On the heels of that coverage, Virginia Beach earned great placement on the Travel Channel online (UVPM: 897K) in a story titled “Best U.S. Boardwalks.” Virginia Beach was listed alongside Santa Cruz, Coney Island, Ocean City, NJ, Hollywood Beach and Wailea.
About Virginia Beach, the writer notes: “A boardwalk with pedestrian crosswalks and its own bike path? That’s what you get when you build a 3-mile-long coastal walkway in Virginia’s most-populous city. The concrete path is lined with high-rise hotels, upscale shops, whimsical sculptures, even museums. There’s also a fishing pier, and 4 outdoor stages for summer concerts.”
These articles have been performing well on our social channels, so we’ll continue to post.
