This beach was planned to be beautiful. Beach, boardwalk, landscaping, asphalt bike path, and more landscaping. Manicured constantly. It is my favorite!

Walking the boardwalk or sitting and watching the cast of characters walk by is always entertaining.

LOVE the Boardwalk! You can walk, jog, ride bikes (although no one pays attention to the fact that there's a separate bike lane, which can get annoying), grab a meal, etc! I walked the whole boardwalk several times during our visit--they keep it very neat...More

Grrat place all around. Anyone who enjoys outdoor excercise in the morning and drinking in the afternoon will love the views and fresh air.

Even with the planes, I have to rate the boardwalk 5 stars. Atmosphere is very casual. Neptune statue is very impressive. Many sculptures nearby.

They were when we were there. Lots of dogs. But I think restrictions go in place Memorial Day weekend as far as dogs on the beach-boardwalk.
Would like to spend the day at Virginia beach. We are staying in Williamsburg. Where would be the best place to park for easy beach access for the day, we are looking to plan a day trip on a Tuesday?

There is also street parking, and there is access to the boardwalk and multiple spots.
Where do we park to get the boardwalk attractions? Can we get on the beach by the boardwalk?
