Weekend in Cape Charles


Weekend in Cape Charles

I just returned from a girls weekend in Cape Charles on the Eastern Shore. Here is our trip recap, including a visit to the beach, lots of seafood, and strolls around the historic downtown.

My two friends, Hillary and Ellen, and I just returned from a nice girls weekend in Cape Charles!

Hillary and Ellen are my “Survivor Friends.” We love the show and have watched hours upon hours of it together. You might recall that five years ago we did a similar trip to Norfolk where we had a Survivor Retreat and watched a whole season together.

This time we didn’t have a season to watch (we’ve seen them all!), but we did weave Survivor themed activities into the weekend!

Destination: Cape Charles

We chose the coastal town of Cape Charles on the Eastern Shore for its proximity to Charlottesville (about a 3 hour drive) and charming downtown.

We all have followed the bloggers of Young House Love for years, and loved watching them renovate two houses in the town. And so we knew this would be the perfect spot for our trip!

If you’d like a great overview of Cape Charles or are considering a trip, check out John and Sherry’s Guide to Cape Charles. They lived there for a summer (before selling their rentals and moving to Florida!) and we used their post as a planner for our trip.

We rented a cute house a few blocks from the beach

Here’s the link on VRBO.

It was perfect for our weekend trip: great location, cute decor, 4 bedrooms (we had an extra one) and 3 full baths.

We drew rocks, Survivor style, to determine who got which bedroom.
