Virginia Beach has been called one of the country’s best places to visit for 2023 by travel magazine Condé Nast Traveler.

The city was included in an alphabetical list of 23 destinations that included the the likes of the U.S. Virgin Islands, Las Vegas, Boston, NoMad in Manhattan, and the Arts District in Los Angeles.

Some of what they had to say about Virginia Beach:

In 2023, the annual Coastal Edge East Coast Surfing Championships will celebrate its 61st year, and a few blocks from the oceanfront, groundbreaking will soon be underway at The Wave, a surf park backed by Grammy-winning artist and Virginia Beach native Pharrell Williams that will house the East Coast’s first man-made wave pool in 2024. Williams is also bringing the Something in the Water Festival back to Virginia Beach in spring 2023. The city is welcoming a new outdoor event, the Jackalope Fest, featuring high-adrenaline competitions ranging from breakdancing to bouldering. Held for the past ten years in Canada, the festival will now take place along the Virginia Beach Oceanfront in June.

The other two Mid-Atlantic locations included on the list were Charles Country in Southern Maryland and Wilmington, Delaware.

This comes a year after Forbes said something similar about the city, including it in a list of 22 cities to visit in 2022.
