The Oceanfront Resort Strip
This is what everyone thinks of when you talk about a "Virginia Beach" vacation. The resort strip is the heavily developed area that occupies the middle of the Virginia Beach oceanfront. You'll find lots of hotels, restaurants, shops, and attractions here. We think TripAdvisor's Virginia Beach Vacations section is a great source of information and reviews on everything from hotels to restaurants and things to do.
Getting Oriented: There are two main roads that run up and down the strip. Atlantic Avenue is the closest road to the beach and Pacific is one block back. The intersecting roads are numbered and then numbers get higher as you head north. The Virginia Beach Expressway (Route 262) empties out onto 21st street. Hotels line the waterfront starting at 2nd Street at Rudee Inlet and heading north up until 42nd street. North of that is a residential area know as the North End. South of Rudee Inlet is the Croatan residential neigbhorhood. Most of the rentals that are right on the oceanfront will be in multi-story condo buildings. There are still a few houses available in the resort strip area a few blocks back from the beach. You'll find most single-family vacation homes in either the North End, Croatan or Sandbridge areas.
