Day 1 - Responsible choices
PM: Arrive at a Virginia Beach "Virginia Green" hotel, knowing that it meets the state's stringent standards for reducing environmental impact. Visit the Farmers Market and local produce stands in Pungo. Seasonal craft fairs abound, and a visit to the Heritage Store offers a wide variety of organic choices. Enjoy local coastal cuisine centered on fresh produce and delicious seafood at Croc's 19th Street Bistro, one of many restaurants committed to green practices. Ask for their list of organic wines.
Day 2 - Do some good with your day
AM: Following breakfast, head out for a volunteer stint, joining our One Beach One World, making a difference in the community.
PM: After lunch at Rockafellers, another green restaurant featuring home grown ingredients, spend the afternoon on a Wild River Outfitters hiking, kayak or canoe tour, to immerse yourself in the ecosystem. Enjoy a dinner of freshly caught seafood and locally grown organic produce in the lively atmosphere of Hot Tuna Bar & Grill. Take a nighttime stroll along the Chesapeake Bay before heading back to your hotel.
Day 3 - Into the wild
AM: Enjoy a sunrise over the Atlantic, then spend the morning blueberry picking at False Cape State Park. Or explore local wildlife and waterfowl while hiking or paddling Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge with an expert guide. A visit to First Landing State Park will put you deep into forests adjacent to the site where the first English settlers landed in 1607. Wrap up your visit with a real connection to a time when living off the land was everyone's choice.
