How can you not come here if you're anywhere near the Virginia Beach oceanfront? The Virginia Beach boardwalk stretches for several kilometres, and provides ample walking distance. An adjacent bike path is also available for casual riders (fitter riders, wishing to go faster, with less risk, will likely prefer cruising up and down Atlantic or Pacific Aves). On a hot,... More

Being able to look out at the water is so relaxing and peaceful. I love watch the boats go by. People walking on the boardwalk.

My preferred beach. I visit Virginia Beach each and every time I am in the area, summer, winter, spring or fall. There is always interesting featured attractions for entertainment. So relaxing as well as enjoyable.

Don't wear your swimsuit to the beach in December, but do don some comfortable shoes and a sweater or sweatshirt. Walk the boardwalk. Enjoy the holiday lights and the off season prices! Bonus- The boardwalk is an active Pokemon Go site!

My two daughters took me to the beach for a long weekend. The Board Walk has so much to offer. I do recommend the Horse Back riding but that is only done during off season.

Even though I was dressed in a down coat, long johns, hat and mittens (It was 50 degrees) there were people swimming...or rather running in, getting wet and running out. The Christmas lights for a long way on the beach was a lot of fun... More

My husband and I stayed oceanfront for four nights. We had a long walk on the clean beautiful beach, a nice long walk on the clean, beautiful boardwalk and in and out of shops on the strip. The weather was crisp and clear, perfect for photo ops and sight seeing. Locals are friendly and the towns pride and management shows... More
