first time in a long time. You might be more yourself than ever.

The place to see and be seen. Our three-mile boardwalk is only part of what makes the ­Resort Area so ­irresistible. From Croatan Beach to the south, up to the North End Beaches, this is where V ­ irginia Beach reveals its outgoing nature. There’s a park-like atmosphere here that goes on for miles. With a separate bike path, the boardwalk is ­perfect for roller-blading, ­jogging or just strolling. Sunbathers come for the wide sandy beaches. Surfers come for the waves. Everyone comes for the people-watching.

YOU CAN’T PUT A PRICE ON THIS

Some secrets are meant to be shared. Kinder, gentler waves, can be found in the calm ­waters of the Chesapeake Bay, just off Shore Drive. From swimming to sand c ­ astles to volleyball, all the traditional beach rituals are here. And nothing beats an evening stroll or dining at a fine restaurant as the sun sets over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. ­Anglers can fish from the shore, Lynnhaven Pier, o­­­r launch a boat and head out to the heart of the Bay. Runners, bikers and campers can ­explore the lush green of First Landing State Park. GETTING THERE: From the Resort Area head north on ­Atlantic Avenue until it turns into Shore Drive. Continue west, through First Landing State Park to the Bay Area.

Coastal village charm in its natural state. Located 15 miles south of (and 180º opposite) the Resort Area, Sandbridge is a ­secluded beach hideaway of ­pristine sand dunes and dancing sea oats. Beachside, the Atlantic never fails to entertain. And for those craving even more of the great outdoors, the marshes and open waters of Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge and False Cape State Park make for great kayaking, biking, hiking, birding and fishing. Vacation rental homes and condominium rentals are available year-round.

GETTING THERE: From the Resort Area head south on P ­ acific A ­ venue which turns into General Booth Boulevard, then left onto Princess Anne Road. ­­­Continue straight onto Sandbridge Road.

BEACH ACCESS IS FREE! Items listed throughout the guide are identified by a color block, showing in which area of Virginia Beach you’ll find a ­particular attraction or a ­ ccommodation. This color-coded map shows the areas. For ­instance, a hotel at the oceanfront is identified by a n, while a marina on the Chesapeake Bay carries a n, and a pier in Sandbridge shows a n. Some listings are offered at multiple locations throughout the City, and don’t carry a color block. VisitVirginiaBeach.com

Coastal Cuisine Where the waters of the Atlantic Ocean meet the Chesapeake Bay, you can count on the freshest catch – tuna, rockfish, mahi, crab, you name it. In fact, freshness is a guiding principle in Virginia Beach kitchens, where just-picked produce fuses with just-caught seafood for surprising and palate-pleasing results. Here, the casual beach resort lifestyle you enjoy has a place at the table – and you won’t pay an arm and a leg for the East Coast’s best cuisine. Imagine fresh tuna, pan seared and topped with an ancho p ­ epper, s­ undried tomato, and shiitake mushroom salsa. Or clams baked with herbs, peppers, onions and bacon. Pan-fried lump crab cake served with sweet bell pepper relish and lemon crème fraîche. Oysters topped with shrimp, bacon, leeks, lemon and a touch of Tabasco®. Is your mouth watering? Whether you crave exotic flavors, the simple beauty of fresh ingredients, or a truly new twist on traditional favorites, Virginia Beach restaurants promise atmosphere and taste-tempting pleasure.

The Perfect Setting Virginia Beach cuisine is marked by fresh ­ingredients, with flavors coming t­ ogether in unexpected and ­perfectly seasoned ways. Yet, there’s an art to creating the ideal d ­ ining experience that doesn’t ­happen in a kitchen. Here are some suggestions. Create your own progressive dinner. Sample the resort area. Rent a beach cruiser, hop off at different spots for appetizers, a main course and dessert. Here’s hoping you burn as many calories as you take in. Contact local food tour companies for options. Celebrate local favorites. Let events and festivals throughout the year be your guide to the area’s most celebrated specialties. The Virginia Beach R ­ estaurant Association’s Restaurant Week, Beach Event’s Mediterranean Weekend and the East Coast She Crab Soup Classic are just a sampling of the delicious events, wine and beer festivals offering great deals and fantastic flavor. Breakfast hideaways. Rise early and find your way to one of ­several unique local breakfast haunts. Settle in for a crab omelet, or a stack of p ­ ancakes with local strawberries on the side. F­­­ish tales from the resident “old salts” are free of charge.­ Fresh catch, provided by you. Local restaurants like Waterman’s and Dockside will prepare your catch in a variety of ways. Paddle to Blue Pete’s. Take a guided Paddle Feast tour to kayak the waters of Back Bay to a favorite local restaurant. Coffee at sunrise. For the cottage set, the day begins with your favorite brew and a spectacular sunrise, and culminates with a true beach feast – steamed crabs and shrimp from a local m ­ arket, enjoyed atop newspapers on a picnic table. Farm-grown sweetness. Fresh produce stands will keep you ­eating healthy, even on vacation. Try Pungo strawberries and l­ocally-grown ­tomatoes, or visit one of our local Farmers Markets. True romance. Think you’d be a true romantic if only the Atlantic Ocean could provide a beautiful sunset to go with your dinner? No worries, head to the Chesapeake Bay Area and watch the big red ball sink into the water. Go upscale. For a taste of the cosmopolitan life after a day in the sun, head to Town Center for dining, shopping and entertainment. Virginia restaurants are smoke-free.

