We enjoyed our experience here. People were friendly and having a good time in the sun! We rented a bicycle car and rode down the board walk. A great time!

So much to do that fits anyone's budget. The beach is free and parking is affordable. Go off season to get the best deals. Very clean and safe area.

I recommend the north-end of Virginia Beach. The "boardwalk" starts there. The beach and the boardwalk are clean and relaxing. I recommend it highly.

I would hope that would not be a problem since I watched horses being led up and down the shore line all week and pooping. They had a guy picking up after them but could not get to some before the waves sucked it up, yuck.

Yes you can swim at any time. There will be a large police presence, so beer and other recreational mood altering substances will get you a summons at the minimum.

I had friends who are about an hour south of Virginia Beach and they said the same thing. The currents are coming from the north and not allowing the warm gulf currents to come through and warm the waters.
