Day 1: Travel to Virginia Beach and attend one of our nation’s greatest shows and spectacles, the International Tattoo. It is a spectacle of military splendor – part parade, part theatre and sometimes even part circus. The Tattoo features bands and military drill teams. This two-hour performance is an event that everyone will long remember. Prior to the show, we enjoy an included lunch. Following the conclusion of the show we check-in to our oceanfront hotel for our three-night stay. Enjoy the 3-mile Virginia Beach Boardwalk and dinner on your own. (L)
Day 2: We begin our day of touring with a visit to the Military Aviation Museum to view the largest collection of WWII military aircraft in the world. We enjoy a luncheon in the hangar of the museum with “swing time” entertainment. We later experience a Live Vintage Aircraft Air Show after lunch. Our final stop today is the Douglas MacArthur Memorial, where we learn more about this famous general and view a filmed biography of his life. Dinner will be included at a popular local restaurant. (B, L, D)
Day 3: We tour the Norfolk Naval Station this morning, the homeport to more than 80 ships of the Atlantic Fleet. View the aircraft carriers, cruisers and destroyers on this very informative 45-minute tour. We then tour Nauticus, an exciting science and technology center exploring the power of the sea. Enjoy the film, the battleship USS Wisconsin and the other attractions at this exciting museum. Enjoy lunch on your own and free time to explore the Waterside District Marketplace. This afternoon, we visit the popular Chrysler Museum of Art before boarding the Spirit of Norfolk to enjoy a delightful dinner cruise. (B, D)
Day 4: The morning is free to roam the boardwalk and beach before we visit the Norfolk Botanical Gardens. This 155- acre garden contains a large collection of azaleas, camellias and rhododendrons. Relax on a canal boat, a trackless train tour and 12 miles of pathways. We return home in the evening with fond memories of our Virginia Beach getaway. (B)
