Virginia Beach

Virginia Beach is considered one of the world’s longest pleasure beaches and the home of some of the most breathtaking sunrises and sunsets in the country. It covers 30 miles of the beautiful Atlantic coast and offers a stretch of beach for everyone. Whether you are looking for lots of people and excitement or a stretch of quiet relaxing beach you can find it here!! Virginia Beach dates back to April 6, 1603, when English explorers arrived on what is now known as Chesapeake Bay. Over the next 14 years the colonists were able to make a successful settlement where Virginia Beach now resides. Virginia Beach has so much to experience outside of its beautiful beaches as well. This modern city is the backdrop of some of the oldest homes in the country representing a vast variety of architectural styles. The Adam Thoroughgood House is an English Style cottage from 1680 and is one of the oldest brick homes in America. The Lynnhaven House built in 1725 has massive chimneys and a small graveyard from the revolutionary war.
