When considering Virginia Beach things to do, visitors and locals know they have ocean waves on which to raft, jet-ski, surf, parasail, paddleboard, and spy dolphins. But things to do at Virginia Beach, which include activities for both grownup and kids, extend far past white water froth. Historic Virginia Beach attractions such as the Cape Henry Lighthouse offer visitors a chance to travel in time. When they're ready to come back to the present, the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art is ready with exhibits and studio-art classes. The most fun way to splatter paint, however, might be paintball—an activity that, like horseback riding, sees active journeyers breaking a sweat on land instead of on sea.
