DAY 1: A Beach Boys bash and more things to do in Virginia Beach

Tonight, it’s the Beach Boys Boardwalk Bash, so come in your colorful shirts and dresses, flip flops and sandals, sun glasses and beach hats. Enjoy a plated Beach Bum dinner, a healthy meal with a chicken entrée, vegetables and delicious dessert. After dinner the music of Still Surfin will invite you to a large dance floor as they play the best of the Beach Boys. Whether you dance or just watch, tonight is youthful nostalgia as you feel those good vibrations. You’ll be listening to such classics as “I Get Around, California Girls,” “Little Deuce Coupe” and “Surfer Girl.” It’s a night with a creative menu, a dance floor and a show band. Can you dig it?

The Virginia Military Aviation Museum features a wonderful collection of military aircraft from the beginning of aviation history.
