Explore fantastic historical sights surrounding Virginia Beach!

This is an area full of history – the Historic Triangle is about an hour away, and that’s where the first ships from England landed in “The New World.”

Head up to the Peninsula for a day or two to explore Jamestown Settlement, and internationally famous Colonial Williamsburg. But there’s also plenty of local history right here at the Beach – visit the homes of Adam Keeling and Francis Land. Take a Legends Walk and explore the local history firsthand with famous people—it’s a unique opportunity even for history buffs who think they’ve seen it all. Admire historic St. Luke’s Church, the oldest English-built church in America. You’ll be amazed at how much the area has to offer, old and new!

The Adam Thoroughgood House is a National Historic Landmark and is possibly the oldest surviving colonial home in Virginia Beach.
