Family Vacation?

A Virginia Beach family vacation has it all...

...fascinating, interpretive history sites even your kids will love, like Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown...

...world-class amusement parks like Busch Gardens Williamsburg (I've got promo codes, coupons, and discount ticket info!), Kings Dominion, and Water

Country USA and spectacular indoor water parks like Great Wolf Lodge Williamsburg.

...delicious yet inexpensive restaurants you can enjoy without breaking the bank...


I'll give you inside information to plan the perfect visit. I've discovered the hidden gems, local secrets, and up-to-date deals that the big travel guides miss.

I spend hours every week at Virginia Beach Family Fun looking for discount tickets, restaurant deals, cheap hotels, and other ways to save on a Virginia Beach family vacation...and I pass them on to you.

Whether you're vacationing with family or friends, planning a romantic weekend getaway, or just want a cheap family vacation, I'll show you:

  • My personal reviews (as in, my family has actually been there and we've given it a thumbs up or thumbs down) of what you shouldn't miss on your family vacation getaway.
  • Best Virginia Beach attractions-- like Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Kings Dominion, Water Country USA, Great Wolf Lodge, Colonial Williamsburg, and Luray Caverns-- to make your trip one to remember. Plus, spots for "kid-less" fun. For example, what museum do my kids love to "crash and burn at? What are our favorite "touchy-feely" attractions? (See my "Attractions" tab on the left.)
  • Secrets for finding discount travel deals to save you money on attractions, hotels, restaurants, and gas on your Virginia Beach family vacation. (Click on my Discount Travel Deals.)
  • Surf's up! Virginia Beach has some of the best swimming and surfing spots on the Atlantic seaboard. I have the up-to-the-minute weather forecast and surf conditions.

History sites your entire family can enjoy--no more "Ugh, not another museum, Mom!" I've checked out the sights and found the best places to visit...and what to skip (see my "Colonial Williamsburg" tab).
