The focus of tourist interest in Virginia Beach—indeed, what most people refer to when they think of "Virginia Beach"—is the main resort area. It's comprised of 3 miles of condos, multilevel hotels, restaurants, bars, parks, the Boardwalk and, of course, lots of buttery soft sand. This is a pretty easy area to navigate. Pacific and Atlantic avenues (and the Boardwalk itself) are the north-south thoroughfares, with numbered streets counting down until they (and the land) terminate at Rudee Inlet and Grommet Island Park. Just across the inlet is quiet Croatan Beach, beloved by locals and surrounded by high-end houses.
