The sun is out, and the beach is calling. It is time to explore all that the Atlantic Ocean has to offer. This summer, you should check out at least one of these southern beaches.
Virginia Beach, Virginia
Virginia Beach sits at the junction of the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. There is plenty to do on and offshore. Take a dolphin or whale watching trip, go paddleboarding, or go fishing on the pier. Off-shore, you can tour an oyster farm, sample local craft beers, or go indoor skydiving! There is never a dull moment and something for everyone in this coastal city.
Kitty Hawk, North Carolina
Just below Virginia Beach sits Kitty Hawk in the Outer Banks. Beachgoers will enjoy picturesque scenes. History lovers will appreciate the pioneering of the Wright Brothers’ successful flight. Adventure seekers will love the water sports and wind sports the area has to offer.
Charleston, South Carolina
A bit further down the coast sits Charleston. The waterside compliments a city built with southern charm. Cobblestone streets and antebellum architecture create an elegant feel. Spend the day soaking in the sun by the beach and your evening enjoying local seafood in the French Quarter.
Not only does Savannah hold quality local cuisine, stunning architecture, and friendly people, but also a deep, rich history. The beaches here offer 5 miles of white sand and glimmering blue water along with the Tybee Lighthouse for anyone willing to explore. Once you have gotten your fill, take in the shady oak trees sporting Spanish moss lining the streets of Forsyth Park. Test your bravery by taking a walking ghost tour and dive deeper into the history the city has to offer after the sun has gone down.
All of these beaches are a short drive from one another. As you get ready for your trip, add caring for your car to the to-do list. These hot summer temperatures can cause a ton of damage to your vehicle if you do not stay on top of maintenance. Try using some of our tips to build your checklist!
