A truly great getaway destination has to have one thing: proximity to lots of options for every taste! King’s Creek is about an hour north of Virginia Beach, the coastal city at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, where colonists from England arrived in 1607. This beautiful spot has miles of beaches and hundreds of fun things to do with friends and family… such as the Neptune Festival at Virginia Beach!
The Neptune Festival hosts dozens of events throughout the year, culminating in a spectacular celebration at the end of September. From concerts to wine and beer festivals, these exciting events are designed to bring people together to celebrate beach life.
If that sounds good to you, read on for upcoming events and get your tickets early to squeeze more beach visits into the end of your summer!
