If there is one thing my husband and I like to do every once in a while, it is to get away from it all. The stress of life can really get to both of us. There is one place that we could visit over and over again. Can you guess where this place is? You guessed right, Virginia Beach. If you are wondering what you can do in this awesome getaway location, check it out. Remember that Virginia Beach is much more than a beach.
Enjoy the nightlife
Whenever we are on our own, there is nothing we enjoy more than the nightlife. The music, stars, and long walks on the beach are just the beginning. Staying at a resort, like Resort Beach, in Virginia Beach is unforgettable. There are restaurants and so much more.
One of the places that we’d recommend is Esoteric’s, the dinner atmosphere is amazing and the area provides live music with a relaxing ambiance. One of my favorite parts is the boardwalk/ocean backdrop at Neptune’s Park and the fire-pit at Catch 31.
Enjoying the sunset
Another favorite “couples” thing we like to do when visiting Virginia Beach is watching the sunset together. One of my favorite places to watch the sunset in Virginia Beach is at Sandbridge Beach. Taking in the sunset at Little Island Park is something that I will remember for many years to come. It’s also a favorite of my husband.
Relaxing on the waterfront
I hate to admit it, but the reason we get away from it all is to relax. I love to spend time with my husband, enjoying drinks by the waterfront. There is just something unforgettable about seeing the water, sand, and stars together. I think the water is beautiful during the day, but seeing the beach at night brings about a whole new set of indescribable feelings.
You’ll want to make a point of stopping to enjoy a dockside cocktail at The Back Deck or Chick’s Oyster Bar – both are located at Chesapeake Bay Beach on Lynnhaven River. There’s incredible views that you won’t want to miss! Plus, if you’re like me and love to paddle-board this is the place to check that out as well!
Horseback riding has always been a favorite of mine. Riding a horse on the beach is something that you will never forget. Plus, it’s so much fun to experience this with your partner. Imagine spending the day at Chesapeake Bay Beach and ending the day with horseback riding. My favorite part of Chesapeake Bay Beach is seeing Cape Henry Lighthouse, it is so beautiful.
There’s so many different fun and relaxing things to do near the waterfront – make sure to schedule lots of time hanging out there on your trip!
What a thrill! Have you ever went parasailing? It’s one of those things you have to experience at least once and being in the Virginia Beach area to the perfect time!
