Debbie's Perfect Day in Virginia Beach

Favorite Places To Eat: 

Breakfast: Debbie has never been much of a breakfast food person, but she usually just goes with the flow and orders a BLT wherever she ends up. Bay Local is at the top of her list of where she ends up for an excellent BLT!  She orders the Regular and adds avocado, but they have several versions to choose from. It's home to the Beach's largest BLT - try it if you dare!

Lunch: Tulu is an oceanfront favorite, Debbie loves the atmosphere, the views, and the outdoor seating. She likes to order the Turkey Burger or the Buffalo Cauliflower appetizer as her meal. It's also a great spot for cocktails when you prefer a liquid lunch!

Dinner: Eat - An American Bistro is hands-down her favorite dinner spot. There's no competition in her opinion. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu - the Iron-seared Filet and Mom's Crab Cake are two of Debbies favorites, but chef's nightly specials are her usual go-to! Whatever entree you decide, make sure to order a side of Balsamic Glazed Brussel Sprouts. Start with Potstickers and end with Chocolate Bouchons!

Midday: After strolling around the farmers market she likes to head out on the water! Her weekend is usually spent with family watching her kids wakeboard and tube on the Chesapeake Bay or docking her boat at the Narrows to enjoy and afternoon with friends. Like Debbie many locals have their own boat but, there are plenty of places to rent one if you like the experience a day on the water such as Bay Venture Boat Rentals
