via The Nature Bus

It’s fun to explore on your own, but sometimes it’s relaxing to book a tour and leave the driving to someone else. Nature Bus is a local company that provides a variety of delightful excursions to see the local sights. One option is a tour of Virginia Beach narrated by a historian that includes a trip to the Cape Henry Lighthouse. Another choice is the Green Places Tour, which will take you to the state’s largest botanical garden.

Treasures of the Earth Gem, Mineral and Jewelry Show

While our planet is filled with beauty above ground, so also it’s rich in dazzling splendor underground. Treasures of the Earth include gleaming gold and silver, as well as an extensive menagerie of glittering jewels. Anyone interested in such things will enjoy attending the Gem, Mineral and Jewelry Show on July 18 to 21. You’re sure to see unusual items such as estate and handmade jewelry. The event will offer jewelers who can remount stones and a gemologist who can do appraisals.

Admission is $5 for adults and free for children. Hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The location is the Virginia Beach Convention Center at 1000 19thStreet.
