Traffic in Va Beach

We are traveling to Va Beach this Friday for the weekend and I was wondering what time might be the best time to hit the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel? we are coming form Fredericksburg and we usually try and leave early so that we are hitting it before 2 pm but if we cannot leave until later what would be the best time? Maybe after 5 or 6pm?

Also, we are going to check out the Oktober Brewfest on the Oceanfront and was wonderng if it was worth it? It sounds like it might be pretty good?

Any help is greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!

We go to Virginia Beach often... best bet is to leave after 6 or 6:30 and miss all of the traffic!

Don't know about the "Octoberfest" stuff... but be careful after about 10 p.m. -- it gets a little crazy.

For your own sake, do not take The HRBT anytime around rush hour. It is a miserable experience. If you can leave earlier do it, try to get there between 2 and 3. Got to hamptonroads.com and there are traffic camera you can look at to be sure.

Also, if for some reason the HRBT is clogged, don't rule out the Monitor Merrimak. It might save you some time.

Good Luck and enjoy your stay!
