The boardwalk is a great place to walk and enjoy the scenery, just make sure you do it in the daytime. We went out a couple times in the evening and were pestered by some vagrants that just kind of hang around the park areas. It was a little unsettling, but during the daytime . . . it was beautiful.

In front of the Hilton Garden Inn the plantings are fresh, mulched, and maintained. Next time I want to rent pedal vehicle and explore more of the Boardwalk changes.

A very relaxing walk and easy access to the beach. Attractive hotels, clean boardwalk and beach. But BUSY with skaters, joggers and bicyclists.

After dinner every night we were at Virginia Beach we would walk up and down the boardwalk. It was a very relaxing way to spend the evening and wind down from the hustle and bustle of the busy vacation day. During the day we did have problems with bikes, people don't seem to understand the difference between the walking path... More

Boardwalk was accessible right off of the parking lot of our hotel. Made for pleasant walking every night and easy access to the beach for a morning toss of a football with my girlfriend's son. Will bring our bikes next time though. Watching the sunrise was a joy in itself. Any doubts that there is a God needs to see... More

There was so much to see along the Virginia Beach Boardwalk. There were plenty of benches along the way to stop for a rest and everything is kept so clean.

The boardwalk, in addition to the expansive beach is the reason we choose to vacation here. There are many park benches along the 3 mile Boardwalk, easy access to public restrooms placed every couple blocks as well as numerous restaurants with outdoor patios & many shops, plus it is so convenient to access from the street. Signage along the boardwalk... More

This is a beautiful clean well kept area. The boardwalk provides easy access to many restaurants lounges and hotels. It also hosts several activities each year such as the King Neptune Art Festival that we attended here.

Big & open - easy to stroll or ride a bike. The double carriage bike rentals are fun, especially for kids.
