More About Flights to Virginia Beach

Getting to Virginia Beach

The closest airport is Norfolk International, about 12 miles away. While 31 airlines fly into the city, Delta, United Express, US Airways, and American Airlines are the largest carriers by volume. If you don't want rental car expenses, James River Transportation operates a shuttle that travels between the coastal cities and the airport at reasonable rates. Check the kiosk in the baggage claim area, or make reservations online. 

Timing Your Trip

The city's eclectic oceanfront culture is at its best from late May to early September, when the boardwalk bursts with festival-goers, beach bums, and surfers. Hotel rooms are scarce and prices skyrocket during peak season, but you can get cheap hotel rooms in April and early May, as well as late September. The water gets very cold quickly, though, so if swimming or surfing is on your itinerary, don't wait too long. 

Navigating Virginia Beach

The VB Wave trolley system runs through the heart of the city and along the Atlantic Avenue hotel zone, as well as to the Science Museum and Ocean Breeze Waterpark. Rides cost just $1.50, or you can buy an all-day pass; tickets are available at vending machines throughout the city, just look for the round trolley signs. The trolley also connects with the HRT bus line. 

Must-See Attractions

The three-mile boardwalk, the soul of the city, is full of interesting shops, restaurants, and people. For quiet beach outings, spend the day at Sandbridge Beach or First Landing State Park, and explore the wildlife sanctuaries and nature trails. Neptune Park, the oceanfront public space crowned with a massive statue of Neptune, is the site of free summer concerts and fun-filled festivals like the Boardwalk Art Show and Festival. Check out the East Coast Surfing Championship in August. The Virginia Aquarium, Military Aviation Museum, and Old Cape Henry Lighthouse are fascinating afternoon adventures.
