For the Families with Kids

Last Updated: Thursday, October 11, 2018 by Virginia Beach

Kids are a blessing and bringing them to Virginia Beach is sure to be a memorable experience for the whole family.  Virginia Beach loves kids and the oceanfront and surrounding area caters to kids and families!  Getting your kids out on the sand beach is great.. but there is so much more to do and see that you have to at least check out some of these recommended kids activities while you are here.  Your kids will thank you and who knows… you might even get a little break from non-stop parenting and get to enjoy watching your kids as they experience new things for the first time.  What a treat!

Blackbeard's Ghost has stolen the Lost Pearl's treasure and we must train the little scallywags on board to become pirates in order to get it back. There are skits, face painting, song and dance and games to practice pirating skills before taking the oath to become an official pirate. Our newly trained pirates are now ready to battle Blackbeard's Ghost with water cannons and retrieve the stolen treasure. All of this while traveling (1 hour and 15 minutes) in the open seas along the Virginia Beach Oceanfront as long as weather permits. If not, we be sailing in the Rudee Inlet. There is a snack bar on board for snacks (popcorn, pizza, hot dogs, ice cream) and drinks (water, sodas, juice) as we...... Read More
The Pocahontas Pancake House and Waffle Shop has been a fixture in Virginia Beach, Virginia for as long as anyone here can remember. Pocahontas Pancake and Waffle Shop was originally opened in 1974 by the Crisostomides family. In 1986 The Zervoudakis family, Mary, Angelo and George bought the restaurant and kept the Pocahontas name. Since that time there have been many changes made to the restaurant. We brought in local artist Jim Johnson to paint murals on the wall and windows and had an authentic Indian Tee Pee built inside. Our crew works hard to keep our restaurant in good condition, serve the best food possible and provide a family friendly atmosphere. In late August of 2002, the Food ...... Read More

Grommet Island Park is no regular beach park. In fact it is America’s first 100% handicap accessible park to make certain that every”BODY” can enjoy the beach. The inspiration for this state-of-the art park came from the personal struggles the Thompson family had regarding their son Josh Thompson. Josh a young surfer from Virginia Beach who in late 2006 at the age of 33 was diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. When his family went to the beach, Josh always stayed behind.
