IGUIVB was created by Paul West in late February of 2010 with the following vision which remains the same today:

"I Grew Up in Virginia Beach is about reconnecting with long lost friends and bringing back great memories of growing up in Virginia Beach.

"I Grew Up in Virginia Beach is a network of those who spent time in Virginia Beach - "back in the day" looking to "log" some of the history of those "youthful" days you enjoyed in Virginia Beach."

If you remember a place or an event, feel free to share it. You're welcome to create albums, or post photos individually. We do adhere to copyright laws, so if you post photos from the internet that don't belong to you, be sure to link to the source, and always give credit where credit is due.
