Don't wear your swimsuit to the beach in December, but do don some comfortable shoes and a sweater or sweatshirt. Walk the boardwalk. Enjoy the holiday lights and the off season prices! Bonus- The boardwalk is an active Pokemon Go site!

The boardwalk is awesome this time of year with all of the pretty lights and displays. Was a perfect night to walk down the boardwalk.

My two daughters took me to the beach for a long weekend. The Board Walk has so much to offer. I do recommend the Horse Back riding but that is only done during off season.

It was so much fun to walk on the boardwalk of Virginia Beach in December. Even though I was dressed in a down coat, long johns, hat and mittens (It was 50 degrees) there were people swimming...or rather running in, getting wet and running out. The Christmas lights for a long way on the beach was a lot of fun... More

My husband and I stayed oceanfront for four nights. We had a long walk on the clean beautiful beach, a nice long walk on the clean, beautiful boardwalk and in and out of shops on the strip. The weather was crisp and clear, perfect for photo ops and sight seeing. Locals are friendly and the towns pride and management shows... More

During this time of the year, the boardwalk has their festival of lights event. All along the strip there are Christmas lights set up that you can drive by and see. If you have a hotel on Atlantic Ave, you can view the display from the hotel balcony. They have updated their lights and the display was pleasant to see... More

I like to do charity races and the ones in VA Beach on the Boardwalk are some of the best (Rock-n-Roll; Shamrock; Wicked 10K; Surfin' Santa - under the holiday lights). The local race organizers (J&A Racing and Road Rage Events) are the best!

I've been going here for years. By far this is the best maintained Boardwalk I've seen. Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is poorly maintained with poor access to restrooms. And needs more police patrols. Ocean City needs renovations and more Disabilty access.
