Virginia Beach offers other amenities. Like to fish? The Oceanfront, as well as other areas, offers some sites in which to relax and enjoy your favorite pastime. For starters, The Chesapeake Bay Bridge is nearby. Considered a wonder of nature, that bridge has miles and miles of tunnel and narrow roads that comes across the Chesapeake Bay. Enjoy a view second to none as you travel through these roads. On the way, you can stop, have a good meal and enjoy great fishing, plus you can see other nice adjoining towns as you finish crossing the bridge.
