Why move to Virginia Beach?
Virginia Beach, a coastal city in southeastern Virginia, lies where the Chesapeake Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean. A 3-mile boardwalk stretches along its beach-lined oceanfront and Virginia is even in Guinness as having the longest pleasure beach in the world, but at 250 square miles, the city itself goes well beyond the beach. The bayside First Landing State Park marks the 1607 arrival of the Jamestown colonists from England. The Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center exhibits ocean life including sharks, rays and sea turtles in globally themed habitats.
The popular Neptune Festival attracts over 500,000 visitors to the beach every year and is consistently listed in the top 100 festivals in the country. Don’t miss the North American Sandsculpting Championship while you’re here and make sure you get your picture taken with King Neptune on the boardwalk – it’s a must. The Boardwalk fun doesn’t start and end at Neptune. Filled with free attractions all summer long like a beach circus, twice-weekly fireworks, a huge handicap-accessible playground, restaurants, and ice cream shops, it’s a great place to walk.
On top of all the fun, there's the local production of corn, soybeans, pork, wheat and dairy; over 150 farms keep eating local in Virginia Beach possible. Every Saturday, you can visit the Old Beach Farmers Market to find fresh fruits and veggies, handmade breads, artisan foods, and those amazing blue crabs the Chesapeake is known for.
