I am just starting to plan our 11 day visit in early August.
We love national parks and living history so Shenandoah and Williamsburg will be our bases. Whilst in the latter, I'm sure that my kids (13 & 9) would like to have a day at a beach. Every time I search 'beaches in Virginia' I end up with Virginia Beach.
Is that our best (only) option? My impression is that VB in summer will be crowded. We would be equally happy on a less popular beach.
Hope that TA members can give us some insights.
