5 River, Bay, And Lake Beaches In Virginia That’ll Make You Feel Like You’re At The Ocean
If you’re lucky enough to live along the coast of Virginia or the Eastern Shore, you’ll likely enjoy regular access to the ocean, crashing waves, and wide sandy beaches. Virginia Beach is undoubtedly one of the crown jewels of our state, yet it’s by no means the only beach that visitors enjoy. If you’re curious to experience some of Virginia’s non-ocean beaches, you won’t be disappointed by the sheer beauty of the Bay, riverbanks, and manmade beaches. Plus, these destinations tend to be far less crowded than their oceanfront counterparts. So load up your car with towels, water, and sunscreen, and prepare for an epic day at the beach when you visit any of these waterfront destinations!
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
