Fun and friendly people. Bike riding across the boardwalk was a fun experience for myself and teenage daughter. Nightlife was entertaining with good music, live bands, and magic shows.

It's pretty amazing that this has a Dairy Queen conveniently on the boardwalk! HA! You can go and walk off the calories right away. But, the night life on here is pretty cool. There is lots to do. And of course the Pier is always fun to be on (This one you have to pay $2 per person though)

Virginia Beach Boardwalk is a very special place as I grew up close to that area and spent many fun times going there. It has changed a lot as far as the boardwalk. I actually like it better!

We were here for a two hour sunbath. The sunshine was good and beach was very nice! There were many people here and everyone seemed to be enjoyable!
