Excellent city where to spend time with good heart people who come to enjoy the environment. It has been my favorite attraction since 2003, with the live shows, beautiful stores, and fine restaurants with different international couisine.

What a wonderful way to spend your vacation on the sands or walking or bike riding right up against the mighty Atlantic Ocean. Getting hungry? Pick from the numerous restaurants in the hotels or eateries on the Boardwalk or just steps away on Atlantic Avenue. You can't go wrong.

Nice boardwalk, but a blustery March day is not the best time to visit. Nice ocean views, Neptune statue is cool, lots of Pokémon and Pokéstops along the boardwalk!

Several newspapers have recognized the Virginia Beach Boardwalk as one of the top five boardwalks in the US. It's great for walking or bicycling. Separate lanes are designated for each. It's safe and active. On some weekends, you can catch free festivals, art shows, and live concerts. There are numerous restaurant patios to stop and enjoy unique cuisine and the... More

Walk, jog, bicycle, or chill on a bench; better yet bring a towel and soak up some vitamin-D. Virginia Beach's boardwalk has something along the way for everyone. Plenty of great places to eat and drink...and they all have a view!

I love this boardwalk. It has separate bike and walking paths. I have rented the family-style bikes and jogged the entire boardwalk. You can hear live music up and down and find all varieties of restaurants. So much fun for everyone!!

We were here during the low season so it was not crowded. There were very few walkers and bikers. The lack of crowd was a plus. Most of the souvenir shops, bars and restaurants were closed for the seasons. That didn't pose a problem for us as we were not there for these activities. I can only imagine how crowded... More

We arrived to Virginia Beach, VA for a wedding. What is Virginia Beach without visiting the boardwalk. It was very cold. But it was nice seeing young people getting engagement pictures done. Also, saw cute letters being made in the sand with a heart around it. The couple did a cute selfie. The beach was very clean. Garbage cans were... More

And the Blood Orange Margaritas were without question the best. Great vibrant place to walk into from the Boardwalk.
