This three-mile concrete promenade is always busy with bicyclists, strollers, diners and people-watchers. During the summer, three oceanfront stages offer nightly entertainment.

This is a great walk or bike and full sun! Wear your sunscreen. Great beach walk with lots of bars and restaurants nearby. This area gets full sun, so be ready for little shade. Lots of families and people are everywhere.

I've been to the boardwalk many times and it never gets old. You have to like the beach but I haven't met many people who don't like the beach. Everyone who lives in Virginia should come here at least once.

Well-maintained beach and boardwalk, plenty of life guards on the beach, and a lot of activities for both day and night. There is a separate bike path so the area is not crowded at all. Very family-friendly

I've watched the crews drag the sand every morning and seen them pressure wash the walking path as well. Landscaping is perfect, sculptures are amazing, the bike path is nice :) love the Beach Street USA entertainment...something for everyone...magic, puppets, orchestras, bands...good stuff for everyone...More

We went the weekend they had an art show. Maybe more crowded than usual but the art show was great. We were there when it rained pretty hard but we visited the beach and boardwalk on two different days.

Live entertainment was one of our favorite things at the Virginia Beach boardwalk. While we were there, the week before July 4th, there was a lot going on. About midway on the beach next to the boardwalk, they had to... More

The rentals are on each block of the boardwalk. The city uses Sunrise Beach Services. Look them up and you can see their prices on the VA Beach website. The rentals are available until 5pm on weekdays and 6pm on weekends... More
