Hi VA Bloggers! My name is Aimee and I blog at Irresistible Pets and Irresistible Icing. I was born and raised and still live in Virginia Beach and couldn’t imagine living away from the water! I have a Chihuahua named Chuy that I love spending time with, especially at the beach. I put together a list of some of my favorite things to do with your dog in Virginia Beach!
Take a Stroll on the Boardwalk
Virginia Beach has been voted for having one of the best boardwalks in the country. We love going to the boardwalk for bike rides or just a relaxing walk. If your dog needs help with socialization, the boardwalk is perfect! There’s so many different types of people, sounds, and smells.
Play on the Beach
Chuy has been going to the beach since he was 9 weeks old! He loves running in the sand! After you walk along the boardwalk, be sure to let your dog check out the beach!
PS – Dogs aren’t allowed on the beach between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Boo! You can read the full policy from the city here.
Take a Pic by King Neptune!
The King Neptune statue has become iconic to Virginia Beach, so you have to snap a pic! I recommend getting a pic during the “off” season. Otherwise, Mr. Neptune is always surrounded by tourists during the summer. Chuy is in there somewhere lol.
Walk, Run, and Play at Mt. Trashmore
Mt. Trashmore was the first landfill park created in the entire world! Yes, that means it was created with trash! It rises over 60 feet high and you can see it from the interstate! The park itself has tons of trails, lakes, playgrounds, and even a skate park. Chuy and I often go after work to get in a nice long walk. He even loves running up the “mountain!”
