"Where the local live"

Shore Drive area is from Great Neck Road to the Lessner Bridge on Shore Drive. This is where most locals live or like to hang out in Virginia Beach. For example, most locals don't go to the Oceanfront, instead they go to local bars on Shore Drive. When we first moved here, our friends told us to live in the Shore Drive area and we didn't listen. Now I know why they recommended it. Steps to the beach, local crowd, close to state park for jogging, and very active outdoorsy living. This area is aligned to great schools, a mix between families with kids and singles.

  • Family Friendly:
  • Pet Friendly: Yes
  • Recommended: Yes
  • Recommendations: Its a fun area where locals hang out. Also it's close to the water and lot of the restaurants are on the bay.

Local Favorites

  • Restaurants: Chicks Oyster Bar, Bubbas, Hot Tuna
  • Happy Hour Spot: Shorebreak, Guadalajara, Hot Tuna
  • Gym / Fitness: Inlet Fitness
