Even if it’s not the big leagues, every baseball fan knows that everyone has to start somewhere. For the Norfolk Tides, whose home field is Harbor Park at Norfolk, this is especially true. Harbor Park is a great place to catch a game, eat some traditional ballpark food (can anyone say hot dog?), and maybe enjoy a beer along with the spectacle.
Looking to get a tattoo while you’re down at the beach? The 2016 Virginia Beach Tattoo Festival is a weekend-long event held at the Virginia Beach Convention Center that might help with just that. The event runs 8/12 to 8/14 and goes all day long for the whole weekend. It’s the only time all year you’ll find artists from all over the state — and the country, even — gathered in one place and ready to do what they do best: tattoo.
Virginia Beach is well-known for its excellent fishing spots. Located at the intersection of the Chesapeake Bay, the Atlantic Ocean, and a variety of freshwater waterways, there’s definitely nothing to hold others from calling the area an “angler’s paradise.” Whether you’re into deep sea fishing or something a little closer to shore, the area has plenty of opportunities to reel in something big.
Americans love their coffee. If you’re looking for something a level above the usual Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts, Virginia Beach has plenty of options, many of them with a special flair you won’t find anywhere else.
What’s a hot summer’s day by the beach without some ice cream? Whether it’s the traditional cream-based goodness or frozen yogurt, Virginia Beach has plenty of places to indulge your sweet tooth and keep cool this summer.
Fireworks are a staple of Independence Day, but that doesn’t mean the celebrations have to stop when it’s over. If you’re going to miss the fireworks on the 4th, don’t fret about it too much – there are weekly fireworks displays running all summer! Subject to weather interruptions, they continue to run on a scheduled basis. So if you’re going to be at the shore after the 4th, there’s still plenty to see.
