Food Scene

Chix is a great place to catch a bite to eat on the nicely lit patio or listen to a local band performing outside platform stage. Good place for both food and nightlife. My favorite is the Tuna Steak Sandwich... great value and always delicious.

Another locals favorite and a must have on your to-do list. They are only open for breakfast and lunch and once again expect to wait for a table, but it will be worth it. My favorite dish is the Doc Conkwright's Cobb Omelet.

The Summer is flying by at the Virginia Beach Fishing Pier. While the Blue Crabs have been really plentiful this year, some nice fish are also being caught. Spanish Mackerel have been providing anglers with some good action most days, they are delicious table fare as well. Most of the knowledgeable fishermen target Spanish at first light and late afternoon and evening, don’t let that stop you from casting lures at other times. I have seen them caught in the middle of the day and even in the lights on the water at night. Gotcha Plugs, like those shown below, are good for many different species caught along the oceanfront.

For many years it was believed the house was built by Adam Thorowgood himself. Today, architectural historians agree the house was built circa 1719 by Adam’s great-grandson, Argall. Argall Thorowgood died in the midst of construction and his wife Susannah completed the work. Argall and Susannah’s son John later added the elements for which the house is known: its extensive wainscoting and paneling, as well as its dramatic turned staircase. Visit the Thoroughgood House to hear the great success story of Adam Thorowgood, one of Virginia’s first colonists. Learn about the house Argall and Susannah Thorowgood built and what makes it so extraordinary.

The historic Francis Land House was once surrounded by hundreds of acres of farmland. It served as the home of Francis Land VI, a wealthy plantation owner from a prominent family in Princess Anne County, Virginia. While the architecture of the house is Georgian, the interior style is Federal. The house is furnished with a mix of period antiques and reproductions to interpret the period that Francis Land VI and his wives and daughters were in residence, circa 1805-1819. Tours of the Francis Land House consider plantation life; the roles of the household members, both free and enslaved; Federal style; and ways that the formation of the new nation affected private lives.
