While enjoying the views of the beach from the board walk it is difficult to miss the large statue of Neptune located on 31st street, a titanic attraction standing guard over Neptune park. With the beach in the backdrop, and live music playing nearby, the park is a definite stopping point for photos and musical entertainment.
Paul DiPasquale creation, which was paid for with contributions gathered during Neptune Festivals, has been inviting onlookers since its dedication ceremony on September 30, 2005.
The large 34 foot statue does it’s best to avert the eyes , but after taking photos with friends and family try not to forget the about the live bands that play at Neptune Park along with daily cover bands playing for onlookers and guest of Hilton’s attached restaurant located next door.
If you are in Virginia Beach long enough, make sure to check out the Neptune Festival this summer as it kicks off its 35th year, attracting thousands of tourists and locals. The festival is spread across the entire summer calendar, ending with the Boardwalk Weekend the end of September.
Definitely not the only thing to do in Virginia Beach, a visit to Neptune Park should be on your things to do list this, and perhaps every year.
Location: 31st Street / Oceanfront - Right in front of the King Neptune Statue!
