Seniors Find Virginia Beach A Great City

NBC News says that “Virginia Beach is the best-run city in the U.S and is one of the most prosperous in the country.” At the southern end of the Chesapeake Bay, along the Atlantic Ocean in southern Virginia, seniors discover the lovely seaside resort community.

Popular with golfers, families, and college students on spring break, the resort is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as having the “longest pleasure beach in the world.”Virginia Beach is home to approximately 400,000 permanent residents, but that number rises exponentially during the summer as vacationers flock to enjoy the area.

Beaches span almost 40 miles, fringing the Resort Area, Chesapeake Bay, and Sandbridge, each with an individual feel and character… lively beaches, quiet beaches, beaches with incredible views, and access to scores of things to do.

Town Center is a popular stop when visiting Virginia Beach. From entertainment to shopping to dining to Town Center hotels, there is little left to want for when exploring the new, affluent destination.

Covering almost twenty city blocks, the center is one of the best places to stay aside from the oceanfront, and is conveniently located only fifteen minutes from the Boardwalk, the heart and soul of the city.

Boardwalk Draws Senior Visitors

Virginia Beach is known as a site for Bringing The Whole World to the Beach. Many believe it is at its best in the off-season, when the town is less crowded but the weather is still mild.

With 35 miles of shoreline, Virginia Beach is a “Beach Lovers’ Beach,” including its popular 3-mile Boardwalk. The Boardwalk has a 28-feet wide boardwalk that stretches three miles and features a separate bike path for rollerblading, biking or surrey rentals. Sidewalk entertainers, amusements, free concerts, gift shops and restaurants are all found on the Boardwalk.

 And more things to do:  classic hiking trails, state parks, resorts and great restaurants, great golfing and the State Aquarium. Virginia Beach hosts a wide variety of exciting events and festivals throughout the year. There are  fun activities for folks of all ages.
