    Exploring Virginia Beach

    If you’re looking to get out of your Virginia Beach vacation rental and spend a little time in the sun, First Landing State Park should be top of your wish list. This space is home to lagoons, rare plants, towering cypress trees, and hiking trails, which are a fantastic way to stay active and see a different side to the region. Guided ecological tours are offered and are definitely worth considering, while picnic areas let you stop a while to enjoy your surroundings.

    Virginia Beach’s signature sizzle

    When selecting a Virginia Beach vacation rental, be sure to consider the area’s climate and how it could affect what you’re after. Average temperatures fall to around 40°F during the coldest months of the year, so finding a spot near the beach might not be number one on your priority list. The summer sees averages peak at around 79°F, making it the perfect time to head close to the seaside or reserve a Virginia Beach vacation rental with a pool; Virginia’s humid subtropical climate also guarantees long days of sunshine during the hotter months.
