Originally built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, First Landing State Park is located by the Chesapeake Bay. The park, which is Virginias most visited state park, is nestled in Virginia Beach. First Landing offers boating, swimming, nature and history programs, hiking, biking, picnicking, a boat launch, cabins and 20 miles of trails on 2,888 acres. It also has campsites with water and electric hook-ups and nearby access to restrooms and showers. The park's name was changed in 1997 from Seashore State Park to First Landing State Park to reflect its heritage as the first place where members of the Virginia Company landed. They went on to settle Jamestown.

I like that it's a nice mixture of hills and flat areas. The small halls are super fun to run up and down ❤️

The best part was definitely the beginning. bring bug spray and water. All in all, it was just okay.

+ dogs can come!
- Midway gets a little boring, then picks back up at the end

Your hike will be a series of running away from bugs, mosquitos and crabs. Best when it's pouring rain! Super fun:)!

The hike was intended to be a "hike" but eventually turned into a game of tag via mosquitos. The crabs seemed to be running from something bigger than us we have yet to find out. Eventually down the beaten path we found a turtle... we got way to hype when we found it and took it with us... but after the countless hours of walking we soon hoped for a little rain to aid the bug bites... next thing we know the rain started pouring down and we had a wild run "with the turtle" back to the car. Meh mad decent hike!