When your dearly beloved gather in Virginia Beach, there’s happiness all around.

Weddings & Reunions Wedded bliss begins right here.

There are so many things that make your wedding day uniquely your own. The dress, the tux, the food, the s ­ pecial person you’ll spend the rest of your life with. But perhaps the most memorable thing of all is ­location. Where you are on the day that you say “I Do” will be ­forever embedded in your memory as the place where your entire life changed. A Virginia Beach wedding ­promises a truly special beginning to your life-long journey together. You and your better-half-to-be may enjoy the idea of a calm sunset ceremony with the waves crashing behind you, or perhaps another scene as lively as your love for each other. You can dictate specifically how you want your day to be. Our new Beach Wedding Permit gives couples the ability to celebrate their ceremony right on the beach, certain that their place by the shore is available and accessible. For up to three hours you can reserve a space of public beach for you and your guests to set up and enjoy your wedding event. In addition to the public beaches of the Resort Area, there are many secluded beaches such as the Chesapeake Bay and Sandbridge. Virginia Beach also offers several indoor options for those who would prefer to enjoy their celebration on firmer, more traditional ground. Some unique spots include the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center, where your ­celebration takes place among the Aquarium’s marine life. Perhaps you are more inclined to a modern and stylish event? The Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art and the Virginia

ID Accommodations and ­Campgrounds The City of Virginia Beach and the Hotel/ Motel Association want your stay to be happy and carefree. Some properties may not be open year round, so it is best to make a reservation prior to arriving. When you make a reservation at one of our hotels or motels, a deposit ­secured by check, credit card or money order may be required. Reservations are confirmed upon receipt of your deposit by the hotel. ­Familiarize yourself with and inquire about c ­ ancellation policies, early checkouts, refunds, number of people in the room and any fees ­associated with lodging stay, as policies vary from one hotel to another.

Changes in Reservations Hotels may require up to seven (7) days written notice of cancellation prior to arrival date. PLEASE BE AWARE that some lodging establishments do charge an ­administrative fee for cancellation of accommodations. Early Checkouts and Refunds Hotels may require up to, but no more than, 72 hours notice when a guest requests a change in a previously set departure date. Weekly, monthly and group rates are subject to the confirmation or contract.

When a Refund is Due Standard bookkeeping practices are observed. Refund checks are usually mailed from the hotel’s business ­office. Refunds are not usually made from the registration desk. Changes in Rates This publication was assembled in the fall of 2013. Due to a number of factors, it is impos­­sible to insure that the published rates for a hotel will not change. The publisher has no control over this situation. Holiday and weekend rates may be slightly higher. Please inquire about the rate when making reservations.

Minimum Stays Some hotels require two-, three- or four-day minimum stays for confirmed reservations, ­including weekends and holidays.

For further information and assistance with accommodations, contact the Virginia Beach Visitor Information Center at 1-800-VA BEACH (1-800-822-3224) or (757) 437-4882. The City of Virginia Beach has relied on ­information supplied by our tourist-related ­businesses and cannot guarantee accuracy.

Play It Safe • Never swim alone. Swim near a lifeguard. • Ask a lifeguard about water conditions. • Red flags = dangerous water. • Know your swimming ability. • Stay close to shore. • Flotation devices are no substitute for swimming ability. • If caught in a rip current, swim parallel to shore. • Never leave children unattended. • Don’t dive. Go feet first. • Avoid the water at night, dawn, or dusk, and avoid shiny jewelry or swimwear. • Body surfers should keep their arms in front to avoid injury. • Protect your skin. Use sunscreen.
