Virginia Beach

Introducing Virginia Beach

With 35 miles of sandy beaches, a 3-mile concrete oceanfront boardwalk and nearby outdoor activities, it's no surprise that Virginia Beach is a prime tourist destination. The city has worked hard to shed its reputation as a rowdy 'Redneck Riviera,' and hey, the beach is wider and cleaner and there are less louts. The town's appeal, however, is limited: uninspiring high-rise hotels dominate the horizon, while the crowded beachfront and traffic-choked streets leave much to be desired.

Surfing is permitted at the beach's southern end near Rudee Inlet and alongside the 14th St pier.
