2 Reviews & Comments About Virginia Beach


07/16/2018

The positives: This place has a ton of things to do for both adults and children, making it very family friendly and oriented. You'll never get bored. Cons: This is a tourist town, and some of the fun things, such as the boardwalk, are almost impossible for locals to access during the summer months. Also, the influx of population also brings along a higher level of crime during these months.

The restaurants here are plentiful and phenomenal. However, the people aren't always friendly.

Crime is low, schools are great, there is always plenty to do and there are miles and miles of beaches!

My favorite place is Ocean Eddie's on the Virginia Beach Pier. Great food at reasonable prices!
