Romantic Things To Do In Virginia Beach

Are you looking for some romantic things to do in Virginia Beach this weekend? Perhaps you're thinking of a nice, romantic get-away for the two of you? Are you looking to re-kindle and re-stoke your heart's fiery desire? If so, we have some great recommendations!

Picnic for Two

Pack a picnic basket with chilled champagne, bring some strawberries dipped in chocolate, some crackers and cheese, and other favorite finger foods, bring some big towels or blankets for spreading on the sand, and take your sweetheart for a romantic supper on the Atlantic shore. Visit Sandbridge Beach for more seclusion as you enjoy that beach’s pristine waters.

Long Walk on the Beach

Too cliche? Never! Everyone does enjoy a long romantic walk on the beach... especially on Virginia Beach! Take a stroll on the Virginia Beach Boardwalk (make sure you hold hands... wink wink!) You may want to walk near the 2100 block of Atlantic Avenue as the three-mile stretch of boardwalk near there has been renovated recently and gives you and your love a great variety of cafes, shops, entertainment, and restaurants. Watch the ocean change colors as the sun sets behind you. If you’re lucky, you can watch the moon rise over the ocean and – if it’s not cloudy – cast moonbeams on the water.

Take an Art Tour

The Chrysler Museum of Art has some incredible art collections. You and your love will enjoy strolling through the museum’s galleries to find the pieces that speak to both of you (and you can explain to each other why they do so). The museum is known for its glass artwork collection, as well as an on-site glass studio where you can watch glass artists at work.

Enjoy the Beautiful Outdoors

The Hermitage Museum and Gardens offers you and your one and only the chance to stroll through 12 acres of gardens, woodlands and wetlands. It also provides an extensive collection of art in its gallery space. Take a tour of the 42-room Arts and Crafts-style home.

Learn about Romance in the Colonial Times

Whether you’ve been there countless times or you’ve never visited, a trip to Colonial Williamsburg and/or the Jamestown Settlement is a must-do for romance. Visit these living history sites and imagine together what it would have been like to court – or by courted by – our partner.

Get Cozy at a Bed and Breakfast

For romantic excursions of a longer length, consider renting a room for Friday and Saturday nights at one of Virginia Beach’s many bed and breakfasts. Whether you want to stay in a modern inn, a cozy cottage or a Victorian home, there’s sure to be a bed and breakfast that fits your budget.

Wake Up Together with an Oceanfront View

You also could stay in an oceanfront hotel such as the Comfort Inn & Suites. They are a great option for a quick romantic stay in Virginia Beach. You'll love their pricing, maybe as much as your partner!

Raise a Glass Together

Romance is incomplete without wine. Virginia boasts more than 80 wineries. Several are within a short drive of Virginia Beach (there are few spots throughout the entire state that aren’t but half an hour from at least one winery).

Relax and Enjoy the View

You’ll also want to be sure you check out the Cape Henry Lighthouses. Cape Henry saw its first lighthouse built in 1792 and its second, “new” lighthouse, built in 1881. The second lighthouse is open to the public and the views from its top are not to be missed.
