In just a ten-minute walk, you can be at the Virginia Beach Convention Center, the Contemporary Art Center, or at the marina where you can rent a jet ski, depart for parasailing or enjoy an exciting "Seafari" boat trip guided by experts from the Virginia Aquarium. There are even more outstanding locally owned restaurants which we can recommend.
