  • Just recently in June I went to Virginia Beach with my three cousins, aunt, and my uncle. When we arrived there we went to our beach front hotel. We had a suite, so it made the stay nice! Well, the trip was very interesting, exciting, and memorable, one I won't forget. The first two days we were...
