Virginia Beach is a popular coastal city in Virginia. Alongside the beach-lined oceanfront is a dazzling and entertaining 3-mile boardwalk. Just a few short miles away, the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center can be visited to view aquatic creatures year round for fun times with the family. Not only is this city full of fun and adventure, but a deep and rich history lies here. In 1607, the Jamestown colonists arrived from England at The Bayside First Landing State Park.
