Pack your bags, grab your girls, and hit the road! It’s time for a girl’s weekend getaway. Whether you’re looking for art and culture, delicious drinks, or unique shops, there’s no better city to visit than Virginia Beach.

Here’s The Perfect Itinerary For A Weekend Visit To Virginia Beach

Day One: Friday

Afternoon: First things first, check into your oceanfront hotel on the iconic Virginia Beach boardwalk. Turn on some tunes, pour yourselves some drinks, and start getting ready to have the best weekend of your life.

Evening: After you and your ladies primp and polish, we recommend ordering an Uber and heading to The Town Center of Virginia Beach for dinner. The rustic interiors and a selection of large wines will surely make you feel like you’re in wine country. After dinner, take a stroll through the Town Center for some shopping.

Day Two: Saturday

Morning: Rise and shine and it’s yoga time. Lay out your mats and relax with a sunrise beach yoga session. Next, head straight to the Virginia Beach locals’ favourite – Doc Taylor’s Restaurant. Doc’s as the locals call it is the perfect place to grab a bloody mary or mimosa and chat. The wait is a little longer than most, so be sure to get there early.

Afternoon: Now that you’re fueled up and ready to go, head to Pleasure House Point (just a short drive away) for a scenic hike through the trails of the tidal wetlands. Be sure to grab your athleisure and a water bottle, you may break a sweat.

Evening: Are you ready for creative food and a casual atmosphere? Be sure to hit Eat: An American Bistro. With a plentiful food and drink menu, Eat is the perfect place for you and your squad. Close your tabs and move right along. It’s time to sip on an orange crush (VB’s original drink). Call an Uber and head to The Shack on the 8th. Do you love to play games while drinking with your girls? If yes, The Shack is the perfect place for your tribe. The Shack is an all-outdoor bar that offers games galore including Giant Jenga, Bocce Ball, Connect Four, Giant Beer Pong, and more.

Late Night: If you don’t go dancing with your crew, is it really a girl’s night? We don’t think so. Grab an Uber and head to LunaSea Key West Cafe. We recommend taking your drink outside and relaxing on the second-floor patio. Don’t forget to hit the dance floor upstairs so you can get your groove on with your ladies.

Day Three: Sunday

Morning: Good morning, it’s time to grub out. Hop in the car and head to Citrus. Every breakfast item at Citrus is made from scratch so you know it will be delicious.

Afternoon: Before you head home, make a pit stop at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art and check out their current exhibitions. The MOCA is one of the most Instagrammable places in Virginia Beach so make sure you take advantage of the photo ops.

Hope you enjoyed your girl’s weekend getaway and wish you a safe trip home and happy travels!
