Don’t let getting out this summer break the bank.
Here’s a list of free things to do in Virginia Beach.
Go on a walking tour
The Virginian Legends Tour pays homage to native Virginians who have made major contributions to society.
Start the tour on 13th Street and follow the path to see plaques dedicated to honorees like Ella Fitzgerald and Thomas Jefferson.
If you’re into art but also like to be indoors, check out the Virginia Beach Art Center. It’s a common social and workplace whether you’re an art appreciator or creator.
Keep up with the ViBe District’s “First Friday” events on Facebook.
Go window shopping
Virginia Beach has multiple farmers markets right here in the city.
The Town Center even has free parking.
Listen to live music
The Sandler Center Outdoor Plaza hosts Ynot Wednesdays from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. throughout the summer. Check their schedule to see who’s playing.
Live! on Atlantic is another ongoing free entertainment event hosted right on the oceanfront every weekend.
And, last but not least…
Go to the Beach
Virginia Beach draws tourists from all over to its oceanfront every year and– they’re free!
Take a stroll on the 3-mile long boardwalk. Or, take a bike ride, skateboard, or rollerblade on the adjoining bike path.
Don’t forget to stop and see the massive 34-foot Neptune statue outside of Neptune’s Park located right off of the boardwalk.
If you’re in town the last weekend in September, you’ll also be able to catch the annual Neptune Festival Boardwalk event.
