Family Friendly Fun

What are the best places for a fun family friendly outing in the Hampton Roads area?

  • Your Name: Jennifer

    Local Favorite Spot: Virginia Beach Boardwalk

    Tell us about it: The Virginia Beach boardwalk is a 3 mile attraction at the heart of the oceanfront. There is a separate path for people to ride bikes and roller skate or skateboard. There are benches along the path where you can stop and have a snack, conversation, people watch, or enjoy ice cream from some local spots. It is a great place to exercise, just walk with friends, explore the area or have a date! There are lots of hotels and restaurants along the Boardwalk, and of course running along side the beach is fabulous!! It can be extremely crowded during high tourist season, but in the off season, it’s a go to for locals to enjoy.
