Every year, local artists come to Virginia Beach to put their artwork on display for the Boardwalk Art Show hosted by the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art. Typically, this 65-year tradition is held in June, but, due to COVID-19, it was held in October.  There is no word on when the 2022 show will be held, so keep an eye out!

Ranked as a Top 15 Fine Art Show of the Decade by Sunshine Artist Magazine, the festival runs for three days and welcomes nearly 200 artists from around the country. Featured art includes ceramics, photography, sculpture and glassworks.

While exploring the show, stop by the family park, featuring games, live music and entertainment, face painting and more activities for the kids to enjoy. For adults, tickets to the VIP Beach Club section can be purchased for delicious food from local restaurant Steinhilber’s and yummy cocktails by Tito’s Handmade Vodka and local Tarnished Truth Distilling Co.’sbourbon whiskey. Guests can enjoy live music, lounge seating, games and more.

 

The show spans 10 blocks of the boardwalk, so take your time walking through to make sure you see all the beautiful art. If you are visiting from out of town and have other destinations to visit, block out about half of your day for the art show.

Eco-Friendly Stocking Stuffers

Arguably the best part of Christmas morning is opening the contents of your stocking. Gifts in these sacks are usually items  you need regularly, from toothbrushes to hand sanitizer, gift cards and warm fuzzy socks. Consider these eco-friendly products to help make the world a better place.

A Suite Ride at The Peninsula Beverly Hills

The Peninsula Beverly Hills makes staying in a suite even sweeter! Guests who book one of the hotel’s elegant suites are offered complimentary use of a luxury BMW for the length of their stay. While Beverly Hills has so much to offer, having a car gives you the freedom to see even more of Southern California, whether it is driving up the Pacific Coast Highway to Malibu, or continuing on, past Santa Barbara, to Santa Ynez wine country.
