There are so many events, museums, and sights to see around the Shore. That’s where the scavenger hunt can make it easy for you!

With more than 30 local partners, there’s an abundance of Shore discoveries waiting for you. 

But first, let’s start with the rules. (You’ll love them!)

Participants must visit 5 locations, including at least one festival, one museum, and one location to complete the hunt. 

Those who attend an event will get 5 extra entries into the raffle. The winner will receive a gift basket filled with merchandise from scavenger hunt business partners.

Get a hole punch at each of the events, museums, and drink locations you attend. For historic and outdoor sites, post a photo on either Facebook or Instagram and tag VisitESVA and Virginia is for Lovers. 

Be sure to use the hashtags #visitesva and #sharewhatyoulove. For birding locations, just take a picture of your favorite bird. Fun, huh?
