Hotels in Virginia Beach

Virginia Beach Guide

Virginia Beach hugs 35 miles of coastline along the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay in southwestern Virginia. Combine that with the city’s multitude of bays and wetlands—including the nearly 10,000-acre Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge, a critical resting point for migratory birds—and it’s easy to see why it’s been nicknamed “Neptune City” after the Roman god of the sea. Millions of visitors flock to Virginia Beach each year to take advantage of this oceanfront setting filled with golden-sand beaches, high-rise resorts, and family-friendly activities.

Three Sandy Beaches

  • Best beach for entertainment: The wooden boardwalk on Resort Beach was named one of America’s best by Travel + Leisure. Shops are abundant, as are restaurants with open-air patios.
  • Best beach for swimming: Chesapeake Bay Beach overlooks the calm waters of Chesapeake Bay, where waves are smaller and gentler.
  • Best beach for peace and quiet: Located 15 miles south of bustling Resort Beach, Sandbridge Beach boasts windswept dunes and sea oats.

Family-Friendly Attractions

  • Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center: See cownose rays and sand sharks swim in front of you; there’s even a rare tomistoma crocodile, which soaks in a re-created Malaysian peat-swamp habitat.
  • A bicycle built for six: Up to 12 legs can help pedal a surrey bicycle, a sort of covered buggy with pedals. Available for rent along the boardwalk at Resort Beach.
  • From trash to treasure: Mount Trashmore Park used to be a landfill until it was converted to a playplace complete with two playgrounds, a skate park, and multi-use paths.

400 Years of History

  • English colony: In 1607, settlers from the Virginia Company of London dropped their anchors in what is now Virginia Beach, where they erected the First Landing Cross to claim the area for England.
  • Historical lighthouse: You can get a nice view of Chesapeake Bay from the octagonal stone lighthouse at Cape Henry, completed in 1792.
  • Military history: A B-17 Flying Fortress and a Spitfire fighter plane from World War II are highlights of the Military Aviation Museum.

Where to Stay

  • Belvedere Beach Resort features an outdoor heated pool, complimentary bicycles, and a retro diner. It’s steps from Resort Beach.
  • Virginia Beach Resort Hotel: Look out onto Chesapeake Bay from private balconies in the suites at this hotel, which come equipped with kitchenettes.
  • Ocean Key Resort: Located at the southern end of Resort Beach, this resort has oceanfront views from its guest rooms and a second-floor patio with contemporary furnishings.

Armed with the culinary wizardry he developed while training under renowned chefs Rick Bayless, Roberto Donna, and Michael Chiarello, Swan Terrace's Executive Chef Scott Simpson tantalizes taste buds with regional and colonial cuisine featuring freshly caught seafood and tender chunks of beef, lamb, pork, and chicken. The menu changes twice a year to take advantage of whatever locally sourced ingredients are in season, ingredients that Simpson transfigures into luscious main courses such as Chesapeake crab cakes, grilled Atlantic salmon with asparagus and herb mashed potatoes, and lemon-herb rotisserie chicken with mushroom-barley risotto. A fireplace warms patrons so they don't have to burn their socks for heat as they dine around the open kitchen. Heat lamps and fire pits ring the outdoor terrace, allowing diners to enjoy views of meticulously manicured english gardens or a pond inhabited by swans any time of year.

Atop the hill near Kitty Hawk where human-powered aviation was born, a 60-foot granite obelisk topped by a shining marine beacon commemorates the achievements of Wilbur and Orville Wright. Located just about a mile north of the Ramada Plaza, the Wright Brothers National Memorial includes wind-tunnel reproductions, replicas of the brothers' early gliders, memorabilia, and the pinch of Tinker Bell's pixie dust that made the flight possible.A couple miles south of the hotel, some of the tallest natural sand dunes on the East Coast stand at Jockey’s Ridge State Park. The mounds of constantly shifting sand would fill 6 million dump-truck beds. Combative winds from the northeast and southwest keep the dunes from blowing away. Further south, Cape Hatteras National Seashore has earned the nickname “Graveyard of the Atlantic” for the many ships that have wrecked during storms on its dangerous shoals. Wildlife, including nesting seas turtles, abounds, and the surfing is considered some of the best on the East Coast.

Part of the Historic Triangle of Virginia, Williamsburg played a central role during the American Revolution, as American forces gathered there in 1781 to march to Yorktown for the final British defeat. The city pays homage to its patriotic past at Colonial Williamsburg, where tourists stroll past historic buildings as fifers march in Revolutionary War regalia. The Yorktown Battlefield is only a short drive east, where a park ranger guides visitors along the British defense and tells the story of the Revolutionary War's final siege.The 18th-century-style specialty boutiques along Merchants Square sell everything from whimsical toys to hand-cooked Virginia peanuts. In addition to its historic sites, Williamsburg boasts a thriving artistic community, with original folk art and paint-by-number self-portraits of the Founding Fathers displayed at several galleries and art exhibits throughout the city.
