  • Road Trip to VA Beach!

    by Dave | Posted on July 27th, 2010

     If you love the beach and great cuisine, then a trip to Virginia Beach is a must this summer. On my recent trip there with some friends, we stayed at the beautiful Sheraton Oceanfront. It had great accommodations and even better views of the beach. The beds were so comfortable and the linens were luxurious. So much so that I asked where they buy them, and I am going to order some for myself. With two relaxing pools and beach front access, what more could you ask for?

    A walk along the boardwalk allows you to get exercise and people watch while checking out the scene.  You never know what you will stumble upon. There is something that will interest even the most discriminating travelers. The trolley is also a fun and unique way to get around at the beach. It has tons of stops for your convenience.

    To top off a fun day in the sun, nothing can beat a great meal, and Virginia Beach has plenty of options. For lunch, Taste Unlimited offers amazing sandwiches as well as other gourmet foods and unique gift baskets.  We couldn’t get enough of it, considering we went back every day! If you are interested in a restaurant for the night scene, Catch 31 is the place for you. Whether you go for drinks, appetizers, or a full meal, the energy at the restaurant is electric. Whatever time of day you go you will be guaranteed a good time.  The staff is friendly and attentive and willing to offer suggestions that will heighten your experience. Catch 31 features live music during the summer and cozy outdoor fire pits, so no matter what the season, they can always accommodate you.

    After all the amazing experiences I had there, I’m definitely planning another trip to Virginia Beach soon!

      I still miss Virginia Beach. It’s been 19 years since we moved away, but the big piece of my heart that I left behind is still there. A road trip to Virginia Beach sounds fabulous!
