Take the ViBe District Walking Tour OR Virtual Tour from Home

While we are being encouraged to engage in social distancing during this time, there’s nothing stopping you from getting out, getting a little fresh air, and seeing the beauty of the ViBe District murals. To see all of these murals by foot makes for an easy, one-mile walking tour, that is a must for all who are visiting.

TIPS:

  • Take a virtual tour around Virginia Beach’s cultural enclave—the ViBe Creative District by clicking on the map icons to find information about the artists, artworks and locations.
  • Click on each icon to see multiple images of the artwork AND VIDEO links of murals created during the last two years of the ViBe Mural Festival
  • This can be turned into a fun seek and find game for families too to talk about colors, shapes, animals, etc. found in the artworks
