Beach & Baseball Hampton Roads Trip: June 16 - June 18


Beach & Baseball Hampton Roads Trip: June 16 - June 18


We are combining two of America's favorite summer pastimes with our beach and baseball combo trip. Spend all day Saturday relaxing in Virginia Beach, then enjoy a Norfolk Tides minor league baseball game on Sunday afternoon.


Virginia is for beach lovers. Virginia is for sports lovers. And if you love both the beach and some baseball? Well, Virginia might just be the option for you when you want to escape the metro. Join Torque Tours for a weekend in Southeast Virginia to hear the squawk of the seagull and the crack of the bat.

Included in the packages offered by Torque Tours:

  • Round-trip shared shuttle service from Washington, DC to our oceanfront hotel in Virginia Beach
  • Two continental breakfasts at the hotel and one group dinner at a Virginia Beach restaurant
  • Free use of bicycles provided by the hotel
  • Shuttle bus service between the hotel and Harbor Park, home of the Norfolk Tides, the AAA baseball affiliated of the Baltimore Orioles
  • Ticket to the Norfolk Tides vs. Louisville Bats baseball game on June 18th


Simple Itinerary (Subject to change; all activities except shuttle service and baseball game are optional)

We will depart Washington from Rhode Island Avenue station at 3:30 pm. Please do not arrive late. After a roadside stop for dinner, we anticipate arriving at our hotel around 9:00 pm. At settling into our hotel, we can enjoy the varied nightlife activities within a short walking distance of our hotel.

You are free to explore on your own Saturday. Most of us will enjoy the beach. Around dinnertime, we will meet at a predetermined restaurant for food and drinks. At night, the partiers in the group can spend another night out in Virginia Beach.

Early risers can spend one last morning on the beach. We will check out of our hotel at 11:00 am and board the shuttle to Norfolk for the baseball game. After an enjoyable afternoon of baseball, we will head home. We anticipate arriving back in Washington around 8:30 pm.



Are there ID or minimum age requirements for this trip?

Registrants under the age of 18 will either need to be accompanied by an adult or have a guardian sign a supplemental waiver prior to departure.

After 12:00 noon on June 9th, all sales for this trip are considered final. Missing the shuttle's departure is not considered a cause for a refund.

Any registrant that lists an age that fails to meet the minimum age requirement (15 years) will be notified and receive a refund. Registrants unable to prove their age during the initial ID check will not receive a refund.

The event may be canceled if fewer than three registrations are booked before 12:00 noon EDT on Friday, June 9th. In the event of a cancellation, notifications and refunds will be issued automatically. Shuttle services and all other benefits will be canceled when refunds are issued.

Is it alright if the name on my registration doesn't match the person who attends?

You are not required to attend under the name with which your registered. However, you must notify us of any changes in advance by sending us a message at If you transfer your reservation to another person, that person must meet the minimum age and ID requirement.


What happens if there is inclement weather?

If, prior to our scheduled departure, the National Weather Service issues a tropical storm warning, tropical storm watch, hurricane warning, hurricane watch, or coastal flood warning for the immediate area in and around Virginia Beach for a time period between 9:00 pm on Friday, June 16th and 11:00 am on Sunday, June 18th, Torque Travel will cancel the planned tour and provide the paid registrant with the option of rebooking the reservation on another tour of equal or lesser value and receive a credit for the difference. If the paying registrant opts to not rebook, she/he will receive a full refund of the charged tour. (Please note that a coastal flood watch is not considered a reason for cancellation of the trip.)

If the weather on Saturday, June 17th is deemed inappropriate for outdoor beach activities, optional shuttle service to the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center will be offered.

If the baseball game scheduled for Sunday, June 18th is postponed, cancelled, or has its start delayed for more than 1.5 hours for any reason, the baseball game benefit will be cancelled and each registrant on the tour will receive the option of a $18 coupon good for Torque Travel organized tours or whatever rights to ticket replacement is offered by the Norfolk Tides baseball team. Cancellation of the game may accelerate the anticipated return time.


What are the sleeping arrangements?

All registrants will have space to sleep in the hotel room. The specifics of sleeping arrangements will depend upon the exact number of people booked for the trip, but everyone should be prepared to potentially share a bed. Sleeping partners, if necessary, will be decided by the group at large. All shared beds would be queen sized. Single beds may be smaller.


Is there any way I can guarantee a bed or room to myself?

If you want to guarantee a single bed or room to yourself, you will need to purchase a single supplement. Please send an email to describing your request for a single supplement. Single beds and rooms may not always be available, so it is advantageous to make your request as early as possible. 


Where is the meeting location?

We will meet at Dunkin Donuts on Rhode Island Row, a short walk from the Rhode Island Avenue Metro Station.


Can I drive myself?

If you would like the freedom to use your own vehicle for this trip, you are welcome to, but you must inform us in advance. Use the discount code DRIVER15 when purchasing this trip to save $15 per person you register under the assumption that you and your guests will drive your own vehicle. Please note that you and your guests still must check in at the designated meeting location at 3:30 pm to receive driving directions and to sign a special release waiver. You are not guaranteed a designated parking space at the hotel and may need to find your own parking, especially if multiple customers take advantage of the driver discount.
