From shipwrecks and pirates to ghosts and witches, Virginia Beach has its fair share of ghostly legends and lore. Join one of the costumed historians of the Old Coast Guard Station for “Shipwrecks & Ghost Lore,” revealing 90-minute evening strolls along the boardwalk, scheduled May 16 and May 30 at 7:30 pm (as well as twice weekly from June through August).

Tales of tragic shipwrecks, pirates who plundered the Virginia coast and other eerie anecdotes will keep you enthralled. If you’d prefer a daytime excursion minus the ghost stories, tag along on the “Wrecks & Rescues” guided walking tour of the historic Old Coast Guard Station, where more than 3,000 artifacts and images honor and preserve the history of Virginia’s maritime heritage. Either way, you’ll enjoy a glimpse into the history of one of the state’s favorite coastal communities, all just steps from our Virginia Beach boardwalk hotel.
