LOTS of souvenir shops
Oct 2021
As one would expect in any beach town, there are countless boardwalk-type attractions, including believe it or nots and cheap tourist retail shops. Having said that, there are also plenty of places to eat, ranging from cheap stands to expensive bars. If you like miniature golf, there are a couple of those a block away as well.

Nice Beach
Oct 2021 • Couples
Not many people here and the beach is pretty good. Beach access often and facilities available all along the beach because there are restaurants everywhere. There are jets flying over frequently due to the navy presence. But that is the sound of freedom!

Pleasant vacay destination
Aug 2021
Camped outside of downtown Virginia Beach for one week which was long enough to see and do all the attrations in the area. Checked out the beach, aquarium, zoo, lighthouse, pier and other attractions.

Beach was clean and well kept. Not alot of broken shells all over the place on your walk down to the water which was nice. A little crowded, but expected as any other beach. Life guards on duty which was a plus, shows concern for safety. Feet washing stations. Only downfall was porta potties instead of public restrooms and as far as finding public restrooms on Atlantic Avenue while shopping, good luck. Most places either don't have public restrooms or have signs stating you can only use their bathrooms If you are a paying customer.

As for shopping, Atlantic Avenue has a lot of shops even though some are chain stores and you find the same thing in each one. There are some stores that are inexpensive and you can find other items than you find in the chain stores.

And if you like entertainment they have arcades and other familiy entertainment. While I was there the arcades were not the greatest as some were only half open or very small arcades. They have fun land, mini golf and water parks.

I would say Virginia Beach is a smaller version of OCMD, OCNJ, Wildwood, Rehobeth. Nice place just scaled down a little compared to some of the other beaches I have visited.

It was OK for an East coast beach
Aug 2021
Not as peaceful and relaxing as I was expecting. A little crowded I thought and not a great variety of shops and the like. The military air traffic was pretty cool at first, but later became a loud annoyance since it is almost constant.

Hi John P, Thank you for taking the time to share your review of Virginia Beach on TripAdvisor. We are sorry you were disappointed by your Resort Beach experience. We aim to please and total customer satisfaction is our goal so it is important to know when a customer is less than satisfied. May we encourage you to reconsider the second visit to give another of our beaches a try? The vibe in the Chesapeake Beach area is relaxed and the waters are calmer since the beach borders the Chesapeake Bay. The atmosphere at Sandbridge Beach is the most tranquil of all three beaches and borders a national wildlife refuge. There are fantastic beach houses for rent and a nearby RV resort where cabins and bungalows are also available for rent. Both of these beaches are very different from the Resort Beach, and each other. We like to think we have a beach vibe for every taste. Thank you again for taking the time to share about your visit. We do hope you choose to return. Gratefully, Team Virginia Beach

Pretty strong current
Aug 2021
This was not my first time on Virginia Beach and I really enjoyed fighting the waves every time. The sand is soft and you hit rocks on the bottom very rarely. This was the first time I noticed a strong current pulling North. I am not sure if this is seasonal or just happened for the few days we were there. It was quite difficult to stay in place, especially for the kids. At some point we just gave up fighting the current and started drifting. Then got out of the water and walked on the beach back to where we entered the water.

Drive past 83rd Street and up Shore Drive.
Aug 2021
My favorite drive in Virginia Beach is to drive along Atlantic Ave. and then on Pacific Ave. past 83rd Street. Keep going all the way up Shore Drive (4 miles) till you pass the area surrounded by forests. You soon come to a large Food Lion on your left. Very convenient for anything you need.

Beautiful Place
Aug 2021
I loved the relaxed pace of Virginia Beach. There are so many things to do and see. If you want to you can just sit and people watch. A lot of great restaurants too.

Awesome Beach!
Aug 2021
Virginia Beach was an awesome five day family vacation spot. We spent all five days on the beach which was absolutely beautiful. The beach was very clean. I suggest getting there early and finding your spot as it starts to get busy around 10am. It was nice having life guards especially with the kids.
