Every now and then when I get Beach Fever and don't want to drive to our normal spot (4-6 hours away), Va Beach is the perfect cure. It really is a nice little getaway for the day. The beaches are kept up quite nicely, not...More

Very nice, and safe beach. Well patrolled, and very clean. Plenty of space for miles! There are two fishing piers that are open 24 hours. At least one had a restaurant on it. Sand was nice and soft. Very relaxing.

We loved the Beach, there was an Art Show going on while we were there, that was a Bonus. We could see the Board Walk from our Hotel, Comfort Suites, great Hotel, all rooms have a Beach View.

The beaches are clean, the ocean was not too cold, and there was plenty to do for a one or two week vacation. We enjoyed the aquarium and the USS Wisconsin (Nauticus) museum.More

It's been years since I have visited Va Beach, and even longer since I've been to the boardwalk. The cavalier hotel was torn down. At 31 street, the landscape and beach was beautiful. Further down, not so much, but that area was incredible. I was...More

Is the water clear? We have only been to the gulf but I want to take my family to Virginia Beach. The gulf is clear and we get in up to about chest deep (parents not kids lol) and can still see fine but I assume Virginia Beach is not the same?
