The beach is cleaned daily and it shows. The boulevard is lined with hotels and condo's. Restarants and such are one street further inland. A few great statutes can be seen. Including inpressive navy monument.

Beautiful beaches have visited two times and have seen dolphins frolicking in the surf what a great view to wake up too as most hotel rooms face the beach. This time of year pet friendly and horse friendly. Splurged on the beach lounge chairs and umbrellas well worth the 41.00 for two chairs. Also, lots of musical entertainment up and... More

My family and I love going walking on the Boardwalk or to the shops near there. But we love going more when they have events and activities which brings so many different people out that makes the events 10x better. It's definitely a nice place to walk to run if you just want to exercise. And they have bikes that... More

The VA Beach boardwalk is all concrete. It is quite wide and the nice thing is there is a separate bike path next to it. There are concerts in the summer on the beach and at specific locations along the boardwalk. Most, if not all of the junk stores are 1 block off the boardwalk.

This three mile paved boardwalk is lined with highrise hotels and restaurants on one side and the beach on the other. There is a separate paved bike path parallel to the main boardwalk. All kinds of bikes can be rented alongside the boardwalk. Look for coupons for bike rentals in local flyers/magazines which you can pick up along the street.... More

I have been to the boardwalk several times over the years and now my daughter lives close to it. It is a great spot to have some fun family time. Bicycle rentals for one, two, or four are available. The beach is still close enough to leave periodically and go to the water to put your feet in. There are... More

Virginia Beach has upgraded the boardwalk and the surrounding area. A statue of Neptune is a centerpiece around which you can find all kinds of beach activity and rentals. The boardwalk is lined with hotels with an ocean view. Plenty of activities to choose from.

A brisk healthy walk, a slow relaxing walk...what have you. The Virginia Beach Boardwalk is the perfect place to just get away from it all if you so choose. Stop on your walk to experience the monuments and statues, a quick (or not so quick) cocktail or snack at one of the many Boardwalk/Oceanside establishments...or just sit on one of... More

Very neat part of this beach, encourages you to get off your bum and exercise! Great for strollers and usually friendly people.
