Our Rv Camping Near Virginia Beach Experience
We spent a week at the Holiday Trav-L Park during spring break. We split our time between enjoying what the park had to offer, and what the Boardwalk had to offer.
At the campground, we enjoyed relaxing and cooling off at one of the pools. In addition, we spent time playing miniature golf and enjoying a campfire in the evening.
While down at the Boardwalk we spent hours sitting on the beach enjoying the sun, and the ocean. There were plenty of places to grab a bite to eat or a quick snack, while down at the beach.
This was a great, and memorable trip. We highly recommend adding Virginia Beach to your list of places to visit. Whether you head down there in an RV or are looking for a place to set up your tent, we highly recommend the Holiday Trav-L Park
