I really looked forward to walking the boardwalk but it rained our whole way through Virginia, and our night in Virginia Beach, but we did get to drive down it to see the Christmas lights- spectacular- in the rain. It was solid cars but moved along at a nice place.

The boardwalk is a great place to be near the beach without having to always be on the sand. The bicycle path is also a nice addition to have at VA Beach. My only "concern" or negative about the boardwalk is that sometimes the bicycles and the skateboarders get on the boardwalk instead of the bicycle path and you really... More

The boardwalk at Virginia Beach is a terrific place to walk/bike/run up to about 5 miles while gazing at the beautiful Atlantic ocean. You'll find a welcoming family-friendly environment to put you at ease no matter what time of year.

I am from California so the Boardwalk was not what I expected but it was nice and it was clean. I visited in Nov. and a lot of the stores around the area were closed for the season even though it was not cold yet. When I think boardwalk I think open all year long with lots of attractions.

The boardwalk was nice, though it's quite dead in the winter. The upside is that it isn't crowded with tourists, mostly just people out for a run or walking their dogs. Great access to the beach, though, and a stunning view. It's probably a great time during high season when more of the attractions are open.

Virginia Beach is absolutely beautiful. It was so wonderful walking up and down the boardwalk at 2am. I love Virginia Beach. It's nice and clean, the people are friendly. I enjoy seeing police on horse back in the sand.

The VA Beach Boardwalk is an iconic must-see. That said, we have been to VB many times and visited the boardwalk once, and that's just fine for me. There are several photo opts along the way. We visited during peak season and found it clean, not overly crowded, and even the public restroom was tolerable. Be sure to eat at... More

I had a wonderful time walking up and down the boardwalk. Seeing how beautiful the oceans was and the nice people that you meet. They have flag football games on Sunday morning and watching the Naval ships crusing the water. A must see
