    Public Transportation Wave

    by robertnavy Updated Mar 11, 2007

    Dont use taxi if possible gets expensive esp,, if goin from norfolk to oceanfront can cost $50 + so i reccommend the buses and the wave on the beach does take longer on HRT bus but only cost $1.50 also your personal vehicle or rental is good Atlantic ave street very crowded on roads during the summertime and watch your speed

    Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel

    by dln6874 Updated Apr 21, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are coming from the northeast to Virginia Beach, take the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. There is a $12 toll, but it is well worth it for the scenic drive, the 1-2 hrs saved off of your trip, and avoiding the I-95 traffic.

    Walking up and down the main Strip in VAB

    by butterflykizzez04 Written Apr 6, 2005
    Tiffany & Noel walking on strip at Virginia Beach

    While staying on the oceanfront, it is best to either walk or use the WAVE bus/Trolley system. It is very cheap. This helps with the traffic problem on the oceanfront side.

    Because it was preseason, the bus/trolley system wasn't running, so we walked.

    Now if your going to one of the many shopping centers in the town area of virginia beach away from the tourist oceanfront, then you need to use your car.

    Bike rentals and food

    Look closely and tell me WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?? I'll give you a moment to look it over........OK, SOOO What do yah think? Is it me or are they selling you BEER & WINE, then renting you a bike to go drink and drive about town for the day. What more could a vacationer ask for, BEER,WINE & a BIKE! Sorry just thought this rather amusing. I took a stroll inside and it had alot of thing you may need, food, gifts, beer & wine of course and many other things, kind of expensive, but it is one stop shopping.

    A two person car type bike

    by tpangelinan Written Mar 6, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Two person bike

    These are a 2 or 4 person bike set up like a car, now you would think 2 people are better than 1, this is not always the case. These bike are very heavy not so easy to move around. If you are handicapped like myself this can be the least amount of fun you had all trip. Now if your a healthy person these may be ok, they are not as easy to lock up while you go into a store as a 2 wheeled bike is and they are much slower.

    Rent a bike

    There are many bike rental places, We would suggest either bringing your own bike or renting one, you can cover alot more ground and see more on a bike, plus Virginia Beach has a wonderful bike path along side of the boardwalk for clear sailing.

    A cars a must

    by bugalugs Written Dec 12, 2004

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We hired a car as we landed in Washington DC, then travelled to Virginia Beach, afterwards visiting Williamsburg and Yorktown, before driving up to New York City.
    Although there is the trolley bus along Atlantic Avenue in Virginia Beach if you need/want to visit other places nearby then a car really is essential.
    This is the car we hired, didnt know what we were getting until we picked it up, my husband and the 'boys' thought it was 'pig ugly'! Me, I didnt care as long as it went!
    It was a Pontiac Aztec AWD.

    Trolley bus

    by bugalugs Written Dec 5, 2004

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Me by the bus stop on Atlantic Avenue

    Virginia Beach is a few miles long and there is a great trolley bus service which runs until about midnight. Its called the wave. It runs from 5th street which is the terminus to 40th street - the other terminus. Back and too it goes, there are bus stops but I think you can flag the bus down between stops.
    The fare is very cheap, but we got a 3 day pass for $5 each and this can be used as much as you like during that time, just swipe your card when you get on the bus.

    Walk, Run, Bike..

    by zanzooni Written Aug 26, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In beach towns I am inclined to walk around that way I won't miss anything. There's so much to look at as well as the lil' cutsie shops that carry things you generally can't find anywhere else. There is off street parking, as well as parking lots directly in front of the beach. I paid $10.00 for the whole day. We just left the car there, and headed up the street. There are cabs if one so desires. Not sure about buses, as I have no interest in taking them. I did see alot of people riding bikes on the boardwalk next to the ocean. There were tandem bikes as well as these 3 seater things...2 ride in back, with a surrey on top, and one rides in front. Too much work for me, as I am there for R&R.

    Free Parking at Oceanfront

    by dln6874 Updated Jul 14, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you're going to the Oceanfront in Virginia Beach, there are tons of parking - meter, lots, and street. Lots generally cost $5 weekdays and $7 on weekends. Even if you are going for the full day with bunch of people, there's no reason to have to pull into a parking lot. You can find free street parking around Baltic and 24th. I've never not found a spot - even on a weekend. But beware, these places are no parking zones in the evening from 8pm to 6am.

    To get there I flew from...

    by sexylady Written Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    To get there I flew from Newark Airport in New York,there are I think 2 flights a day and I flew with Contential airlines.It's about an hours flight to the aiport in Norfolk(the closest airport to Va beach).Obviously you can drive from any state ,get the bus or train too.I wouldn't recommend the bus for long journeys ie to New York.
    Your best bet is to stay at the shore and get around on the Beach Trolleys, which run from May through September (no service off-season). The Atlantic Avenue Trolley runs daily, every 10 to 15 minutes from noon to midnight along the entire length of Atlantic Avenue.

    The North Seashore Trolley runs Monday through Friday, every 30 minutes from 6:30am to 6:30pm along Pacific Avenue between 19th and 68th streets.

    The Museum Express Trolley runs daily, every 15 to 30 minutes from 8am to 10pm, to midnight on weekends, between Atlantic Avenue at 40th Street and the Virginia Science Museum and Ocean Breeze Amusement Park on General Booth Boulevard.

    Fares on any of these trolleys are 50¢ per ride for adults and children, 25¢ for seniors and disabled persons. Or you can buy a Trolley Pass, which costs $3.50 for adults and children, $1.75 for seniors and disabled persons; it’s good for three days of unlimited rides.

    In addition, the Lynnhaven Mall Trolley also runs during summer, from Atlantic Avenue at 25th Street to Lynnhaven Mall, the city’s main shopping center on Lynnhaven Parkway south of Va. 44. The fare is $1.50 per person.

  • I took the train going to...

    by glocgs Written Aug 24, 2002

    I took the train going to Virginia Beach. I would recommend taking the train because the train gives one a closer view of big cities as well as small towns the trains get into. Besides, if you reserve ahead of time you get very good rates especially if you are traveling with companions. Besides, train seats are comfortable enough to stretch out and nap.
