    Chesapeake Bay near Virginia Beach is a wonderful spot to explore nature and check out one of the country’s largest estuaries. There’s obviously mouth watering seafood joints around the Bay, so visit one after you spend the day exploring!

  • Food and Drink

  • Virginia has a variety of phenomenal restaurants & awesome breweries/wineries for you to check out. Oysters are actually the oldest food in the state, when English settlers pulled up fresh oysters out of the James River in 1607. Today, you don’t have to go fishing for oysters to enjoy them.
