Explore the African origins of today’s diversified music genres during FunkFest and the Blues at the Beach festival.

Beach Street

Beach Street U.S.A.: The oceanfront comes alive with special themed entertainment along the sidewalks of Atlantic Avenue from 17th to 25th Streets nightly during the summer months. During Beach Street U.S.A., puppets, bands, jugglers, magicians and others entertain crowds right on the sidewalks. Free live concerts and theatrical productions take place seven nights a week along the oceanfront.

beach

Enjoy the Beaches: With 14 miles of open, public beaches – with NO fees – Virginia Beach offers a variety of unique beaches to fit every mood. The newly-landscaped Virginia Beach resort area features live music, street performers, diverse festivals, as well as outdoor cafes and nightlife. If your idea of a "day at the beach" is more relaxed, visit Chesapeake Beach (known to the locals as "Chick’s Beach") for a more tranquil spot along the scenic Chesapeake Bay. Swimmers will enjoy the bay's protected shallow waters. For a more secluded environment, the Sandbridge area on Virginia Beach's southern shore is perfect. The pristine shores of Sandbridge are secluded, quiet and just 20 minutes from the main resort area. Just breathtaking ocean-view rental homes, condominiums and peacefulness fill the Sandbridge shoreline. Sand sweeps from the shore, the traffic is less and seagulls leave long-lasting footprints.
