    All roads lead to Virginia Beach. When traveling from routes northwest of the Hampton Roads region, motorists are encouraged to use a faster, alternate route via I-664 Monitor Merrimac Memorial Bridge Tunnel (MMMBT), off of I-64 East, to make getting here a breeze.

Simply take I-64 East, to I-664 (Exit # 264), to I-264 (Exit # 15 A), which will lead to the oceanfront. When leaving to return home, take I-264 West to I-664 North (Exit #299) to I-64 West (Exit #1 A).

    When approaching from the west, other routes are Interstate 64, U.S. 460 or U.S. 58.
