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 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.
