A driving tour of Virginia Beach Virginia Why is it so empty

24 Mar 2022

For this video I drove the length of the famous Virginia Beach strip As I entered downtown it was a spectacular day for filming with hardly a cloud in the sky The day was Wednesday November 18 2020 at 10 am Now we got really lucky on this day for two reasons One of them is the day I filmed was in November so it s considered off season It was very chilly the day I drove Virginia Beach with highs in the mid 40s and a very brisk breeze Which meant very few visitors In addition Covid was in full effect which kept even more people away As you ll see I was able to drive the entire 40 block stretch along Atlantic Avenue without stopping once For most of the drive there wasn t a single car on either side of the road It was almost as if I had closed down this famed strip just so I could capture it Virginia Beach has a population over of more than 450 000 people making it the biggest city in the state of Virginia During the peak of tourism from May until September this place is bonkers 19 million people come here every year to spend more than 2 billion annually If it's not college kids it s tons of families This resort city has miles of beaches and hundreds of hotels motels and restaurants along its ocean front which is directly on the other side of the hotels on the right side We re traveling north Here s what the ocean looks like on the other side Virginia Beach is clean and crime has really diminished over time Back in 2006 it peaked but was still only about average for the state of Virginia It s actually pretty family friendly And the city has spent a lot of money cleaning it up even more Anyways we re gonna drive all the way up the main drag then show you some really cool homes just north of downtown and another neighborhood that everyone says is great Here s the Virginia Beach main entertainment strip Okay so we re past the main Atlantic Avenue strip and we re going to now take a quick peek at a neighborhood just north of downtown Homes here are between 600 and 900 000 And finally here s a different type of neighborhood in Virginia Beach This is the Great Neck neighborhood located here on a peninsula in the middle of the northern half of Virginia Beach Homes here sell for around a half million each It ranks as one of the best neighborhoods in Virginia Beach that s not along the ocean That s a quick tour of Virginia Beach We saw the main strip and a couple of nice neighborhoods There really aren t any large rundown parts of town like in most major cities For a city of nearly a half million people it s really safe and very family friendly overall virginia virginiabeach You can buy my music here iTunes a https 3A 2F 2Fmusic apple com 2Fus 2Falbum 2Fstate-songs-an-album 2F1523790725 a Google Play https play google com store music album Nick Johnson State Songs An Album id Byfshzyrbjldelqferxc6vijljm hl en US Amazon Music a https 3A 2F 2Fmusic amazon com 2Falbums 2FB08D3G43VR a This channel is about America The best video on this topic
