Virginia Beach, one of the most entertaining and relaxing places for student groups to go and enjoy a big senior trip, will treat your senior group right during this two-day getaway!
Breakfast at Citrus - Start your Virginia Beach adventure the right way: with a nutritious and delicious breakfast! Citrus Breakfast and Lunch is one of the most popular breakfasts and brunch spots in Virginia Beach, the creative and fresh menu full of healthy choices perfect for your group to start the day off with. The entire breakfast menu is made from scratch and focused on local sustainability, using only Coastal Virginia region farmers and producers. There is a reason locals call this the ‘freshest and best breakfast in all of Hampton Roads.’ Try the Shore Drive or Cape Henry, both with eggs, biscuits, and grits or hash browns and the latter choice with bacon, or perhaps go for the pièce de résistance, the Citrus Pancakes.
Virginia Aquarium - The Virginia Aquarium, or more formally the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center, is located right off of the Rudee Inlet, in Virginia Beach. This is certainly the perfect spot for excellent marine life diversity. Explore tanks of over 800,000 gallons full of vibrant animal life, the entire complex considered to be one of the best aquariums and animal habitats in the entire country. Enjoy plenty of fun hands-on exhibits, nature paths, and marshland adventures while here, as well as the always fun Adventure Park (next stop listed below), a zip-liner's paradise. Children will love the Smokey the Bear interaction, Mermaid Mondays, and Big Screen Saturdays, and everyone will enjoy the Sea Adventures, National Geographic 3D Theater, Big Science exhibits, and food and shopping opportunities within!
Virginia Adventure Park - One of the most unique and most exciting features of the Virginia Aquarium is Adventure Park, the aerial forest park located in the towering trees of the aquarium. Located between the Marsh Pavilion and Bay & Ocean Pavilion within the forest, this extreme adventure experience is the first of it’s kind in Virginia, offering some of the most fun bridges, aerial trails, and zip lines. One of our favorite things about Adventure Park is that you don’t have to be a pro or experienced in any way, children 5 and up can participate. This, in addition to the fact that this experience is based on ‘self-discovery trails’ for any skill level and adventure desire, makes this one of our top Virginia beach choices for field trips and senior trips alike.
Rudee Dolphin Cruise - With arguably the absolute best location Virginia Beach has to offer, Rudee Tours allow visitors to get up close and personal with dolphins using its wide array of sea-faring vessels that travel in and out of the Rudee Inlet. Located in the only inlet like it on the East Coast, boats such as the most popular Rudee Flipper will take you to the best dolphin sighting areas as close as 3 minutes away from its dock. During a tour, any aquatic aficionado or thrill-seeking vacationer can enjoy 90 minutes of narrated travel in which all of the seas experienced staff will answer any questions you may have about the boat, the area, or most importantly, the dolphins.
iFly - Have you always wanted to go skydiving but were too afraid of heights? No fear, iFly of is here to catch you with their fabulous and wildly popular indoor skydiving facility. Experience freefall without the danger of jumping out of an airplane in iFly's 1000 hp wind tunnel which creates a cushion of air on which you float the same as you would in traditional skydiving. No experience is necessary, anyone can enter and skydive in iFly's many programs from youngsters as little as three years old to advanced seniors 103 years young. The low-risk facility makes sure that your skydiving experience is a memory maker without the fear of falling to the earth below. Fly like a superhero, flip like an acrobat, and soar above the ground of the flight chamber like a pro!
Dave and Busters - Dave and Busters is a nationally popular food and gaming chain that provides a ‘sports-style setting’, American foods, and an interactive and video gaming arcade. Located within the Lynnhaven Mall, this spot is conveniently open from 11 am to 2 pm, groups typically spending a good 3 hours here for lunch or dinner.

Virginia Beach and Boardwalk - The thing about Virginia Beach is that you don’t need a bunch of extra attractions to make your trip a fabulous one. The beach itself has everything you need for fun in the sun, including its classic, beautiful boardwalk. On the beach, you’ll be able to enjoy all of your favorite sand and sun activities as well as surfing, swimming, and other water sports. If you haven’t been to the ocean before, you’re about to see what all the fuss is about. There’s nothing like a day in the waves. You can reach the sand from anywhere along the 3-mile Boardwalk – actually made of concrete. Perfect for walking and taking in the sites, the Boardwalk also rents bicycles built for 1, 2 – up to 6 people to help you tour this classic stretch of Virginia Beach. There are restaurants and activities along the boardwalk, including the Virginia Beach amusement park. Virginia Beach has it all.
