First Landing State Park - Virginia Beach, VA
News & Press: Chesapeake Bay Gateways Network Expands with Nine New Virginia Sites - 03/06/2001
Bay Journal Article:

History, nature compete for attention during visit to First Landing State Park (May 2008) - I'm thinking hard about those first vulnerable colonists who sailed across the Atlantic in 1607 as I cross the 23-mile Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel. I struggle to keep our pick-up truck, laden with bicycles and sea kayaks in my designated lane as I keep stealing glances at the startlingly wide Bay and the 4-foot swells smashing against the pylons.
