Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center

Things To Do in Virginia Beach

A trip to Virginia Beach should always include some time near the ocean, but you can also enjoy some other on-land activities in Virginia Beach, VA. Take a trip to the Aquarium & Marine Science Center, located just three miles from Sundial Inn, the aquarium is one of the most popular attractions in Virginia Beach.

AquariumThe Aquarium holds over 700 species and 12,000 animals—definitely enough to keep you occupied for an afternoon! Special highlights to look for during a visit include Sharks, Crocodiles, Seahorses and Kimono Dragons. The Aquarium also provides a home to endangered species like Loggerhead Turtles; they even have their own Light Tower Aquarium area, which features the largest-ever variety of sea turtle species together. There is also an IMAX theater on-site!

We also recommend stopping by the boardwalk—it’s right on the beach and can be a great supplement to your time on the sand. If you find yourself getting hungry or feel like spending the whole day outside, the three-mile concrete walk is fully stocked with all the shops and restaurants you need.

We recommend stopping by the Virginia Aquarium during your next trip to the Sundial Inn, one of the best VA Beach motels!
