The East Coast of the U.S. is a wonderful place in the spring. The fresh air, the flowers blooming and the feel of a new start all make the eastern United States a unique place to vacation. Of all destinations along the eastern seaboard, Virginia Beach, Virginia is one of the best. Not only can you experience the great outdoors but you will also find historical sites and ocean views that far outstrip many others. The sun just seems friendlier here! There is plenty of RV camping available too. Try North Shore Bay Campground for one spot where you can have it all – surfing, swimming and fishing.
On the cooler days you will love the hiking you’ll find in lovely False Cape State Park. The interior trails let you experience the beauty of the forest, while others take you through the marshes and along sandy shores. Back Bay offers kayaking or canoeing beyond compare. Of course, the climate is mild here year round. So you can go hiking anytime at all.
Visiting Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge gives you the opportunity to see some endangered species that many never see at all. Loggerhead sea turtles are a favorite and can be seen from May through August along the beaches. This entire refuge is along a strip of coastline that is home to many mammals and birds as well. Be sure to bring a camera so you can catch a shot of the sandpipers and sanderlings feeding along the shore.
Naturally the ocean holds a particular fascination to all visitors. Stroll along the Oceanfront Boardwalk for a party atmosphere and a lot of entertainment. Kids love the amusement rides available, and adults may want to see a show in the Cavalier Beach Club. Relax at any of the beaches and soak up the sun. The Atlantic Ocean seems to make sunrises so much better so you may want to get up early for one.
If you choose the North Shore Bay Campground for your home base, you will be right near the dunes at Sandbridge Beach. This is the perfect beach for the whole family to enjoy while in Virginia Beach. Chesapeake Bay Beach is another where locals and tourists flock to spread out a towel in the sand and catch some rays.
Of course, you may finally wish to add in some historical education while you are here. At the Cape Henry Memorial you’ll see where the first steps of the English colonists predicted our new free land. If you love lighthouses, you’ll love First Landing State Park where the lighthouse at Cape Henry is a must-see. Plenty of hiking trails in this park, if you haven’t yet tired of hiking.
Water activities are popular around Virginia Beach, with sailing, jet skiing, deep sea fishing and even treasure hunting. Lots of history, ocean views, entertainment and so much more exist right here. An RV adventure to this spot is bound to fill your years to come with wonderful memories to recall.
