Virginia Beach Surf, Sand & Study

Bring Your Classroom to the Beach

While school will look a little different this year for many, the flexibility of distance learning provides opportunities to explore the world outside the classroom in a safe and effective manner. Here in Virginia Beach, we’ve partnered with many of our hotels and attractions to bring a little education to your vacation in an affordable and hassle-free way. From the profusion of waterways running through our coastal city and the biodiversity of the mighty Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean, to a unique history that predates the founding of our country, there is no shortage of educational opportunities and unforgettable fun to be had in Virginia Beach. With our arts scene, museums, rich history and unique coastal environment, Virginia Beach is the perfect place to spend some time this school year.
