Today's Boardwalk is 28-feet wide and stretches three miles featuring a separate bike path, making it ideal for strolling, rollerblading and biking. Entertainment is offered nightly during the summer months and four oceanfront stages at 7th, 17th, and 24th and 31st Streets provide live musical acts. Along the boardwalk there’s a variety of quaint outdoor restaurants and vendors offering bike and surrey rentals. Nautical sculptures adorn many of the side streets which lead to Atlantic Avenue. While there, don't forget to swing by and see King Neptune – a twenty-four foot, twelve-ton bronze statue that stands at the gateway to Neptune Festival Park on 31st Street. This is perhaps one of the most popular photo opportunities in the resort area.
For the handicapped, accessibility ramps from the boardwalk to the beach are available at every block. Located at 8th, 17th, 24th and 30th Streets are eight-foot wooden walkways that reach the water's edge. Accessible restrooms are located at 17th, 24th and 30th Streets. Handicapped parking can be found along the main thoroughfare.
The Virginia Beach boardwalk has been a treasured beach hot spot for locals and tourists alike. But like a perfectly placed beach towel, the love has spread beyond our shores and thoughout the country as Travel + Leisure has named the Virginia Beach Boardwalk one of America's Best Beach Boardwalks. And who could blame them? Nowhere else will you find such a perfect mix of restaurants, shops, and unforgettable beach vibes.
Let go of those old, tired ideas of seaside dining, and feast your eyes on the most delectably fresh choices imaginable. Let go of the pressures of finding the perfect spot in the sand and surf. Let go of a raucous day of play and soak in the tastes of the season.
