“Fun place to vacation”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Virginia Beach is a nice beach town with many activities, hotels, and restaurants. The main area has lots of shops, activities, and restaurants. There are many miniature golf places (one even in-doors and one with a well designed jungle theme.). There are places to grab a quick bite to eat or places to sit down. There are more hotels than you can stay at all up and down the main strip (Atlantic Avenue), may with ocean views. The beach itself is long and clean. There are lighthouses to visit and a fantastic aquarium and marine center located just off Pacific Avenue. You can rent bikes or surrey bikes to ride on the boardwalk or on the bike lanes on Atlantic Avenue. There are parking garages, metered parking, hotels have parking lots, and some attractions/restaurants have their own parking. A fun place to visit and lots of activities to keep you busy!

“Nice wide sand beach”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

We stayed at the south end of the boardwalk area of Virginia Beach in February. Off season we found we had the beach practically to ourselves most days. The beach between the pier and the Rudee Inlet was very nice walking beach, firm sand towards the water's edge and not too slanted. The beach itself is quite wide and plenty of places to sit out and enjoy. There were smatterings of surfers out and we saw several schools of dolphins during our stay. Very nice way to unwind during the off season.

“Miles of beautiful beach, dolphins and a fishing pier”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

I was there in the off-season, so it was quiet, but beautiful, especially when the ocean was angry. Dolphins, military ships and some of the largest freighters ply the waters off shore.
A great beach with plenty of room for a wide variety of activities.
