The holidays in Virginia Beach are a mad, happy, dizzy whirl, with many things to enjoy! In addition to all the events we talked about in previous posts, we mustn’t forget about Busch Gardens Christmas Town. 

From now until January 5, the theme park is lavishly adorned with eight million lights for the season. When you factor in the festive beverages and food, as well as heart-warming shows and shopping, you get a wonderful place to spend the day. In addition, children can visit Santa at his North Pole workshop. Don’t leave without trying the park’s peppermint fudge hot chocolate.

Tickets for a 1-day admission range from $35 to $55 online. Hours are from noon to 10 p.m. The address is 1 Busch Gardens Boulevard.

Handel’s Messiah

Many people around the world don’t feel that Christmas is Christmas without attending a performance of Handel’s Messiah. The Scripture lyrics, set to majestically beautiful music scores, tell the story of Chirst’s birth, death, resurrection and triumphant return to Earth. On December 19, Regent University Theatre will present this masterpiece at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $25. The address is 1000 Regent University Drive.
