Being a Tourist In: Virginia Beach

Hi everyone, thanks for coming back to my blog!  For the past week, I’ve been in Virginia Beach, VA on vacation with my family!  It’s been so nice being able to relax for a little while and I also get to do another “Being a Tourist In:…” post!  I hope you enjoy!

The first day of the trip was a cloudy one so we used that time to walk around and check out the area around the hotel.  This was my first time in Virginia Beach so I was really looking forward to seeing the area!  We stayed at the Hilton Oceanfront hotel that’s located in the more populated area of Virginia Beach so there were a ton of beachy boutiques and cafes that were just a short walk away!  At one of the boutiques, I ended up buying a thin gold bracelet cuff, which is something I’ve been looking for for a while so I was super excited about that!  We also walked the stretch of the boardwalk so we could get some pictures under the pier and it was one of my favorite areas we saw the whole trip!  To end off the night, we had dinner at the Beach Pub, which was only a ten minute drive from our hotel.  It was a little hole-in-the-wall seafood place that was just what we were in the mood for!

The next day was finally our first day of just relaxing.  We started the day off at the pool!  Because of the type of room we booked, we had access to the rooftop infinity pool (pictured to the left) and spent almost the entire day there!  It was beautiful out and the water felt great. After dinner at Chops, a beautiful restaurant located right across from our hotel, we took a walk on the beach and the sunset was gorgeous!

The third day was our last full day in Virginia Beach so we finally made our way down to the beach!  It was tremendously hot that day, so running into the ocean every twenty minutes or so was so refreshing!  Our hotel also provided beach chairs so that helped to keep us up off the hot sand!  After staying at the beach all day, we had dinner at Abbey Road, a really yummy Beatles tribute restaurant, and watched yet another beautiful sunset from the balcony of our room.  This day also happened to be a Wednesday and Virginia Beach does fireworks every Sunday and Wednesday, so we were lucky enough to be there for both rounds!

The next day was unfortunately the last day of the trip, so we woke up pretty early to start gathering everything to head home.  While this trip wasn’t the most eventful family vacation we’ve ever taken, I really, really enjoyed having time to relax and spend time with my family after a busy summer.

Thank you for reading and be sure to come back next week for a fun fashion post!
