Check out the eastern shore. Don't cross the bridge to VA beach. Better everything. The best seafood I've ever had was on the eastern shore of VA. Route 13.

holiday travel park on general booth blvd. you will have the navy planes fly over but it is cool as hell to see them that close up. they have a trolley that will take you to atlantic at the beachor you can drive your car and park in the holiday travel parking lot on pacific. they have cleaned va. beach up and it is more family oriented.

Holiday travel is one of the nicest places we've been. Several pools so the kids kinda end up seperate from the "relaxers". They have (as of a couple years ago, anyway) bands, DJ's, ect. several nights. The roads are paved, making for less dust & better bike riding.
It would be my first pick...You'll be right at home, when we were there we had they only United States license plate it appeared. I was told it was owned by French Canadian's...they ALL came to visit! Just about EVERY license plate was from Canada. Seemed almost like a time-share deal or something for the most part. They drove in, in a car loaded to the roof & (rented?) a permanent trailer on the site.
As mentioned, the trolly system comes & goes every 1/2 hour or so.
Just a little advice: Don't use your emergency brake there if it hasn't been used for a while...It WILL stick on, just ask me how I know! ;) Have Fun, Lorne

The KOA Campground on General Booth is OK. Living in Virginia Beach for 22 years, I'd suggest staying in the state park: http://www.dcr.virginia.gov/state_parks/fir.shtml

Yes, the beach has cleaned up a little bit and there is certainly a much larger police presence than there used to be in the 90's. Decent bar/club scene around 21st and Atlantic Ave. Ocean Breeze Festival Park, Virginia Marine Science Museum, Rudee Inlet, 15th Street Pier, Back Bay Wildlife Refuge, are all worth checking out. Lots of places to rent jetskis, bikes, catamarans. Parasailing, deep-sea/Gulf Stream fising trips, dolphin & whale watching tours. Depends on what you wanna do. There's a Busch Gardens about 45 min away and Waterside in Norfolk might be worth checking out.

Many of the mom & pop restaurants/stores are being bought and demolished by the city and replaced with chain restaurants and condos. Part of what I think is an effort by VB to emulate Myrtle Beach. The oceanfront is slowly losing it's soul...
