Our group classes are held in Virginia Beach:
404 Investors Place, (once there, go to Suite 103).Coming from 264, take EXIT 17 A, the Independence/Princess Anne exit going toward Princess Anne. If the traffic is exceptionally light, you may be able to cut across the lanes in time to turn left at the Starbucks; otherwise, go past and make a U-turn. Then, you’ll be on Independence Boulevard, going toward Town Center, and you’ll turn right onto Investors Place, at the Starbucks (there’s a Golden Corral nearby as well). Then drive toward the big IBC sign and, in front of it, make a right turn. Immediately turn left, into the parking lot for a strip of offices: ours is 404, at the end on the right. P.A.W.S. (Pet Alternative Wellness Solutions) occupies suites 101 and 102; Playful Pups is in suite 103, so enter through that door.
