On the Sunday Winter Tram Tour, about 25 companions join you on each tram. It cost about $8 and has narrations during the 1-mile hike and the entire tram voyage to within 2 miles of the NC border. I had a brother-in-law and he was...More
This is a bit longer drive from the Virginia Beach boardwalk area than say, First Landing, but it is also a bit more novel in my opinion. Dunes, great wide beaches -- one of the highlights of my trip to the Virginia Beach.
No vehicles are permitted. This park is located in southern Virginia Beach, just past Little Island park- right after Sanbridge area of the beach. False Cape State Park is a mile-wide barrier spit between Back Bay and the Atlantic Ocean that must be accessed by...More

False Cape State Park is a way to explore nature in the City of Virginia Beach. I always bike into the park, but visitors can also boat in or hike in. I go many times a year. I always see something relating to nature from...More

Is your plan to take the tram in and then hike around? I'd say that is doable. But if you are talking about walking from the Refuge to the park, I wouldn't recommend it unless you have done a ten mile round trip hike in the... More
Is your plan to take the tram in and then hike around? I'd say that is doable. But if you are talking about walking from the Refuge to the park, I wouldn't recommend it unless you have done a ten mile round trip hike in the past. It is 5 miles from the parking lot at the refuge to our park.

We did not see a single snake in the two days we visited. However, a fellow traveler had a video of one but He told us they stay away from humans.
We just need to pay attention to where we are walking.
Have a great day!
