  • This boardwalk has a bike path that runs alongside it. We enjoyed both walking and riding a Bird motorized scooter on the boardwalk. The views are nice and there is plenty of room for everyone.  more »
  • Staying at VA Beach Hilton oceanfront with the boardwalk right in front of it. Really wide and stretches down most of the beach. Lots of hotels right on it..cool thing to walk and stop for sights....  more »
