Based on activities, hotel costs and airfare, Money magazine included Virginia Beach in their list of the top eight beaches to visit this summer. Alongside iconic beach destinations such as San Diego, CA, and Cape May, NJ, Virginia Beach is one of four East Coast beach destinations to make the 2019 cut. Located within a days’ drive from 2/3 of the country, our coastal city has a predominantly large drive market, however, reduced airfares coupled with more than 250 flights in and out of Norfolk make flying lucrative for the traveler looking to cut their travel time. Excerpt from the article: “Enjoying the surf on Virginia Beach’s classic coastline just got a little easier: the average cost of a flight into nearby Norfolk and Newport airports dropped nearly 13% between 2017 and 2018, according to Kayak. For loyal vacationers and newbies, that’s a welcome discount on access to the seaside city’s free three miles of sandy beaches — not to mention its 475 top-rated restaurants and nearly 80 high-ranking bars, according to Yelp.” Read the entire article here: http://money.com/money/5647551/best-beaches-in-america-2019/.
