Trip Report - July 10th - July 17th

Had a wonderful time in VA... stayed in Sandbridge, rented a house from Siebert Realty, this is our 3rd year renting from Siebert and have always had a wonderful vacation experience, no complaints at all. The house was very nice, clean and had everything we needed and right across the street from the beach!!

Mostly we just hung out on the beach soaking up the sun and swimming. Went on the Dolphin Cruise one afternoon, saw a lot of dolphins, (picked up a coupon book at a 7-11 and they had coupons for $4.00 off per person, worth it if you have a large group.) There are also other coupons for dinner and a guide of things to do and places to eat. If you see one at a gas station or wherever, pick one up, its free!

We rented jet skis and went out on the back bay to ski, really quiet, we were the only ones out there had a blast! Went down to the "strip" boardwalk area of VA Beach to walk around and see some sights and shop a little. It was about a 30 minute drive from Sandbridge. Traffic was not bad at all, and found parking at the beach to be really easy, lots of spots to choose from.

First night we had pizza from Largo Mar (it was pretty good and they deliver to the Sandbridge area, had a hard time finding pizza places to deliver.

A couple other places we ate were: Captain George's Seafood Buffet and Baja Restaurant (lunch one day and take out for dinner another) very good and I would definitely go back again. The other nights we just cooked at home.

If anyone is staying in Sandbridge, and you are planning on going to Wal-Mart for groceries, you may not want to go Sat. evening, everything was pretty picked over and could not find a lot of things on our list, kind of expected it because it was so late and very busy, so just got what we could. We did go to Farm Fresh the next day and picked up some things. A little more expensive than Wal-mart, but worth it, no crowds! We were in and out... I mean who wants to spend their vacation in a grocery store? LOL

We did go to the Sandbridge Market a few times, and stopped and had frozen yogurt at Toni's... really good.

Overall we had a wonderful vacation, we love VA Beach/Sandbridge, the weather was beautiful and the beach was nice, clean and not crowded at all. It is our favorite vacation spot!

Hope to come back next year!!

So glad you had a great time as usual!! And ditto for pretty much any Walmart in Va Beach on saturday nite...try sunday morning if you can wait...they re-stock all night...couldn't PAY ME to go to a Walmart round here on a saturday...ugh...

So for those traveling here make note of that...if you're coming in on Sat...try to have what you need for that night and hit the Walmart early the next morning...weekends after noon are just Walmart hell...

But truly, Sandbridge is the place to have that old-fashioned idea of a beach-house-vacation-with-the-family...the kind where you comeback liking each other more, not plotting each others' deaths cause you tried to do waaay too much and are exhausted. So glad to hear another family has had one!
