The Virginia Beach Boardwalk is 3 miles of immaculate concrete and well kept plantings. It has a separate dedicated bike path.
The beach is combed and cleaned every morning.
The boardwalk is between the hotels and the beach.
There are no attractions or restaurants(a few) "on the boardwalk", everything is actually on Atlantic Avenue which is the street closest to the water.
Adjacent to the boardwalk are three stages for concerts.
The street nearest the boardwalk has live vaudeville style performers in 3 places every night.
There are fireworks Sunday and Wednesday at 10PM.
The problem isn' the boardwalk, its the city itself.
The area is always safe, but at night the boardwalk fills with people that may be good people, but you probably don't want to be around when you are paying good money for a hotel room.
Also, there is very little good food in Virginia Beach, except for Club 31($$$$$) and Pocohantas, we found little worth mentioning.
Nearby is a naval aviation station, which is where fighters go when their carrier is at Norfolk, so at 9AM, a parade of naval fighter aircraft roar overhead. Sometimes there are days with no flights, other times they fly over in groups of four, every 10 or 20 minutes. God Bless them, but they are LOUD.
