It turns out that Virginia Beach is an older, smaller version of Myrtle Beach, complete with the usual suspects – saltwater taffy, t-shirt shops and calabash buffets. The big difference between the two areas, besides size, is rejuvenation. Vabeach – is growing. This town is Navy base city and the area is also a booming vacation destination. The beach is the place to be – but be sure to book your hotel reservations in advance.
When visiting Richmond, be sure to make time for the Maymont historic mansions, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens. Long a family hot spot, Kings Dominion offers some intense roller coasters for the most fearless of souls. If shopping is more your speed, check out Carytown – long considered to be home to the hippest and trendiest shops in Richmond by locals and visitors alike.
