The holidays are over, but things to see and do in the area continue throughout the winter. The options include something for every age group.

Whale Watching

December to March is prime whale-watching time in the city, as these magnificent creatures of the sea make their migration to less frigid waters. Put on a warm jacket and go on an exciting excursion out into the ocean offered by the Virginia Beach Aquarium or Rudee Tours. In addition to various species of whales, you’re likely to glimpse dolphins, seals and porpoises. Staff members will help you spot all the interesting sights.

Bach to the Carnival Concert

Leave it to Symphonicity to come up with an entertaining concert for children. The performance, Bach to the Carnival, on January 11 will take the audience on a journey of sights and sounds relating to carnival fun. While the music starts at 3 p.m., be sure and arrive by 2 p.m. so the kids can enjoy the petting zoo and face painting.

Ticket prices range from $5 to $15. The location is the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts at 201 Market Street.

Visit a Spa

After the business of the holidays, consider taking a breather and indulging in a little pampering at one of the local spas. If you’ve never had a massage, you’ll find it’s an unbeatable way to relax.
