“Have Lived Here, Left Here, Returned Here and Will Retire Here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

I have loved Virginia Beach since my first assignment here in 1983. I have grown here, owned homes here, and called this place my home for many, many years and hope to for years to come. Scenery, food, shopping, life in general are great here.

“We live here in paradise.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Virginia Beach is a family friendly, manageable resort town. There are so many things that we enjoy and try not to take for granted: clean beach and boardwalk; excellent restaurants (do your Tripadvisor homework); many, many clean and safe parks; historic sites, including a lighthouse from the 1700's; a wonderful walking town for dog owners. Leashed dogs allowed on beaches after Labor Day until Memorial weekend. Fair enough. Please, please be responsible with dog poop - pollutes the ocean and spoils everyone's walk.

If you love seafood, the city restaurants will wow you with fresh catches from local boats.

Don't miss a visit to the Aquarium!

“Visit First Landing State Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

As a Virginia Beach resident, I am always on the lookout for a close by escape fro the daily realities. First Landing and its well equipped cabins is such a place.

“Not Impressed.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

There is a nice boardwalk that you can walk on but there was nothing but hotel after hotel after hotel. No nice open spaces where you could enjoy the beach in its natural state. Beach was not attractive...some kind of pipeline stretched for quite a ways and some kind of excavating going on. This is one of our been there, done that places that we will not be going back to.
