Sunsets and Stargazing

via dcr.virginia.gov
What can you do in Virginia Beach on a chilly winter’s evening? Leave it to our fair city to offer interesting options, one of which is a sunset and stargazing tour at False Cape State Park. This enchanting escapade involves going to the best vantage spot for watching the grandeur of the nightly sun’s descent over the horizon. 

Once darkness descends, it’s the perfect place to admire the glittering starry hosts strewn across the black velvet sky. When the weather isn’t suitable for stargazing, your guide may take you on a forest hike to learn about local history and to look for owls.

Admission is $8 to $10. Hours are from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The address is 4001 Sandpiper Road. (Tour-goers meet at Back Bay National Refuge for transportation.)

DIY Workshops

Another activity option is to attend a DIY Workshop. On several nights a week, AR Workshops provides hands-on experience, when you can create something attractive or functional for your home. Project choices include wall hangings, canvas bags, lazy susans, wooden boxes and more. This is great fun for people who enjoy crafts.

Project prices range from around $38 to $66. The address is 313 Laskin Road, Ste. 101.
