Holiday Weekends for the Fulltimer
I live and work in Virginia Beach, VA and this is one of the "close to home" vacation spots on the east coast.
Every Holiday Weekend I wish I'd planned further ahead, because any campground within a 100 mile radius will be packed - SARDINED - full.
I've tried to hide out in small city parks, out of the way state parks, and like most times - I've ended up in a parking lot behind the business my partner and I own. When I HAVE stayed in my regular campground it's a zoo, and everything else is worse. The worst of the worst EVER was "Bike Week" at Holiday Trav-L Park in Va Beach. You're parked so close to the next rig you can smell "cheesy feet" from their campfires and 5 minutes of quiet might happen between 3:00 and 4:00 AM.
Does anyone know a nice place within 300 miles where I can spend July 4? I enjoy company, but just a bit of open space and a less frenetic atmosphere (activities to keep the kiddies entertained instead of running around screaming at the tops of their lungs all day and half the night.)
Thanks in advance
Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.
