To get started, you might look at the Top Questions in the box to your right, specifically "Should we go to Virginia Beach, Ocean City, or Myrtle Beach?"

You can also type in just directly above these posts the name of one on the forum for the other. You will see lots of responses, some as recent as October for Ocean City of the Va forum. Beach comparison is a popular issue.

With toddlers, VA Beach, hands down. Well, any time I happen to prefer VB. OC is just way too crowded for me. VB has plenty to do if you want to, along with playground equipment on the beach for the little ones, but it isn't as crowded so you can also have some quiet time.

With toddlers I would strongly suggest you consider the Sandbridge area of VB. Quieter and very family oriented.

VA Beach would absolutely be my preference. It is much cleaner and less crowded. There is also more to do in the VA Beach/Norfolk area if you tire of the beach scene. I went to Ocean City growing up but started going to VA Beach as a young adult and have returned several times. My last visit to OC a few years ago was a disaster; I don't care if I ever go back.
