Growing up in the midwest and the southwest going to the beach was just something my family never did. But for Memorial Day weekend, me, my brother, sister-in-law, and 3 and half month old niece (cute as a button too) are heading down to Virginia Beach for a long weekend.

Now what exactly is there to do? I've checked some recent beach forecast and the water is still a pretty icy 58ºF... seems to cold to really do much playing in the water. Any suggestions as to what to do? Places worth checking out while in the Norfolk area? Or should I just invest in a good pale and shovel and stick to making sand castles?

I'd say stick to the sand castles. It has never failed before, and it won't fail you now. But don't get too excited and create a huge sculpture, 'coz it will be kicked to.. well. dust...

In the Norfolk area you can check out the aircraft carriers coming back to port.

And besides swimming, there are usually tons of put-put courses close to the beach.

Swimming is always fun. Although the water may be a little bit on the Nippy side  Laugh out loud . I've been to the Virginia Beach area a couple times but that was when I was young.

Swimming in the ocean isn't really fun unless you have a body board or somthing. Riding waves on your stomach gets old fast. Absoultely go have some real seafood, the kind that goes off the boat and into the resturant kitchen...

Oceana Naval Air Base is nearby so you can spot some Navy Jets...

If you get a chance, see if anyone is interested in taking the Cheasapeake Chunnel across to the peninsula of Virginia. I did that once with my family heading to Chincoteague, VA and Assateague Island for a vactaion. The chunnel has various spots where it surfaces and you can get out and you are on a man made island of huge boulders... There is a toll but its fun to drive for miles under the ocean/bay like that...You can say you did it!
