Just a short drive from Washington, D.C. both locals and tourist are sure to enjoy this quaint beach town. Now, I must be honest, when my family said we were going to Virginia Beach for vacation I was upset. All I could think was, “why can’t we go to Disney or the Caribbean?” I had no idea what to expect or even if I would like it. Well, guess what?! I loved it. From the beach to the boardwalk to the restaurants to the town itself; the whole experience was beyond wonderful. I’m already planning my next trip back!
I would highly recommend this destination to anyone looking for a reasonably priced beach getaway. Read more for your ultimate Virginia Beach vacation guide.
One of the reasons why I enjoyed Virginia Beach is because we had an oceanfront view, which is very common for the hotels along the boardwalk. Visitors pay reasonable prices for breathtaking views, proximity to the ocean, restaurants and more. When booking your trip check out these hotels and resorts.
No need to travel far for food! Most hotels along the boardwalk include their own signature restaurant (most seafood). All restaurants are around the same price and offer a variety of choices from breakfast to beach bites to happy hour and dinner! Here’s a list of a few that we tried. Pro tip: try the orange crush, which can be found at many of the restaurants along the boardwalk (you can thank me later).
With Virginia Beach being the last largest town on the Virginia coast I can promise travelers will find something to do. After spending a few days at the beach, venture off to Bush Gardens, Colonial Williamsburg, Cape Henry Lighthouse or simply rent a bike a check out all the beautiful home along the coast.

Among its historic landmarks, you will find D.C. offers a variety of dining options perfect to satisfy any foodie! The food scene in D.C. matches its diverse culture from small cafe’s near national landmarks to boutique style restaurants in Georgetown to larger chain options near the center of the city and more!
Having recently visited D.C. I had the pleasure of experiencing a few different restaurants and cafe’s that offered large menus with a variety of choices. Check out my favorites below:
Martins Tavern: Ever wanted to dine with the president? Well here’s your chance (sorta)! Martins Tavern has seen its share of former presidents including a Henry Truman, The Bush Family, JFK and more. If your lucky you can even dine in one of the many tables the presidents sat in and let’s not forget the oh so famous booth where John proposed to Jackie. If you like a bar atmosphere, with comfort food and presidential history then I would recommend checking out Martin Tavern!

Ristorante Piccolo: Who says you have to go to Italy for homemade Italian food? Ristorante Piccolo is serving up popular homemade Italian cuisine sure to please any appetite. Pro tip: be sure to arrive early as the restaurant is small and fills up fast.

Founding Farmers: Looking for a modern restaurant with homemade dishes? Then I highly recommend checking out Founding Farmers. In 2005 Mark White a third -generation farmer and the president of the NDFU came together to showcase their passion by supporting their local farming community. That passion has led to having freshly sourced produce and more from over 40,000 farmers to the kitchen at Founding Farmers where all meals are prepared from scratch! I had the creamy vegetable bacon bucatini, which I gave two thumbs up. (pretty cool place right!?)
