Holding a record for the longest pleasure beach in the world, Virginia Beach showcases 35 miles of coastline and maintains a longstanding reputation as a family-friendly vacation destination.
Kids will enjoy Virginia Beach and Jamestown Settlement. Go for a jaunt from Virginia Beach to Williamsburg to see Bruton Parish Episcopal Church about 1h 20 min away. There's much more to do: take in the waterfront at Virginia Beach Boardwalk, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center, enjoy the sand and surf at Sandbridge Beach, and get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour.
