The wildly-popular Family Great Adventure Series is all about Discovery and Entertainment at the Virginia Beach oceanfront!

On select nights during the season, families can take part in an interactive adventure that leads them to various sites along the boardwalk and Atlantic Avenue to unravel a mystery.  Sometimes the adventures involve games and contests right on the beach.  During each adventure, participants can dress up as characters, use “brain and brawn” to win the contest at hand, and settle into the sand for a family-friendly movie shown on a giant inflatable screen on the beach!  Each night is themed to the particular movie being shown!

All events are free and open to the public.
