all the hotels and nice restaurants

are on the boardwalk, you have to go onto Atlantic ave for the nightlife and shops. It's a nice separation. And I love the separate bike path

If you are used to the jersey shore boardwalks you will be disappointed. Best part of the "Boardwalk" really a (sidewalk)' was the street entertainers.

The boardwalk always appears to be clean, and you can look at the ocean all the way as you walk along. It's great that the boardwalk runs between the beach and the hotels, with the shops running down Atlantic Avenue on the other side of the hotels. Great set-up!

Rent a bike when you arrive that way you can view the entire boardwalk and figure out where you want to go on foot to.

This beach is awesome. Boardwalk and sidewalk are much better than Myrtle Beach. It's much cleaner and quieter that's for sure..

If you love the beach, and good food, come to the boardwalk! Rent a bike, walk on the beach, visit the carnival or get a good meal. No matter what you choose to do, nothing beats the wind in your hair and watching the waves crash along the shore!

My wife and I along with my son's family..twins..boy and girl age 5..walk along the boardwalk and it was loaded with people and hotels. It was too crowded for us as we we staying at a hotel on Shore Drive with less people and no big waves. I can not imagine how crazy this place must get during the summer... More

Great trip with family and what a beautiful weekend it was. Love Virginia Beach off season especially. Like to hang out at Abbey Road and the Raven and lots of other places, especially those within walking distance. Nice place to walk on the boardwalk and beach.
