DW and 8yr old daughter are looking to go on a vacation the first week of July. Last year we had an opportunity to drive a class A from Florida and return home stopping at Mrytle Beach along the way. We had a great time and would like to do something similar. Driving to MB this year may prove to be slightly over budget in the Rig however I hear Virginia Beach is amazing (More to do?) and it's alot closer (save 12 hours round trip). My wife can't seem to find any campgrounds that are on a beach there like we found in South Carolina. Can anyone on here recomend or point us to one that perhaps she's not finding? Maybe a secret local park? It would be amazing if we could walk in flip flops or bare feet to the beach.
I'm wanting to go rving but my wife is pointing out we can drive our Jeep to South Carolina and stay in a condo for cheaper.. I'd rather not. Any suggestions? Much appreciated.
Holiday-L-Travl PArk is in VA Beach but still not quite on the beach. A very short drive and you are there. They are free parking at a lot for campers. I would not say Va Beach has more to do than Myrtle Beach though. We live in Va and prefer Myrtle over Va Beach.
We stayed at First Landing a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it. Our site was right next to the barrier. You could see the beach, but not allowed to cross, but you only had to walk a couple hundred feet to go on the boardwalk that lead down to the beach. We had no trouble getting in, but we were there during the week, not on Friday or Saturday. Very enjoyable watching the ships. Had a little museum. Don't think the area has as much to do as Myrtle Beach, but we enjoyed being there.
Thanks for the suggestions. looks like Assateague State Park has no services? First landing looks nice but I guess I'd need to call to see if they had availability. holiday-L-Travel seems like a great park, treed, even pools but 2 miles from the beach.. No toad (or rather hookup for toad) so bit of a hike in the heat. Not getting a good vibe on the whole VB thing.. Maybe I need to look elsewhere.
