It was long and clean with a lot of buskers (street performers.) They also had many more official musical acts at pavilions.

Please allow me to preface this by saying that I am from Maryland, and have been going to OC since I was knee high to a grasshopper!! So it was a definite change of pace and local. I'm still unsure if I like it, or was it just a change up of flavor?? By that I mean it wasn't what... More

Recently went here to visit family and went to the boardwalk. Lots of people but didn't feel crowded at all. Beach as far a the eye can see! Hundreds of shops and restaurants all over. Hotels on the beach look fun, will have to try another time. Seeing the navy ships and fighter jets go by was thrilling! Highly recommended!

Not many attractions on the boardwalk at all, go to Atlantic ave instead. We thought it was going to be like ocean city MD boardwalk or wildwood, but it wasn't .

The boardwalk is nice, clean and has public restrooms located along it. It's nicely lit at night, and there's a separate paved lane for bikes, which is great.

Our son is in the Navy and is stationed here in Va. Beach. This is a great boardwalk for running, walking, or strolling because it is mostly hotels and restaurants that face the ocean front. Whenever we visit him we always come down to the boardwalk for exercise, not for breakfast or shopping because there isn't much. It so nice... More

Love going to Virginia beach every year look forward to the vacation with the family ... I really love the military Jets flying over at any giving time of the day ... The sun coming up and setting are beautiful ... And seeing the dolphins around 9 am in the morning is wonderful ... There is nothing I don't like... More
