Ahhh, Virginia Beach, one of the most gorgeous East Coast seaside cities.
This coastal city sits right where the Atlantic meets the Chesapeake Bay, providing a 3-mile boardwalk stretching along its massive beach-lined oceanfront. Not only is the city full of fun attractions and beach recreation options, but it also holds special historic value in that it was the spot of the 1607 Jamestown colonist arrival.
With so much to do and see, it may be hard for you travel photographer junkies (or tourist snapchatters) to know where exactly to get the best, most iconic photos during your visit.
These are the must-stop, most photographed, most beautiful spots in the city! Plan accordingly!
- Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge
Head to Back Bay for excellent shots of local wildlife, forest and beach scenes, and nature's beauty in general. You can't beat natural lighting!
- Neptune Statue
Perhaps the most popular attraction in all of Virginia Beach (besides, of course, the beach itself) is the bronze King Neptune statue. It is almost a necessity to come take a picture of this mythological god!
- The Beach
How can you come to Virginia Beach and not get a great shot of the beach? You can't, that's right!
- Cape Henry Lighthouse
George Washington commissioned this lighthouse at the VA base in 1772, making this one of the most historic, and photogenic spots in Virginia Beach.
- Virginia Aquarium
We personally find aquariums and zoos to be great spots to not only get good animal photos but its also always a good place to test out your close up skills, with so many tiny critters swimming around. This is also a great place for a classic family photo with the kids!
- Munden Point Park
Head out to one of Virginia Beach's gorgeous riverfront park and enjoy a moment of peace and tranquility. These are sometimes the best moments to capture those surprisingly great (and relaxing) photos.
- Chesapeake Bay Bridge and Tunnel
It's much easier to show you the complete picture when it comes to this absolutely fascinating bridge/tunnel, which would make a great snapshot from almost any angle or direction!
- The Boardwalk
Does this one need any further explanation? I mean, look at that!
