Virginia Beach is in the Guinness Book of Records as "The World's Longest Pleasure Beach." Virginia Beach and the surrounding vacation beaches area offers the unique combination of an expansive sand beach, an over three mile long "Boardwalk,"
-- and a bicycle path - something for everyone.

Average Virginia Beach
No, I don't work for the Virginia Beach Chamber of Commerce, but my Wife and I have really been impressed with the places of interest in Virginia -- and the Virginia Beach area and nearby vacation beaches attractions in particular!
Virginia Beach has 38 miles of various types of coastlines - from the clean and improved to the rough and very primitive. There are many small "Hidden" Beaches in the area. (See our Virginia Beach Area Beaches Page.)
The surrounding area has many outstanding places of historical and scenic interest and great attractions within 45 - 90 minutes driving time for enjoyable Day Trips out from Virginia Beach vacation beaches.
