13 Feb A Travelogue on Virginia Beach
Vacationing during the summer is one of the most awaited fascinations of the year. In a country like USA there is no end to finding a scenic and tempting place to spend a holiday. The recent wonderful experience which I thoroughly enjoyed was of Virginia Beach. Picturesque and eventful, Virginia Beach is located on the Atlantic Ocean, at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay. With its awesome beach view, three-mile long boardwalk, and a variety of water activities, Virginia Beach allures almost three million tourists every year.
Choosing a comfortable hotel yet at a reasonable price was probably the first thought that came to my mind while planning for the vacation. In Virginia Beach, some of the best options for hotels that lured me were:
Barclay Cottage Bed and Breakfast, one of the only two Victorian cottages left in Virginia Beach, luxurious and comfortable.
Courtyard by Marriott Virginia Beach Oceanfront South gives you amazing ocean view, with a clean, luxurious environment.
The Capes Hotel, where you can enjoy private oceanfront balconies, indoor pools, deluxe rooms, and jacuzzi suites.
La Quinta Inn and Suites, Virginia Beach, comfortable stay with friendly staffs.
After several thoughts, I chose The Capes Hotel for all the luxuries they provide at an affordable cost. After settling down with a good hotel, my mind was set on the exciting variety of activities to be enjoyed in the city, the water activities being the most fascinating one. Rudee rocket, a seventy foot long yellow vessel, gives you a wild, wet, fun filled experience, taking you for a fantastic dolphin watch in the middle of the ocean. Rudee Inlet Jet Ski Rentals, where you can ride your way along the Virginia Beach ocean front on the one-two or three seated boats. You can enjoy the thrilling kite boarding and of course there are various attractive water parks. But the most amazing experience that I had, inspite of my husband’s constant and scary warnings, was of para sailing. The fun-filled, exciting take-off of the parachute followed by a breathtaking view of the Virginia coastline while flying high in the sky, was simply indescribable.
Virginia aquarium and marine science centre, which is a 800,000-gallon aquarium with sharks, harbor seals, and other live species, along with a number of its educational and enticing programmes, makes a perfect place to hang out both for children and for adults.
Vacationing without good food is inconceivable. Some of the best options would be Pulcinella Italian Restaurant for excellent pizza, Timbuktu for American and seafood, Neighbor’s Pizzeria for pizza again and La Herradura for great Mexican food. Exclusively for seafood, you can always try Steinhilber’s Thalia Acres Inn, Coastal Grill, and Hot Tuna Bar and Grill, where the fish is fresh and the dishes are consistently superb.
Virginia Beach, with all its fantastic stay, great food, captivating view, and exciting activities, can really be your next great holiday destination.
