Virginia Beach - Day One

Virginia Beach. Sigh. What a wonderful place.

We arrived in Virginia Beach on Friday around 3:00 p.m. The weather was amazing when we arrived!

We were extremely pleased with our room. We stayed at the Fairfield Inn and booked an ocean front balcony suite. This is a hotel I highly recommend if you are considering a trip to Virginia Beach!

The view from our balcony was amazing!

We spent a majority of our trip, relaxing on the balcony. It was our own little piece of paradise for the long-weekend.

The balcony was shaded for most of the day, which was nice for when you still wanted to watch the waves, but wanted to stay out of the heat!

We were only a few blocks away from the fishing pier, which also had a great view!

We spent our first night roaming the town, taking pictures and trying to decide where we wanted to eat.

Of course, we spent some time on the beach that afternoon, as well.

In the picture above, the hotel in the background was ours. We were on the eighth floor, which definitely helped our view!

The water was too cold for us, but there were a few brave people who were swimming in it all day long!

Before we ordered dinner, we bought a 12 pack of bud light platinum to last us the weekend. We spent an hour drinking beer, watching the ocean, and watching people on the boardwalk below.

We ended up eating a pizza from a place called Albee's. Their pizza was phenomenal. Definitely order from there if you make a trip to Virginia Beach. A-maz-ing!

As the sun began to set, we went exploring the boardwalk some more. We heard music and followed it until we came across a band playing at the amphitheater. There was a Dairy Queen nearby, so we got ice cream cones and listened to the band for a while. It truly felt like summer this weekend!

We finished our ice cream cones as we walked along the beach, under the stars. This is something I've always wanted to do. It was so nice to walk barefoot on the beach while holding my husband's hand.

A night we will never forget.
