    Driving Directions

    The Open Road

    Follow these routes to reach the oceanfront with minimal delay.

    From the Northwest: Arriving through central Virginia, motorists will find a fast, alternate route via the I-664 Monitor Merrimac Memorial Bridge Tunnel (MMMBT) off of I-64 East. While mileage to the oceanfront along this route may be greater than taking I-64 and the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel, traffic volume is usually lighter. Simply take I-64 East to I-664 (Exit 264), to I-264 (Exit 15A), which leads to the oceanfront. When leaving to return home, take I-264 West to I-664 North (Exit 299) to I-64 West (Exit 1A).

    From the West: Convenient routes include I-64, U.S. 460 or U.S. 58.

    From the North: Convenient routes include I-85, I-95, U.S. 17 and U.S. 13 (which connects Virginia’s Eastern Shore to Virginia Beach via the world-famous 17-mile Chesapeake Bay-Bridge Tunnel). These routes intersect with I-64, leading to I-264 (the Virginia Beach-Norfolk Expressway) and lead directly to the oceanfront.

    From the South: Convenient routes include I-85, I-95, U.S. 168, U.S. 17 and U.S. 13. These routes intersect with I-64, leading to I-264 (the Virginia Beach-Norfolk Expressway) and lead directly to the oceanfront.
