I am very impressed with the VA Beach Boardwalk. It is wide and clean with separate bike path. Every block has a nice sculpture or monument. Lots of nice little cafes along the boardwalk to chose from.

The beach is not crowded when I visited in late December, the weather was great in low 50's which made it very enjoyable. The pink and yellow colors from sunset was perfect for photography. What was ever better was watching the sunrise on the beach.

The beachfront at Virginia Beach is awesome! I love to stroll along the water where it is clean and others on the beach are friendly. The beach is free but the view is worth a million bucks!

This is just a beautiful beach, love that it is dog-friendly and allows horseback riding too. It is groomed every day which is nice to see. The bonus is the amazing Boardwalk - love it.
