I just got back from a 4 day beach trip to Virginia Beach. I live in Virginia and the beach is only about 3 hours away from our house which makes a long weekend trip worth it. We always go 3-4 days and this year we did a 4 day trip with my husband and my niece.
The weather was for the most part good. It has been raining non-stop here in Virginia and we got lucky to have to clean days on Saturday and Sunday. When we arrived Friday, we got soaked as it poured down rain as we were walking back to our hotel.
We spent most of Saturday on the beach and some of Sunday. The water was chilly but once you got in and were used to the chill, it was fine! My niece had never been to the beach before and she absolutely loved it. She didn't want to leave the beach and go do other things. She was all about the water.
Me personally, I prefer to sun bath and enjoy the sand instead of being in the water. I am pretty pasty white so any sun I can get without getting a burn is much needed.
This trip was a lot of fun. My only regret is that we were not there longer, I did not take nearly as many photos as I normally do either. I tried to disconnect a little bit from the internet and it was nice to not be worried about my phone 24/7. It was a good disconnect for a little bit. Yes, I did check stuff but I was not on my phone the entire time.
I recommend everyone to go to the beach for a 4 day trip. It is so much fun and you have a blast. I am planning a girls trip next!! Just another reason living close to the beach is amazing!
