Whether it’s a week-long summer vacation or just a weekend getaway, time at Sandbridge beach is always looked forward to. The drive however can sometimes be trying. With the right preparation, a road trip with kids can be rather less miserable than expected, maybe even fun! From preparing the car to prepping activities, this post has you covered!
Sandbridge Beach is an angler’s haven. You can fish in saltwater in the morning and switch to freshwater in the afternoon, relax with a pole on the pier, cast from the surf, or take an all-day fishing charter offshore.
Whether you are an avid surfer or have always wanted to learn, Sandbridge Beach is a surfer’s dream. It has the same favorable conditions for surfing as Virginia Beach — without the crowds. For beginners, wide-open spaces mean you don’t have to fight for waves or run into other surfers, and you can get the basics down in relative privacy. Waves are also usually small — 2 to 4 feet on average — making it much safer for newbies to learn.
It wasn’t all that long ago that going on vacation meant purposefully being out of touch with day-to-day life for a while. Today smartphones, tablets, and ultra-portable laptops have changed the way we take a holiday.
You’re planning your beach vacation and you can’t help but want to bring your furry family members with you! After all, beaches and dogs seem to have an affinity for one another. Frolicking in the surf, romping through the sand and running full speed ahead are the makings of a perfect K-9, pet friendly afternoon.
The Outer Banks are stretches of peninsulas and barrier islands that run 200 miles along the coast of North Carolina and Virginia. The Outer Banks strand actually begins in Virginia with the 4.5-mile long Sandbridge Beach. Because Sandbridge Beach is backed by Currituck Sound to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, its geography is similar to that of the North Carolina Outer Banks. That similarity (and also cultural similarities) have earned Sandbridge Beach the nickname “The Outer Banks of Virginia.” For those who love the remote, untamed, and relaxed atmosphere of North Carolina’s Outer Banks, Sandbridge Beach is a must-see.
