First Landing State Park Beach

Pets are allowed in all Virginia State Parks. State regulations prohibit pets at designated swim areas and require pets to be confined or kept on a leash no longer than 6 feet and kept under supervision while in the park. Pets are also not allowed in public facilities (bathhouses, visitor centers, park offices, restaurants, etc.) While pets are allowed at False Cape State Park, they are not permitted access through Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge. To avoid potential inconvenience, we ask that you bring proof of current rabies vaccination. This is strongly recommended in Virginia Beach where a rabies alert is in effect. This massive historical park includes an authentic Indian village, 20 miles of walking trails, and a beach that's dog-friendly year round. The park is the site of the first landing of the Jamestown colonists in 1607. Now, as Virginia's most-visited state park, it's a natural oasis in Virginia Beach's urban oceanfront area. The park has 20 miles of trails and 1.5 miles of sandy Chesapeake Bay beach frontage. Offering many recreational and educational activities, it's a great place to explore unusual habitats featuring bald cypress trees, lagoons, rare plants and wildlife, and maritime forest ecology. Cabins, water and electric hook-up campsites, picnic areas, boat ramps and a camp store with bicycle rentals are also available.

This is Heaven

This photo was taken at First Landing State Park Beach in Virginia Beach, VA, US. Me and my dog I saved 4 years ago drove to Va Beach to rescue a paralyzed dog to rehabilitate. As much as Astraea loves the water we couldn't pass up taking her on her first beach trip. We loved it.
