Virginia Beach stretches 4.8 km (3 mi) along the waterfront of a town of the same name. Sunbathe on the soft sand, or shop for souvenirs on the main street along the beach. The white sand beach is bound by the ocean and a boardwalk featuring museums, monuments, and sculptures. Follow the boardwalk for the Virginia Legends Walk to learn about famous citizens of the state like Thomas Jefferson, Edgar Allen Poe, and Ella Fitzgerald. If you’re into fishing, try your luck along the fishing pier, accessible from the boardwalk. With our online itinerary creator, Virginia Beach attractions like Virginia Beach can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • We went to Virginia Beach because it is the nearest Ocean coast towards Washington. A typical resort town. The beach is available. Could not swim because the water and the weather was cool enough. Near the beach is a promenade where you can walk or ride a bike or rikshah-bicycles, rent of which kind of $30 per hour. On the waterfront there is a playground. Nearby there is a small amusement park. Also there is a House of horror-we walked late at night and saw people coming out of there. Told that really scary. Mostly very old hotels. We stayed at Hotel Marjac suites Virginia Beach oceanfront paid almost $500 per night-money down the drain. All very old, in very poor condition. Paid only for views of the ocean. We went to Key West in April this year and stayed in a luxury hotel of the Saints Maria suites resort for almost the same price, but these two hotels is just heaven and Earth. So disappointed with the hotel, decided the next time ride day in and day out, that is, the round trip without staying overnight.

  • If you like tall buildings that block the view of the ocean and shops to tourists, Virginia Beach is made for you! A straight Beach endless, burgers and pizza restaurants, not very poetic! There is only the Boardwalk and the old wooden fishing decking ($2 admission) which are worth the shot. Icing on the cake: the F16 which stand out of Norfolk and passing over the city every 10 minutes from 7: 00 a.m. to midnight! To be really in lack of the ocean for more than one night...

Where to stay in Virginia Beach

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.
