Favorite things about Virginia Beach

It is our FIRST vacation to VB, we love to see new places, Can you tell us what your favorite places to see and eat and things to do in the area? We will be there for 4 days. Not traveling with small kids (ours grew up) love seafood, will spend a couple hours a day at beach, like to see what is unique to the area.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions and feedback.

Sandbridge beach, about 20 -30 minutes south of the resort area for nice quiet beaches. Atlantic Avenue, for people watching and the 'boardwalk' feel. Never really have any must-do's when we go though because there always seems to be something new and interesting. Here's a good place to see what special may be going on during your visit. http://www.beachstreetusa.com/

Favorite place to eat: Tautogs for dinner; neighbor Doc Taylor's for breakfast

Favorite things- Beach Street nightly entertainment

Are you looking for sight-seeing activities? If so, you might like to go to nearby Norfolk and tour the Battleship Wisconsin moored at Nauticus (all-things water museum)

If the Tides are in town, catch a ball game at Harbor Park. Tides are part of the Orioles organization.

Visit the lighthouse at Cape Henry. It's gov't property so be prepared for an inspection of your purse, backpack, vehicle.

Ride the Rudee Rocket for a view of VB from the water.

Catch a show at the Sandler Center.

We enjoyed visiting the Cape Henry Lighthouses on Fort Story. They are located on a military base so be prepared to go through a security gate to enter.
