Day 1 - Begin with a beach stroll.
PM: Start your nature quest with a stroll along the Boardwalk. Just a glance out to the expanse of the ocean, and it's easy to imagine the mysteries and giant creatures who call it home. After stepping into the Atlantic Wildfowl Heritage Museum and dropping by for "Shipwrecks and Ghost Lore" at the Old Coast Guard Station, head over to Black Angus Restaurant, a Virginia Beach icon for over 50 years.
Day 2 - Make a date with ocean creatures.
AM: Spend the morning immersing yourself in their world at the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center. Take in a movie at the 3D IMAX® Theater. Break for lunch at Jake's Smokehouse Bar-B-Que, or take advantage of the Aquarium's Osprey Café and marshfront picnic area.
PM: The afternoon takes you out on the ocean, aboard a 2-hour Winter Wildlife Seafari. Aquarium guides will show you the wonders of winter wildlife along our shores, as you anticipate the chance to catch sight of humpback or fin whales. After this brisk and exciting journey brings you back on land, travel to the Chesapeake Bay for a great dinner and view of the Bay at Lynnhaven Fish House.
Day 3 - Take time to reflect.
AM: After a satisfying breakfast at a local favorite, Mary's Restaurant, visit the Association for Research Enlightenment (A.R.E.), international headquarters for the late Edgar Cayce, whose dream interpretations and visionary thinking have inspired generations. Get some insight into your own dreams. Or spend some time in Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge, where you can explore 9,000 acres of pristine beach, woodland and marsh by hiking, seasonal tram or bike.
