Moving from Las Vegas, NV, to Virginia Beach, VA

Virginia Beach: A slower pace with an ocean view 

Relocating from bustling Las Vegas, NV, to a more laid-back city like Virginia Beach, VA, you might expect some culture shock at first. But there are many reasons people are drawn to living in this resort city (population: 450,000) along the Atlantic Coast. Learn about Virginia Beach and what you can look forward to as a new resident. 

Explore Virginia Beach’s culture and natural beauty 

There’s no shortage of cool things to experience in Virginia Beach. One of its most popular attractions — the Virginia Beach Boardwalk — offers three miles of walking and biking paths, entertainment, restaurants, museums and a 26-foot-tall bronze statue of King Neptune. 

Other popular attractions to consider checking out include: 

  • Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge 
  • Cape Henry Lighthouse 
  • Virginia Beach Aquarium 
  • Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. Association for Research and Enlightenment 
  • Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art 
  • Thoroughgood House 

Discover the comfort of this mild coastal climate 

Get ready to trade desert heat for cool sea breezes and four seasons. Summer highs in VB average in the high 70s while winter lows drop into the low 40s, making it easy to enjoy the Hampton Roads area’s many outdoor activities for most of the year. But be aware that hurricane season runs from June through November and can bring tropical storms that produce gale-force winds and flooding in low-lying areas. 

Pursue a top-notch education at every level 

Virginia Beach schools are highly rated, both within the state and nationally. With over 50 elementary schools, 14 middle schools and 12 high schools in the district, there is a destination for every interest and discipline. 

Seeking post-secondary options? Virginia Beach is home to over 20 universities, trade schools and colleges — including the College of William & Mary, the second oldest college in the U.S. (founded in 1693) behind Harvard University.
