The Virginia Beach Boardwalk is located at the eastern end of Interstate 264 which intersects I-64 in Norfolk, Virginia. It's an easy interstate drive from anywhere on the East Coast or inland. The sandy beach is several miles long with lots of room to lay out your blanket and take a snooze in the sun or play in the Atlantic.... More

The Virginia Beach Boardwalk has a lot to do and see on its three mile stretch. They have a separate bike trail, where you can rent bikes and sightsee. There are plenty of nightly live entertainment available throughout the boardwalk. they added a workout area on the beach to get in some exercise.

We went down to the oceanfront to watch a show. We enjoyed food from food trucks and was able pick up a small jacket for my son as it got very chilly by the water.

The boardwalk varies quite a bit. The lower end is mostly young people, some with kids who have the energy top party. The higher end (meaning the huhher street numbers, past 31st street) ia more for the seasoned visitor. Nice views, good food and a bit quieter.

One of the nicest boardwalks I've been on! Love the designated bike lanes! You can see the ocean clearly! Bands on boardwalk! Patio restaurants! Spotless! Can't wait to come back!

Decided to drive down just to get away for the wknd. Hit the boardwalk with my bike and enjoyed the leisurely pace and ride. Was a nice cool overcast day the wknd before memorial day. Easy access parking was available right off the boardwalk. It will get crazy and crowded during the summer, so its best if you arrive early.... More
