THESE Are the Best Cities in the (757) for Your Vax-Cation!


Summer is here, and after being cooped up in the house for a year and a half, we’re all itching to get away! So if you’re vaxxed, waxed, and ready to skip outta town, check out this list of the top ten “Vax-Cation” destinations in America:

1 San Francisco, CA
2 Portland, OR
3 Providence, RI
4 Garden Grove, CA
5 Washington, DC
6 Honolulu, HI
7 Jersey City, NJ
8 Seattle, WA
9 Las Vegas, NV
10 New Orleans, LA


That’s from new research by LawnStarter, compiling data about each city’s vacation scene, vaccination rates (so you can travel safely), lodging costs, and tourist attractions.

But what if you don’t want to leave the (757) to go exploring? Or what if you want to recommend a Hampton Roads hotspot to one of your out-of-town friends?

These are the best vax-cation spots in the Seven Cities:

Norfolk topped the list locally, checking in at 111st overall, and that was followed by VA Beach at 130th. So, not exactly a vacation haven (must the expensive-ness or maybe the vax rates?), which might come as a surprise. After all, aren’t we a Spring Break Mecca?

Well, regardless, Newport News popped up at 153rd, and Chesapeake rounded out the rankings at 166th.

Guess if you’re searching for a local spot to do some relaxing, you might want to start with either the Chrysler Museum or the Neon District! I mean, hey, those murals could make for some great summertime selfies.
