Virginia Beach Weather and Surf Conditions...

Looking for info on Virginia Beach weather, including temps, surf conditions, and the best time of year to visit?

Warm to hot summers (daytime temps range from low 70's to mid-80's) make for perfect beach vacations. Summer includes cool evenings, which makes for lovely, relaxing walks along the Boardwalk.

Though not as popular with tourists, off-season (especially fall and spring) can be a real treat. Lodging prices drop significantly, crowds decline, and cooler temperatures are just the ticket for golf and other outdoor activities, including the famous Virginia Beach Neptune Festival. 

The city of Virginia Beach boasts a very temperate climate--yet provides access to all four seasons.

In the fall, the weather contributes to the brilliant leaf displays along the James River--stunning golds and yellows, and vibrant reds--that make it a perfect time to visit the James River Plantations, about an hour and a half drive from the beach.


Other great places to view spectacular fall foliage include the Charlottesville area (home of Thomas Jefferson's Monticello and Michie Tavern) and the Shenandoah Valley leading up to Luray Caverns.

Winter at the beach boasts its own unique opportunities and events, including whale-watching season, and the annual Holiday Lights at the Beach.
