Wake to breathtaking sunrises, and enjoy activities all day including tours of Virginia Aquarium, a ropes course at Adventure Park, indoor skydiving at iFly Virginia Beach, fishing from the Virginia Beach Pier, or an easy family stroll along the Virginia Beach boardwalk or shoreline!
Of course, your safety comes first. Here are some safety tips when bringing your family on your Virginia Beach vacation.
Never swim alone. Swim near a lifeguard.
Ask a lifeguard about water conditions.
Red flags = dangerous water.
Know your swimming ability.
Stay close to shore.
Flotation devices are no substitute for swimming ability.
If caught in a rip current, swim parallel to shore.
Never leave children unattended.
Don't dive. Go feet first.
Avoid the water at night, dawn, or dusk, and avoid shiny jewelry or swimwear.
Body surfers should keep their arms in front to avoid injury.
