We finally arrived at Virginia Beach after a 4 hour drive and a quick bbq lunch. The weather unexpectedly dropped and it was quite cool for summer.

We checked in at Marriott’s Courtyard Virginia Beach Oceanfront hotel. The hotel was right on the beach.

This was the view from our balcony. I could see a long stretch of the beach and the beautiful and clean 3 mile long boardwalk.

There were all sorts of bikes for rent that you could drive on the boardwalk.

The boardwalk was lined with hotels and apartment buildings. Our hotel was at the north end where it was quiet and there were less people.

It was freezing! The weather was in the 60s and with the wind from the sea it was too cold for a dip. That didn’t stop the kids from jumping in the water though. I was happy to snuggle under my towels.

When the waves in the ocean got too strong we moved to the fun pool. It was warmer there too.

At night the beach was deserted and all the action moved to the boardwalk and Atlantic Avenue.

We celebrated Ethan’s 13th birthday with a yummy ice cream cake from Harris Teeter supermarket.

There were free nightly concerts near the center of the boardwalk.

We walked along the main street called Atlantic Ave. which was lined with souvenir shops all selling the same stuff.

Erin and I counted about 7 Sunsations along Atlantic Ave.
