A recent market study found that 58 percent of on-line planners sought out Virginia Beach vacation rentals when traveling to the area, and it makes sense to utilize this amenity-loaded lodging option. While situated near the Atlantic Ocean, this city is not just for beach and ocean lovers. Land lubbers will feel equally at home in this diverse Hampton Roads hot spot.
Dominating this city's cultural and recreational scene are the Boardwalk and the Town Center. Comfortable Virginia Beach vacation home rentals will take you right into the backyard of either attraction, or if you prefer, somewhere in between.
The prominent boardwalk is a scenic three-mile paved walkway that stretches from 3rd Street to 39th Street along the oceanfront, where charming restaurants offer the freshest seafood and eclectic street vendors along upscale shops provide a diverse shopping experience. Brimming with historic museums, lively amusement areas, engaging outdoor stages, impressive monuments, and artistic sculptures, the promenade has an International flair that attracts sophisticated visitors all year long. You don't have to walk either, because individual or multi-person bike rentals for up to six passengers are available as well.
Located off VB Boulevard between Town Center Drive and Central Park Avenue, the city's Town Center is a one-stop recreational epicenter for world-class shopping, intercontinental dining, relaxing spa services, and live entertainment.
For outdoor adventures, charter a boat and tour the waterways or go horseback riding at any of the equestrian centers on Muddy Creek Road, Princess Anne Road, or Knotts Island Road. Or, for a more serene pace, take a self-guided tour and stroll along Legends Walk between Atlantic and Pacific avenues, within walking distance to many of the Virginia Beach condo rentals. The park honors many famous Virginians like George Washington, Patsy Cline, Chief Powhatan, and Edgar Allen Poe.
For Virginia Beach, VA rentals, oceanfront properties will bring you within five minutes walking distance to the beach and only one or two blocks away from the boardwalk.
The town also boasts two spectacular state parks for invigorating outdoor enjoyment and camping under the twinkling stars: First Landing State Park and False Cape State Park. Located in the heart of the city, First Landing State Park features 19 miles of hiking and biking trails with camping facilities and plenty of opportunities for swimming, picnicking, and boating. False Cape State Park has over 4,000 acres of forests, marches, beaches, dunes, and bays where Bald eagles and other rare wildlife await your viewing pleasure.
At the end of a full day enjoying Hampton Roads' cultured land and water lifestyle, come home to one of the area's capacious Virginia Beach vacation rentals where you can plan your next day's activities surrounded by familiar comforts.
