Change it Up This Fall - Virginia Beach Tourism

Change it up this fall. The cool season is settling into Virginia Beach this fall and with it comes a wonderful array of colorful events and attractions to enjoy. Rake in the fun as our shores come alive with kayak adventures, dolphin and whale watching tours, fishing excursions, unforgettable performances and everything else under the sun. So grab a light jacket and head to Virginia Beach for some change of scenery.

Now open, the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center's new multi-million dollar, 12,000 square foot renovation, Restless Planet: A journey across the planet that brings you closer to home. Through two paths over land and water, you'll be immersed in four diverse habitats like those that once thrived in Virginia, and now exist in more remote parts of the planet. It's an amazing journey populated by 6,000 new animals, including komodo dragons, exotic cobras, and adorable hedgehogs - just a few of the 367 species new to the Aquarium. Housed in some incredible environments, these rare and unpredictable creatures have much to teach us about the planet we share.
