Shared by Rick, Virginia - My favorite vacation ideas was a family vacation we took to Virginia Beach, Virginia. We stayed there for a week at a Holiday Inn Sunspree Resort. The hotel was perfect.

We had a room with a door that opened right onto the beach. You could open the door and be on the beach in just a few steps so we enjoyed sitting out on the stoop of our room listening to the ocean and watching large ships cruise by. The hotel is at the very end of the beach so it is not crowded or very populated. There are numerous attractions that you can go to by riding a trolley.

We hardly drove the whole week. We just jumped on the trolley and went to eat, to play games, to shop, or to some beach activity that was going on for the day. We also rented bikes that we rode up and down the board walk.

That was really fun just riding up and down the board walk each evening enjoying the ocean or talking with other tourists that were on the boardwalk.

The whole trip was very reasonably priced and the number of activities and restaurants and attractions provided more than enough to do.
