Thanksgiving in Virginia Beach gives you the opportunity to dine out and be worry-free. We all know that Thanksgiving is typically spent at home, gobbling turkey and stuffing yourself at the dinner table while giving thanks for family and friends. However, there are downsides to this such as the added stress from shopping for different courses, hours of prep and cooking.  As a result, families decide to enjoy the holiday out on the town on occasion. Virginia Beach restaurants have great deals and tasty favorites on the menu to make your holiday great. Check out some of our favorites in the area and make your holiday plans today.
