The Resort City

Holding a record for the longest pleasure beach in the world, Virginia Beach showcases 35 miles of coastline and maintains a longstanding reputation as a family-friendly vacation destination. In addition to hundreds of hotels and restaurants, the city contains many historical attractions, notably the site where the first English colonists landed in 1607. The resort boasts a year-round mild climate, allowing you to spend your days on the beach, and your nights exploring the famous 5 km (3 mi) long oceanfront boardwalk. The concrete boardwalk, along which local law prohibits the use of profanity, links visitors to some of the city's finest outdoor cafes and entertainment venues. Unlike some beachfront areas, beaches in this city can be accessed without payment or permit. Make Virginia Beach central to your United States travel plans using our United States holiday planner.

Where to stay

With over 10,000 hotel rooms, Virginia Beach offers comfortable and affordable accommodations for every type of traveler. Even with that many places to choose from, this popular resort area does get quite crowded during the height of the tourist season, so it is essential to reserve your lodgings well in advance. You can stay just steps from the Atlantic by booking your room at one of the city's luxury resort hotels. To stay near the water for less, consider a budget-friendly inn with an ocean view.
