Take the Plunge
This February, Virginia Beach is one super-cool place to be...and by cool we mean the arctic cold that can only come when you wade ankle-deep (or deeper) into the ice-cold Atlantic Ocean. It's all part of the Polar Plunge Winter Fest on February 7, a Virginia Beach annual event that brings locals and brave visitors to the beach to take a bone-chillling plunge (while raising funds for programming for children and adults with intellectual disabilities).
If water isn't your thing, you can lace up your running shoes for a Plunge 5K on February 7. Either way, you'll be joining locals and guests of Virginia Beach hotels as they raise money for a great cause – and get bragging rights to one cool trip to the beach.
