Meticulously clean boardwalk and beach. Separate bicycle path adjacent. Seemed to be very safe even after dark.

Had a great time walking along the boardwalk in the evenings. Had to be vigilant so that you could avoid people on skateboards. There were a few restaurants and music in the area where we stayed. We also got to watch fireworks from our balcony off the boardwalk.

Loved it, I spent a bit of time sitting watching the waves roll in on the bench there. It was nice and clean and peaceful. I almost want to move here for the sole purpose of becoming a beach bumb. Lol

I have been a Virginia resident all my life. Many years ago Virginia Beach started a big campaign to clean up the imagine of the Beach. They were installing facial recognition cameras and there would be a strong police presence. There is a strong police presence which I have no problem with. However, what I do have a problem is...
