Virginia Beach is the most highly populated city in Virginia and a few years ago, its population was estimated at 440,415. It is a stunning place to live (or visit) as it is lined with seemingly endless beaches. So for tourists it is great as well since it has tons of places to stay as well as eateries, right along the ocean. Indeed, Virginia Beach even made it into the Guinness Book of Records as it is home to the world’s longest pleasure beach. As well, for residents of the city, there are many large parks, universities, historical sites and more. Each year in Virginia Beach is the North American Sand Soccer Championship (which is a beach soccer tournament) and the East Coast Surfing Championships.
