Friday Postcards from Virginia Beach, Virginia


Virginia Beach

I can’t believe summer is almost here. OK, well maybe not here in the next few days, but spring has sprung and I can smell summer on its way.

Last summer the boys and I headed south from Philadelphia to meet my husband in Norfolk, VA before spending a week with family in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Instead of rushing, and tackling a long drive by myself with the boys, I decided to stop for two nights in Virginia Beach. I must say, this was probably one of my more brilliant ideas. We had been with family for a few weeks; Virginia Beach was my alone time with my boys in between two big family visits, and a time for me to relax, soak up some sun, and do what I love most- explore somewhere new.

Two days was not long enough, but this won’t be our last visit. Virginia Beach is known as a family-friendly beach town with more than enough to keep parents and kids of all ages entertained. I only scratched the surface. Time to dive in a little deeper.

      Bit jealous you grew up on the Kohrs Brothers custard Brianna!

    That was an inspired decision to stay two days. Relaxing between visits is a real pick-me-up. Lovely Selfie 🙂

      Jan- Two days gave us just enough time to arrive, check out the scene and grab my husband on the third morning. It deserves more, but it was just the mini break I needed between visits!

    Brilliant idea indeed for some downtime. Love Virginia Beach and that boardwalk is great. What a great photo of the two of you!

      Mary I think the “mom selfie” is a necessity don’t you? I’m at the point that unless I take them myself, I am never in photos with my kids!

    Having a little down time between big family events is a great idea. Virginia Beach looks like a relaxing place to slow down the pace before the frenzy starts back up.

    Strange as it seems with as many times as I’ve been to the east coast and with all the family I have out there, I’ve never set foot on an east coast beach. Something I’ll have to remedy!

    You are the lucky one, we are still in early spring here! 🙂

    Virginia Beach sounds like a great place to visit – and having some downtime in between family stuff is always a good idea!

  • Nancie

    I’ve never been to Virginia Beach. It looks inviting.

  • Marisol@TravelingSolemates

    Sounds like a glorious, relaxing two days. I haven’t been to Virginia Beach. Looks lovely and really a good place for alone time. I hope you can go back soon and enjoy more of it. I’d like to follow myself.
