Don’t believe us? Check out these amazing thoughts on Virginia Beach from the SocialMoms moms:

Cherry Blossoms says that Virginia Beach is definitely a place for a foodie! “Are you a food lover? (I know I am!) If so, Virginia Beach is home to MANY wonderful restaurants that have a plethora of food to enjoy. From Irish to Asian to Italian you will find that Virginia Beach has many amazing restaurants to suit your dining preference and style.”

Mama Bee Does thinks it’s perfect for families. “Now that I’m a Mom my moments at VA Beach are building castles in the sand, helping my boys learn how to swim and fish at the ocean, shopping at the Lynnhaven mall and eating out because even though I enjoy cooking when mama is on vacation she does NOT want to cook.”

Mommy’s Fabulous Finds says there’s so much to do on the boardwalk, you never have to leave the area! “There are so many hotels located directly on the boardwalk, with the beach always within a few steps. Lounge chairs, tents, and bicycles are available to rent and even a multi-person person bicycle! There is a paved bike bath that runs parallel to the boardwalk so there is plenty of room to ride the bicycles. There are a number of restaurants, shops, mini-golfing, and small amusement rides located directly on the boardwalk so you never have to leave the area if you don’t want to.”
