Let’s face it this is a cement road for people that has very little function out of season. Must be a big party in season but out of season even the amusement park is closed and I have yet to see a board.

Dear jfp2017,

Thank you for taking the time to share your review of Virginia Beach on TripAdvisor. We are sorry you were disappointed by your Resort Beach experience. We aim to please and total customer satisfaction is our goal so it is important to know when a customer is less than satisfied.

We pride ourselves on having something for everyone in Virginia Beach. Some of our longtime visitors don't realize there are many different vibes just waiting to be found across our coastal city.

There are a variety of neighborhoods and districts for those looking for nighttime family fun. The Chesapeake Bay side of the city is very laid back and local family-oriented, with both high-end and middle-range eateries, serving the very freshest of our coastal cuisine. There are also several very family-friendly waterside restaurants, complete with boat docks where some locals arrive by boat.

At just a quick 10 minute drive from the Oceanfront, Town Center is a great evening alternative for visitors. This vibrant hub of dining, shopping and entertainment options is located directly across the street from an indoor shopping mall on one side and a multiplex cinema with mini-arcade on the other.

We hope you will return soon and give us another chance.

Gratefully,
Team Virginia Beach

There is a lot to do at Va beach. Tons of shops and places to eat. The locals are very helpful and friendly. The only downside to this beach is it not very quiet or private. It can be very messy at times.

Dear Caleb S,

Thank you for taking the time to share your review of Virginia Beach on TripAdvisor. We are sorry you were disappointed by your Resort Beach experience. We aim to please and total customer satisfaction is our goal so it is important to know when a customer is less than satisfied.

May we encourage you to reconsider the second visit to give another of our beaches a try? The vibe in the Chesapeake Beach area is relaxed and the waters are calmer since the beach borders the Chesapeake Bay. The atmosphere at Sandbridge Beach is the most tranquil of all three beaches and borders a national wildlife refuge. There are fantastic beach houses for rent and a nearby RV resort where cabins and bungalows are also available for rent.

Both of these beaches are very different from the Resort Beach, and each other. We like to think we have a beach vibe for every taste.

Thank you again for taking the time to share about your visit. We do hope you choose to return.

Gratefully,
Team Virginia Beach

Virginia Beach is as beautiful as the people who live here. NEPTUNE is as big as it appears and is an amazing site.

There’s a lot to do here. So many restaurants, a beach, museums, etc. we went to Busch gardens 1 day (50 min drive) for the Halloween activities. The boardwalk is interesting & well designed. Definitely worth a visit!!

While I visited in the "off season" it was still nice and warm and I preferred less crowds. I could see there is tons for families to do in the seasonal months, as many shops and activities were closed for the season.

Our hotel overlooked the beach and we couldn't wait to experience it. A bit chilly in October but fun to walk and watch the action - ships, dolphin, and adventure seekers of all varieties.

I always enjoy this beach. It is clean, well groomed and the crowds spread out. The view from beach side hotels and condos is soothing.

My family cut our vacation short after paying to be in a parking lot on 21st. And Pacific avenue and still being towed because the tow company "didn't see my parking ticket" they damaged my vehicle and won't take responsibility..i cancled my hotel and everything. A city which let's companys prey on tourist will not see my dollars. Avoid them at all cost. Take pictures of your vehicle, where it's parked and your parking pass or become a victim. Other then that the beach was very clean and sunrise was beautiful.

Dear craig t,

Thank you for sharing your experience with us via TripAdvisor. Many people work very hard all year long to ensure the Virginia Beach experience is one which visitors want to repeat again and again. While we do hope that everyone in Virginia Beach conducts themselves in a manner which allows everyone to peacefully coexist, it is an unfortunate reality that there are always going to be those who refuse to do so. And, by their actions, negatively impact someone else's visit.

We hope you will return again to visit one (or both) of our other beach communities: Sandbridge and Chesapeake Bay Beach. Many visitors who aren't interested in the bustling Resort Beach find these alternate beaches exactly what they were looking for. We hope you'll return to see which one is your favorite. We are sorry you encountered such unpleasantness during your visit and hope you will reconsider visiting again.

Gratefully,
Team Virginia Beach
