There’s much more to Virginia Beach than its miles of beaches. Of course, a trip to the East Coast city without visiting one of those beaches might not seem right, but it’s just fine to venture outside of Chic’s Beach. Checking out the festivals in Virginia Beach, the most populated city in the state of Virginia, is one solid reason to dust the sand off your bottom. These Virginia Beach festivals give you the chance to see what else the city’s all about, whether it involves anime, strawberries, kites or music. Nearby Norfolk also has an assortment of festivals, which celebrate everything from Greek culture to beer.
