Beautiful sunrise at the beach Welcome to Virginia Beach Everything the light touches is his Kingdom!
There he stands, guarding his seas and people, standing tall, gazing at the horizon; he is one with the ocean. King Neptune!
It is the Neptune Statue at the boardwalk of the Virginia Beach. VA Beach cooks up a mean sunset! Sunrise runs along the Virginia Beach Boardwalk never get old #goldenhour #waterlust First time here and it's lovely, not comparable to ocean city but in the off season it's peaceful and very relaxing.
#springfun So much room for fun along Virginia Beach's Boardwalk and #beach Heaven!!! If you are in the Virginia Beach area, stop at Duck Donuts. The basic vanilla cake donuts are made to order. You have your picks of frostings, toppings and drizzles. Here is a maple frosting donut and a peanut butter with chocolate drizzle donut. The donuts were warm and so good, I didn't care I was covered with the sticky frosting. There are handiwipes available-take some, you'll need it. Virginia is for lovers <3 The state lives upto the tagline! Virginia beach is around 2 hour drive from Richmond city. From bright happy sunny summer days at the beach to picturesque winter days, the beach is pretty much crowded all round the year! Beach parties, pony rides( like this one), fishing, watersports, variety of cuisines - you name it, its all there here! (well, I suggest you to do your research before you plan to do these things here!)
It is a perfect weekend getaway for a relaxed day at the beach to freshen up your mind! you can just take a stroll on the boardwalk, see the neptune statue, visit the avaition museum, do some kayaking or fishing. Live music in summer makes it a lot more fun!
#beachbound One of my fav past times is record shopping. I love how vinyl sounds and I also love finding little gems throughout the store for no-name bands or household names with some live jam session specific to that concert. So far my best find was fleetwood Mac, before Stevie nicks- best blues sounding music ever. Totally different sound. This was cheaper and great. All the food cooked to perfection while not having an ungodly wait time.
#springfun Sunrise on a cloudy day at Virginia Beach  Cotton candy sunsets Amazing place to visit especially with children! Feeding the birds. No foul language signs everywhere .. lol hard for this New Yorker Smile you've made it to Virginia Beach! #roadtrip This was the only way to cool down .. This night it was 98 at 1030 pm I like that a city actually posts a sign like this... Great beach! The New Zealand lamb chops- VERY good! The food was one of my favorite things about NZ second to the views. And their old fashioned gets 4 stars! The only reason it didn't get 5 is due to the bright pink coloring. Due to too much sugar I presume. They have half off wine Wednesday's! Completed the meal with a ginger tea. Absolutely lovely. American fusion $$ This is such a corky and awesome place food was delish and the nachos a little spicy.
#springfun the pier of virginia beach.
#beach #pier #ocean #virginiabeach #vacation Great morning walks on the beach Took the picture for the nice building and landscaped Ocean and boardwalk view from the table. Get their renowned Orange crush drink with the fresh local catch of the day. #Delicious #WeekendGetaway #Waterlust #Colorful Each year VA beach will put on a light show. It's $15 per car and you can drive along the boardwalk and check out the lights for 30 blocks. It was a bucket lis item but probably best if for kiddos.
