As the summer season begins to draw to a close, it’s the perfect time to plan a last-minute beach vacation to enjoy some cherished family time. Sunset Beach Hotel in Cape Charles, Virginia, is just the place. With a private beach and panoramic views of the water, family travelers can get in some great beach time in between the local attractions.
Situated on the eastern shore of Chesapeake Bay, Cape Charles has plenty of everything — fun, relaxation and charm. The calm waters of the bay are family-friendly, and there are plenty of ways to have fun off the beach with on-site playgrounds, two pools and live entertainment. In addition, the recently renovated rooms offer both accessible- and pet-friendly options.
Nearby, families can take in the town’s historic district, do some shopping or explore the local landscape at nearby Kiptopeke State Park, Savage Neck Dunes State Natural Area or Cape Charles Natural Area Preserve. These sites provide an up-close and personal look at the area’s natural beauty and are great places to observe local wildlife and stretch your legs with a hike. And don’t forget to schedule some time to visit Cape Charles Lighthouse, the tallest in the state and the second-tallest lighthouse in the country.
There are great offers to entice families to enjoy several nights at the resort, ranging from 10 percent off a three-night stay to 20 percent off a seven-night stay. Military, first responder and AAA discounts are also available to make sure this vacation destination is affordable for everyone.
