If you have found your way to Virginia Beach.com then one of the biggest questions on your mind may well be, what’s the beach like?
I will admit I am not a very ‘beachy’ person, but for me I find Virginia Beach has a certain charm to it. The extensive clean golden sands, the fishing pier, the many gift shops, restaurants and ice-cream parlors give Virginia Beach Ocean front a lovely holiday feel.
You have the option when visiting the ocean front to either sit on the lovely soft sand and soak up the sun rays or walk the main street and go gift shopping, even try out one of the small restaurants, hire a bike, or buggy, if you are feeling energetic you can leisurely stroll the length of the boardwalk, and lots more.
Virginia Beach has many statues and monuments along the ocean front. The Virginia Legends walk is one of them; it was built to honor Virginian’s who have made significant differences to our country and the world. The walk has plaques with the name of the person and a little bit of information about what that person has achieved and where they are from, they include Patsy Cline to Thomas Jefferson, it’s certainly an interesting place to walk through.
There are a nice variety of places to eat near the ocean front; the usual fast food restaurants such as McDonald’s and Subway, but also more traditional restaurants that serve up fresh sea food, bars and grills and a nice Italian restaurant. If you’re not looking for a full meal, then maybe you would like to stop in many of the ice cream parlors or even the candy kitchen that has all the candy you could hope for!
There are plenty of places to stay along the ocean front; there are a wide range of hotels and motels. Most offer ocean views and undercover parking. If you are visiting for the day, then there are lots of places to park, some undercover and some in large car parks, all of the parking is very close to the beach and shops.
