What's it like in Virginia Beach?

Is it a place that feels safe and clean? I have never been there, but I am looking at beach locations on the East Coast for a vacation next year.

  • The Oceanfront is not too bad. I lived there for 6 years and it is very tourist friendly.

  • I don't want to offend anyone, but I would look a little further south - towards NC/SC. It has been a few years since I've been to VA Beach but I found it not so nice.

  • Can you tell me what you didn't like about it? I remember that I didn't like Myrtle Beach as a child, and don't want to go back to some place like that.

  • It was more commercial then I like, and dirty. I like clean, open beaches - like the Outer Banks of NC. I also like Holden and Sunset Beaches in NC, in SC I like Kiawah Island and Folly Beach (both are close to Charleston).

  • Of course I also like Myrtle, but they have cleaned it up alot, put in a brand new mile long boardwalk, torn down the old pavilion and put up the tallest ferris wheel on the east coast.

  • I love Mrytle beach but if you are looking for a Natural Beach then maybe you should go to Edisto Beach.
