Rent a surrey with the fringe on top from Cherie's Bicycle & Blade Rental to pedal up and down the boardwalk.
Don’t Miss the Beachfront Nightlife
After sundown, the city heats up with more activity. Concerts fill parks between Atlantic Avenue and the beach (for the schedule, visit www.beachstreetusa.com). Meanwhile, entertainers―musicians, jugglers, clowns, and comedians―perform on street corners too.
Major steps forward: On the north end of the beach, a gleaming new hotel adds swank and swing to the scene. The Hilton, at 31st Street and Atlantic Avenue, sports stylish guest rooms and an exquisite rooftop pool and bar, plus it sits adjacent to the Neptune Park band shell, home of free concerts.
Across town, the newly developed Town Center hosts blocks of brand name shopping and dining, a towering new Westin Hotel & Residences, and the Sandler Center for Performing Arts.
And if the weather doesn’t cooperate for a day in the sun? Head to the Virginia Aquarium to see creatures native to the area. It’s the perfect way to tie up your visit to the Tidewater.
