How to Enjoy Virginia Beach in the Fall

Fall is a great time to visit Virginia Beach. The crowds have left, the beaches are quiet, and the sand is still warm enough to go barefoot. We think it is one of the best times to visit, sostart planning your trip today and read how you can enjoy Virginia Beach in the fall.

Explore our waterways

Hop inside a kayak or canoe and explore our many waterways, inlets, bays, and rivers that line our coastal area. Enjoy the cooler weather while taking in the sights of fall that surround you on the water.

Sip on some seasonal brews

Local breweries are always whipping up some new seasonal brews for the fall, so this is a perfect time to sample. Head to Back Bay Brewing or Pleasure House Brewery, just to name a few. For a full list of the Virginia Beach Beer Trail see here.

Hang out in the trees

Explore new heights and spend some time amongst the trees with the Adventure Park at the Virginia Aquarium. What better way to enjoy the season’s colorful trees than to be up in them?

Order some oysters

‘Tis the season for oysters! Enjoy these slippery suckers at one of Virginia Beach’s local restaurants or head out on the Lynnhaven River for an oyster-farm boat tour with Captain Chris and Pleasure House Oysters.

Choose from many festivals

The festivals don’t stop with the end of summer at Virginia Beach. With events like the Neptune Festival, International Sand Sculpting event, Virginia Beach Wine Festival, and the Virginia Beach Craft Beer Festival there is no shortage of activities to choose from. For a full list visit

Sample seasonal produce

Now is the time of year to stop in at Pungo farm and sample some local produce. This 23,000 acres of farmland provides picturesque rural scenes that feel like a world of difference from the lively beachfront. Take the opportunity to pick your own bushel of fresh berries, produce or even a basket of flowers.

Get outdoors

Enjoy the local parks with the cooler weather and the colors of the season in full bloom. Visits to First Landing State Park, False Cape State Park, and Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge are all great options for enjoying Virginia Beach in the fall.

Stay at the Sundial Inn

When planning your trip to Virginia Beach look no further than the Sundial Inn for one of the best locations, just steps away from the boardwalk and the beach. Enjoy Virginia Beach in the fall with our family-friendly lodging and book your stay at the Sundial Inn!
