Food Scene
One of our favorites! Great local restaurant for breakfast but try to be there before 9AM to beat the crowd. I recommend crossing the street to the boardwalk after breakfast to visit the Neptune statue.

If you love donuts or pastries, you MUST stop by Duck Donuts, originated from Duck, North Carolina. Kids (and I) love watching the donuts made and come down the assembly. Fresh and delicious all the time. It's also right by the Starbucks right next to a public garage though it's walking distance from the condo.

Drinks & Nightlife
I recommend sitting outside around the fire pits and take in the activity by Neptune park where there are usually live performances during the summer. There are also some big white rocking chairs (if you can get a seat) to watch the sunset/sunrise.

Parks & Nature
Great place if you like to hike or have a little bit of quiet with nature. There is usually a $5 fee to get in at the gate. There are two entrances for the park side and one for the beach. There are limited bike trails as well. TIP: Pack bug repellent in the summer. http://www.dcr.virginia.gov/state-parks/first-landing#general_information

My daughter and I love the dolphin and whale tours. There is nothing like seeing animals free and in their natural environment. There are several tours a day. You can sometimes find coupons online. Their boat staff work for tips so may want to make sure you have some cash for that. https://www.rudeetours.com/ NOTE: The VB Aquarium also does boat tours

A short drive to one of my favorite grocers - they have some quick prepped foods if you don't feel like cooking or eating out, and always great service. Kids can look for Maki the turtle for a prize. It's a short distance for the better known Whole Foods
