Camping in Virginia Beach

Ending the school year brings both excitement and sadness for the kids.  Summer is also one of the best times to take the whole family camping.

Where is the best place for camping? Of course, you want a venue that can guarantee the safety of your children but at the same time will be an enjoyable place for them to explore.

Virginia Beach is a great destination that never gets boring. It keeps reinventing itself every year with more exciting times for the RV enthusiast.

Most if not all of the RV camps in Virginia Beach offer great packages including parks that come with swimming pools, bike rentals, mini golf, and planned activities.

They offer amp service for your RV, firewood for cooking, a gated community to keep out the unseemly, and quaint meeting rooms to get the whole family together.   They have also gone high-tech and offer modem dataports so you can stayed connected to the world if you want. 

If you like to get scared, head over to the boardwalk and check out the haunted houses. Their fun and are definitely worth going to at least once.

Don’t miss the Ocean Breeze — a water park as well as a go-cart course that is fun.

Rent a bike on the waterfront and watch the stress fade from your body.  Sit back and peddle your worries away as you breath in the fresh ocean air.

There is a great restaurant at the end of the boardwalk called the Lighthouse. This is a great seafood restaurant with decent drinks.

If you like deep-sea fishing, take a fishing excursion. There are boats that leave early in the morning or during the afternoon every day and most captains guarantee to get you a full cooler of fish by the end of the trip.

There are also two fishing piers in Virginia Beach where you can catch croakers, black bass, Blues, shark, and trout. If you don’t have fishing gear, one of the piers has a rental shop directly on the pier and they also sell bait.
