We love Virginia Beach. This is the first time we came during the off seasons. We still had a good time! It was cold, but it was so nice to walk through the strip with very few people!

The beach is clean and peaceful! Even on a cold day it's worth just going for a stroll. I was running along virginia beach for the shamrock marathon and it made the run so much more meaningful. Bring a jacket if you know it might be windy. Lots of hotels with great restaurants, and shops to keep you busy.

Virginia Beach is a well kept secret. There are hidden beaches in Sandbridge, state parks nearby, and lots of activities. The resort has a unique indoor skydiving facility near the oceanfront and a variety of hotels to choose from. There are a lot of dining experiences to have.

Dear DivaNYC007, Thanks for sharing your thoughts on TripAdvisor about your recent visit to Virginia Beach. It is cooler on the East Coast this time of year. One of the advantages of the winter months is the opportunity this season lends to enjoy our winter wildlife. Whales, seals and other sea life can be observed in their natural habitat during...

VB offers such a variety of activities that it should be attractive to the very young to the very old. In other words, families with young children or teenagers will find enough things to do here. That also go for active young people and more sedentary seniors. There are museums, parks, hiking trails, kayaking routes, shopping, beaches...that will make everyone... More

Wonderful beach, immense, with a totally great panorama, especially during Spring period because of the low level of visits. However, this is very windy and cold during this period of the year, so bring a coat with you !

The weather here on the East Coast has mirrored the rest of the country; we've had 80 degree weather in February and lower temps in March - go figure! Packing a coat is always a good idea, especially when traveling to coastal destinations. As... More

Nice beach if you are there for only the beach, outside of the hotels and restaurants there isnt much to do like there is in Ocean City or Myrtle beach, good spot for a relaxing get away, but not great to a lot of excitement.

Found the beaches to be one of the best we've been too. Would recommend to anyone. They groomed the beach at least once while we were there, not a lot rocks or broken up shells to walk on, just sand.
