Plenty to do and eat.

Plenty of places to eat, entertainment every few blocks and lots of family things to do all within walking distance of each other.

One the loveliest boardwalks I have ever been to. Plenty of people watching, lovely sea air, and impeccably clean. Great bike path, but just be aware it can get congested with tandem bikes and those quaint carriages. Also, some tourists will literally stand in the middle of the path unaware, or uncaring that bikes can run them over! Walking is... More

The location we were at was great!! Not too crowded yet it had a steady flow of people walking, riding etc. Very laid back and chill. The people you passed were very friendly and always smiling!

We walked the boardwalk everyday for the week we were in Virginia Beach. Loved the flat well maintained concrete boardwalk. Lots of benches to stop and rest or just enjoy the people watching and ocean view. Do stop and take a pix at the Statue of Neptune.

Different from Atlantic City in NJ and Ocean City in MD – there are no stores on the boardwalk. I liked that. Also liking designated bike trails.

Endless troves of hotels and shops leads to a great variety of people wandering about the beach and boardwalk. Enjoy a walk or bike ride on the boardwalk, soak up some rays, and they choose from several different restaurants for lunch or dinner. My personal favorite so far has to be an Italian restaurant, Manninos (try the crab bisque). Great... More

I love walking the boardwalk at Virginia Beach! Beautiful clean oceanfront with shops and hotels galore. You can rent a bike or ride a horse, grab a bite or even a drink! Off season is an awesome time to take advantage of this great location. If you didn't bring a chair there are plenty of benches to catch some rays!... More
