Since its winter time great time to walk and enjoy all the Christmas lights and local night life. During the summer it's packed so winter time is best, cheap parking.

This Boardwalk is a very long Boardwalk, and very enjoyable place to be to vacation. I happened to be here while my husband was on business, so I did not have a car and I had to walk everywhere for a week, and this, my friend, is a LOT of walking! Many stores are closed this time of year as... More

How can you not come here if you're anywhere near the Virginia Beach oceanfront? The Virginia Beach boardwalk stretches for several kilometres, and provides ample walking distance. An adjacent bike path is also available for casual riders (fitter riders, wishing to go faster, with less risk, will likely prefer cruising up and down Atlantic or Pacific Aves). On a hot,... More

My preferred beach. I visit Virginia Beach each and every time I am in the area, summer, winter, spring or fall. There is always interesting featured attractions for entertainment. So relaxing as well as enjoyable.

Don't wear your swimsuit to the beach in December, but do don some comfortable shoes and a sweater or sweatshirt. Walk the boardwalk. Enjoy the holiday lights and the off season prices! Bonus- The boardwalk is an active Pokemon Go site!
