Virginia Beach State Parks
Virginia Beach is home to two very nice state parks. The parks are perfect for exploring all that Virginia Beach has to offer, from beaches to wildlife.
Experience the history of First Landing State Park and walk where pirates, Indians, and colonists have tread before. The park is the sight where the first English colonists landed in 1607. Beyond being the first landing site, the park even plays into the Legend of Blackbeard the pirate as a place where he hid.
For a couple wishing to visit a park that is a little more off the beaten path, False Cape State Park is the park for you. It is “one of the last remaining undeveloped areas along the Atlantic coast”. “The park offers an opportunity to experience nature in a unique, primitive setting.” “The park is accessible only by foot, bicycle, beach transport, tram or boat.” The park is sure to be a great secluded romantic getaway.

There are many things to do in Virginia beach, but there are a few things that I suggest that are sure to be unique date opportunities. Check out the amusement park together. Take a hike to the lighthouse. And last but not least, to beat the heat, visit the waterpark together. If, as a couple, you are looking for an equally adventurous experience, but a less active date, try visiting one of the many antique stores or specialty shops in the area and bring home a momento of your trip. Some of the shops that we recommend include: Red Door Antiques, Raymond’s Antiques, The Creative Wedge: An Artisan Market, and Nectar.
