Love it love it love it! It is clean, it feels safe, it is fun and there are few people around. I'm relaxed, the ocean is warm, the weather is great. Boom. Yes, yes I just did that. Kids are happy, parents are happy. We didn't spend the college fund.

The boardwalk in Virginia Beach is a great way to get exercise right next to the beautiful ocean! Lots of joggers and walkers, plus you can rent bikes, roller blades, adult tricycles and large carts for families! Lots of cafes and restaurants along the way too!

This is by far one of the nicest boardwalks in the US. clean and well maintained. You want to rent a bike and take a ride. there is a seperate area for the bikes vs. walkers. Lots of showers and seating along the way.

Really enjoyed the Boardwalk, but it was not at all what my friend and I envisioned. It is pretty much all hotels, with some restaurants interspersed. The hotels also have restaurants. I did not see any little shops or the like. A block away is Atlantic, and there are souvenir type shops there. Between the Boardwalk and Atlantic there are... More

We were actually in town for a doctor's appointment and reserved a room at the Best Western. Top floor, beautiful beach, terrific sunrise (first one I've ever seen over the ocean). Lots of people having a good time. We were there just before the Neptune Festival at the end of September, when we were told the place would be sold... More

I think of a boardwalk as being made of wood. This wide walk is cement with a separate way for bikes and skateboards. It runs for most of the beachfront. There are bikes and carts to rent, but no food vendors or eateries along the way. Still, it's clean and well maintained, as is the beach. It's a great vacation... More

This a wonderful place to walk, run or ride a bike along the beautiful beach. There are plenty of places to eat or have a drink along the way.

Nice to walk along this area of the beach, lots of places to eat. Souvenir shopping is great! We loved a little shop on the pier for souvenirs. There are a couple of good places for coffee in the morning and then it is cooler to take a walk.
