“Great boardwalk for walking and biking”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

This is the type of boardwalk that is good for a stroll. Most of the cheesy shops are not on the boardwalk in Virginia Beach. The are out on Atlantic Avenue. That means as you cruise this boardwalk you see nice restaurants and hotels. If you like the Ocean City Maryland boardwalk this will seem very different! But I prefer this type of walk!

“Boardwalk and VA BEACH”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Great way to enjoy the day. Pack up your chairs, umbrellas, suntan lotion, and towels.
You can play volleyball, parasail, bike, swim, or rollerblade.
There are plenty of restaurants on the beach to dine at. We enjoy the DQ and the scrumptious ice cream.
Have fun and don't get sunburned. Wear sandals. The sand is extremely HOT!
Make sure to pack a cooler with water, sandwiches, and gatorrade.
You need to bring quarters if you park on the side street. We park on 27th and Atlantic (near the Hilton hotel)

“Enjoyable”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

This boardwalk is very nice for those who like to walk or bike along the ocean. It is wide enough that you aren't dodging people constantly.

“Entertainment”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

There is always something to do on the boardwalk. The first day we got there was the air show and government vehicles on the beach that the kids were able to sit in and climb on. There are tons of restaurants and plenty of people watching. Several of the venues have live entertainment and kids are always welcome!

“Awesome!”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

You pay $10 to park here. There are other beaches that offer free parking. The beach is very clean and very family friendly.
