Feb 1, 2013 - Fun times at Virginia Beach

A family beach vacation is always fun, and Virginia Beach is a great destination for that. With over 35 miles of beach and coastline, Virginia Beach is best traveled with a charter bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus chartered from Bus Charter Virginia. Let your friendly and reliable charter bus driver take care of the driving while you and your family travel in comfort and style to Virginia Beach in your fully equipped charter bus.

Located in the Hampton Roads area, Virginia Beach is a resort city with miles of beaches and hundreds of hotels, motels, and restaurants along its oceanfront that is easily visited with a charter bus. Every year the city hosts the East Coast Surfing Championships as well as the North American Sand Soccer Championship, a beach soccer tournament. It is also home to several state parks, several long-protected beach areas, three military bases, a number of large corporations, two universities, and numerous historic sites.

A favorite with charter bus visitors is the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center. With 800,000 gallons of aquariums and live animal habitats focusing on Virginia’s diverse and unique marine environment, this aquarium features more than 300 hands-on exhibits, a nature trail, an aviary, two animal touch pools and a 3D IMAX theater. Seasonal boat trips are available, allowing charter bus visitors to get close to dolphins, winter wildlife, or cruise the creeks near Virginia Beach.

Most everyone, including charter bus visitors, comes for the beaches in Virginia. Broadly separated into three main areas, the three beautiful beaches are free and always open to the public. For charter bus visitors looking for kinder, gentler waves, head down to the calm waters of the Chesapeake Bay beach, just off Shore Drive. From swimming to sand castles to volleyball, all the traditional family beach rituals are here. Further down the coast, the Virginia Beach Resort Area is easily reached by charter bus for those who appreciate a beach culture of live music, street performers, outdoor cafes, a bustling boardwalk and beautiful, sandy beaches that go on for miles. A 15 miles charter bus ride south of the Resort Area brings you to Sandbridge, a secluded beach hideaway with 5 miles of pristine sand dunes and dancing sea oats. It is a relaxing and peaceful community where you can truly slow down and unwind on your charter bus vacation. And for those who want to get closer to nature, the marshes and open waters of Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge and False Cape State Park provide kayaking, hiking, and fishing.
