About Virginia Beach

Virginia Beach's position on the coast has made it a key port for centuries. In 1607, English explorers under Captain John Smith landed at Cape Henry, at the northern tip of modern day Virginia Beach. Cape Henry soon became an important destination for merchant ships traveling across the Atlantic ocean. It was also at Cape Henry where a lighthouse was constructed that would become the official symbol of Virginia Beach.

Modern day Virginia Beach began in 1880 with the building of a hotel on the Virginia coast. In 1883, a business was created to build a railroad from the busy port city of Norfolk to the ocean front. Railroad tracks ran from Norfolk inland to the The Princess Anne Hotel on the coast. This name would later be used for Princess Anne County, which became a small resort community.

After the Cavalier Hotel and the Virginia Beach Boardwalk were constructed in the 1920s, the city experienced extraordinary growth, not only as a resort city, but also as an industrial center. In 1963, Princess Anne County was annexed as part of Virginia Beach and Virginia Beach became a city of 125,000 people, growing from 1,600 to 172,800 acres. With more land for development, Virginia Beach exploded, surpassing Norfolk as the area's largest city.
